The purpose behind this list is user support, the purpose behind the -devel
list is all things related to development. Everybody starts out with zero
credibility, that shouldn't scare you off ;-)

Feel free to send it to the -devel list, but if you really don't want to you
can mail me personally as well. That said, I'll have to say that it's
unlikely that much will happen - some because there are reasons for Xubuntu
not to include stuff (which I'll give to you, of course :), some because the
devs are busy (especially with 8.10 being released tomorrow)... but you
never know ;-)

That's the way I like to hear it ;-)
