 * Keep the bugs coming in, please
  * We are tracking the Oneiric bugs at

==== Website & Marketing ====

 * beardygnome brought up the ability to add the Xfce news feed to the
   Xubuntu website. This seems like a very good idea, since Xubuntu is
   based on Xfce, and it would help to keep us informed of any changes
   being planned.
 * beardygnome wrote another awesome review which was replied to here:
  * fixed most things, but I asked some questions there, particularly
   about documentation and translations stuff I don't understand (so
   can't fix on the site)
 * there is also an outstanding bug that the site isn't translatable,
   if someone familiar with doing translations and wordpress is around
   please contact either charlie-tca or pleia2 in #xubuntu-devel about
   how to handle the site moving forward

==== Artwork ====

 * We could use help testing a new plymouth in Oneiric Ocelot.

   test this
 * we need a lightdm theme - madnick will work this
 * there's a git-repo for greybird
  * https://github.com/shimmerproject/Greybird
 * can't themes be added to a ppa so when an update to the theme is
   done we can see it on the update manager?

==== Documentation ====

 * We need someone that can go through the wiki documentation and
   update it.
