Default Announcing the Xubuntu Marketing Lead, Xubuntu Xfce4 Liaison, Xubuntu Debian Liaison, and new Xubuntu Website Lead

Hello Xubuntu Developers & Contributors,

CC: Jono, Ubuntu Community Manager
CC: Jorge O. Castro, Ubuntu Upstream Relations
CC: Ubuntu News Team

*I'm happy to announce today several important additions and shuffles within the Xubuntu Team. Please join me in welcoming Pasi Lallinaho, our new Xubuntu Marketing Lead; and Jannis Pohlmann as our Xfce4 Liaison.

Pasi Lallinaho (knome) of Helsinki, Finland - a user of Xubuntu and Xfce4 on his desktop for well over a year now - has joined our team as the new Xubuntu Marketing Lead. Having founded his own business solutions and services company at the age of 20, this 22 year old entrepreneur/software engineer/artist/web design professional/jack-of-all-trades will be a huge asset to Xubuntu in helping to grow a strong marketing and artwork community. Being no stranger to the Open Source community, having contributed to Amarok for close to two years after all, Pasi has already jumped in with both feet by beginning the process of giving our website a much needed face lift and creating a countdown banner for the Intrepid release. You can get in contact with Pasi by pinging "knome" on Freenode or by e-mailing him at open@knome.fi

Jannis Pohlmann (JPohlmann) is a 23 year old computer science student and musician living in Lübeck, Germany. Jannis, an Xfce developer, is well known for his development contributions to the Xfce4 project, Lunar Linux, and maintainer of the Xfce4 goodies project (a service offering free hosting, svn repositories, and more to developers developing Xfce4 plugins or add-ons). Jannis will be joining our team as the official Liaison between the Xubuntu and Xfce4 project and will assist in maximizing collaboration and communication. You can get in contact with Jannis by pinging "JPohlman" on Freenode or by e-mailing him at jannis@xfce.org

Along with these two additions, we also have Michael Casadevall taking on the role of being our Liason with Debian and Vincent Tunro the role of Xubuntu Website Team Lead.

Michael Casadevall (NCommander), who recently joined the Xubuntu Developer ranks, has agreed to take on the role of being our Liaison with Debian Xfce4 developers. In addition to his work as a developer, Michael will assist the Xubuntu project in a similar fashion to Jannis by helping maximizing collaboration and communication with our upstream Debian counterparts. You can get in contact with Michael by pinging "NCommander" on Freenode or by e-mailing him at sonicmctails@ubuntu.com

Vincent Tunro (vinnl), who is a long time Xubuntu contributor and Xubuntu website editor, has accepted the role of leading our efforts with developing our website. Vincent's primary responsibilities will be to ensure that our website is updated regularly and appropriately with news stories and new content; perform administrative duties such as managing and giving direction to the other website editors; and will help keep our website "fresh" in general. You can get in contact with Vincent by pinging "vinnl" on Freenode or by e-mailing him at imnotb@gmail.com

I'm very excited to welcome our new team members and the others to their appointments. Please join me in congratulating them.

Thank you,

Cody A.W. Somerville
