You can share your ideas with the team, maybe people will be interested
to help :)
Personally, I started to communicate / advertise a bit more since the
11.10 release, and I hope to increase this during this cycle.


 Another step ahead is having more members with groups, each group is
 in charge of ONE TASK. Having that said, members will stay focus and
 their productivity will be higher.
Why not making a Marketing Team, and organize yourself the different
tasks ? This is part of my thought regarding the organization of the
team :
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/Developers/P-Plan#Spec_organization .
I'm sure Mario Behling or Raphael Laguna will be happy to help too :)

The priorities are optimizations and stabilizations, and adding most needed and 
wanted features. I personally don't think we should compare us with other 
distros (even Xubuntu). We have a goal, Xubuntu has another, let's just trying 
to do our best to improve ourselft for our users :)

+1
Couldn't agree more.
We need to stop comparing ourselves to other distribution BUT in the same
time, we must keep ourselves up to date and keep looking for better features
to add. Checking on other projects IS helpful but comparing and trying to
adopt exactly or similar approaches might NOT be good idea all the time.

For example, if one feature in XFCE will slow down LXDE, I personally will
vote against it no matter what.

LXDE is super fast and it should be like that as always. This is my personal
opinion :)

[Lubuntu-desktop] Lubuntu Future - Target Market

2011-10-20 Thread Rob
So, I guess I have a philosophical question to ask of the Lubuntu 
developers;  where do you want to take Lubuntu and what do you want to 
achieve in coming releases?


Today, there clearly is a distinction between Ubuntu(unity/gnome), 
xubuntu(xfce), and lubuntu(lxde). While Ubuntu is feature rich and 
heavy, Lubuntu is light-weight and moderate. Xubuntu falls in between. 
But what about tomorrow?


Are you planning on just putting out a solid ubuntuized LXDE version or, 
are our going to carefully add features to close the gap with xubuntu 
while still keeping an eye on light weight (yes the two are not mutually 
exclusive.)


Personally, I have tried both versions and IMO think Lubuntu has a lot 
more promise.
