 Second, I suggest given that UDS for Karmic +1 is likely going to be
 in two months, that we draft a new spec for that UDS for/from and most

 approach of UDS is one reason I think it would be good to establish some
 things like governance now rather than to do so later.

Given how late in the game we are, what if we focused on helping
Andrew polish his LXDE packages with nicer default settings than it
currently has, possibly with an Ubuntu theme from the background
image, GTK2 theme and OpenBox theme for Karmic?

Then we could meet at the upcoming UDS to properly plan this and enjoy
the whole Karmic+1 cycle to produce a superb Lubuntu release for the
next Ubuntu LTS.

Personally, I feel that this is necessary, especially from the
perspective that FF is already in place and we suddenly get a dozen of
ideas as to what would constitute a good default selection of
applications and a good Lbuntu theme.

How does that sound?

Hi,

Thanks for making this clear. The goal for lubuntu was from the start
to build a strong and broad community, that can take care of tasks.
For example Debian packages that have been made available during
recent months by Andrew Lee and others were also planned and released
to lay the groundwork for lubuntu.

 I think what Scott says about some form of formalizing governance is
 actually very correct.

How should a formalizing governance look like? Is it necessary at this stage?

 However, the meta package (any meta-package
 instance) has a snapshot instance of the seed; it does not pull or re-
 germinate it when it builds.  Hence, as long as it is safe at the time
 of submission, a given update of the package will be safe, well, at
 least for the current one.  Also, we could setup a separate release
 subteam that is not open commit, and have it moved to there.  I think we
 should hold a quick IRC meeting in any case to ratify some basic
 governance...

I suggest to meet on IRC freenode #lubuntu
on Sep. 6, 15.00 GMT

Please help to set up an agenda:

Please also have a look at existing IRC meet ups to understand
decisions that have been made for reasons stated in previous meet up

 An exception is only necessary for the first inclusion of the package. 
 Adjusting dependencies (default applications) can be made without exceptions 
 (unless most of applications changed).

 Ah, that's good to hear.

 IMO, another lubuntu package is not necessary, because there is already
 lxde meta-packages which pull LXDE components (see lxde-common source
 package). If we are not happy with this, we could modify it to include
 packages we want, instead of splitting the seed.

 Actually, we at least need a separate theme package. Personally, I
 don't care for most of the default applications currently included, so
  I'd rather install some meta-package that pulls a theme and sets it
 as the default, in addition to pulling core LXDE packages.

 Is there any way I could branch the seed and propose changes to that
 via a branch, before the team agrees on what the meta-package will be
 and makes a first upload?

I personally like the all-blue background with the bubbly logo best.
I'd however omit the LXDE logo from the Ubuntu circle, since it looks
like some creepy insect. Instead, I'd focus on this nearly translucent
bubbly Ubuntu circle and adopt that as our logo, for the boot splash,
desktop background and Start menu icon.

FWIW, here, I've been using an orange and grey theme on my desktop. If
you look at the default themes that come with OpenBox, there's one
with orangeish window title bars that look very Ubuntu-Human friendly.
Combining this with some greyscale version of the bubbly Ubuntu
circle, we'd have ourselves some really cool Lubuntu style: Ubuntu
orange with LXDE grey and blue. We could use those 3 colors as our
primaries for our version of the Ubuntu circle logo and as our colors
for the default desktop theme, in combination with the Ubuntu Human
icon theme.

How does that sound?
