I just wanted to drop a brief comment about this statement:

"Please don't make extra work for our scarce and overworked developers :)"

I've honestly wondered about that for some time now. While I'm no dev by any 
stretch of the imagination I have been involved in Ubuntu iso-testing for well 
over 3 years, and recently the number of "suggestions" regarding Lubuntu here 
at the mailing list have been almost overwhelming.

How much time has this taken away from fixing actual bugs or implementing 
meaningful change?

While it's great to have someone new and energetic join the team it's also 
important for the new members to give the actual devs time to deal with the 
basic tasks of maintaining the project ;^) 

I hope that doesn't sound too harsh. As always thanks to everyone for 
everything they do,

This mailing list is more likely to be seen and responded to by Lubuntu
developers than forum threads, IMO.

Please don't make extra work for our scarce and overworked developers :)

Instead, if you are interested in tracking progress towards Lubuntu
12.04, please login to the wiki and read the wiki page at


then click the "Subscribe" button so you are emailed about all changes
to that page.

Then, subscribe to each of the Lubuntu 12.04 blueprints on Launchpad, so
you will automatically get emails as they are updated.


is one such blueprint, I can't seem to find the others right now, I
think that there should (theoretically) be one each for the "clean
house" and "organization" parts of the plan too.  Maybe Julien can
provide pointers to those for us.
