[xubuntu-users] Xubuntu on the Raspberry Pi 2/3/3B+

I've been working on some installers for Xubuntu 18.04 for the
Raspberry Pi.  Would this be of interest to anybody on the list?

I've made armhf and arm64 versions.  I posted an early armhf version
on this raspberry pi thread
https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=56&t=209763 .  I
posted it for people to test, but so far nobody has!

I've since spotted a couple of things that need correcting (nothing
big just a spelling mistake on the cmdline.txt), and I've changed how
I do a few things.  I'm waiting to see if I get a response to a couple
of bug reports before I post the final versions.

I think it's the first time a fully automated ubiquity has been used
on the pi.  The arm64 version is currently unique in *ubuntu.

For those who don't like the idea of downloading something from a
complete stranger (quite right too), I've updated the Ubuntu raspberry
pi wiki - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ARM/RaspberryPi - so you can install
xubuntu 18.04 via official installation media.  Let me know if
something is wrong/needs changing with that, but of course it would be
better if you could make the updates yourself!
