Perhaps it would be better that i post the link here.
The aim of the Xubuntu community project is to provide a nice Ubuntu desktop experience (even on older hardware) by using Xfce4 as the desktop environment and GTK+ 2 applications wherever possible.
Xfce4 has been supported in Ubuntu's universe by the MOTUXfce team since Hoary. For Breezy we want to go one step further and make Xubuntu a sibling of Ubuntu, Kubuntu, and Edubuntu by having install and live CD images generated for it. We haven't decided on a release date, but it should be as close as possible to Breezy's and should use the latest stable Xfce 4.2.x code.
as of 27 sep:
xubuntu-desktop uploaded to universe containing Xorg + Xfce4.2.2 core + goodies + xfce4-terminal + xfmedia
xubuntu-devel mailing list created (thanks jdub!)
as of 30 sep:
firefox, gaim, and synaptic added to xubuntu-desktop
xubuntu-devel mailing list and #xubuntu IRC channel (irc.freenode.net) activated (mostly regarding package selection)
closed 3 out of 6 Xfce bugs in Malone, that's 50% !
there's a proposed logo (Steve)
the newest member of MOTUXfce, Markus, started packaging xfce4-taskmanager and filed ITP in Debian
as of 6 oct:
esound will be part of xubuntu, but it is not set up yet by default
worked on a gtk2-only evince, looks promising, need to make a package of it
Jozsef Mak has been working on wallpapers and an usplash image
Markus packaged the taskmanager, it's on REVU waiting another vote
volume management with ivman was discussed on the list, need to evaluate it
List of tasks
These need integration with xfce settings so that the default install has as much as possible of it set up and working.
Printing support (cups/gimp-print-drivers/foomatic ?)
Volume manager for automounting media (ivman? pmount?)
As stated above, the criteria for packages to be included is: GTK+ 2 apps, preferably with no GNOME dependencies because of memory footprint issues which consequently affect general performance particularly on older hardware.
It may be a little early, but here is the first logo suggestion:
