* We are tracking the Oneiric bugs at
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Xubuntu/Bugs/OneiricOcelot

==== Website & Marketing ====

* beardygnome brought up the ability to add the Xfce news feed to the
Xubuntu website. This seems like a very good idea, since Xubuntu is
based on Xfce, and it would help to keep us informed of any changes
being planned.
* beardygnome wrote another awesome review which was replied to here:
https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/xubuntu-devel/2011-July/007898.html
* fixed most things, but I asked some questions there, particularly
about documentation and translations stuff I don't understand (so
can't fix on the site)
* there is also an outstanding bug that the site isn't translatable,
if someone familiar with doing translations and wordpress is around
please contact either charlie-tca or pleia2 in #xubuntu-devel about
how to handle the site moving forward

==== Artwork ====

* We could use help testing a new plymouth in Oneiric Ocelot.
* http://www.madnick.se/~madnick/xubuntu
* Please contact charlie-tca or madnick in #xubuntu-devel to help
test this
* we need a lightdm theme - madnick will work this
* there's a git-repo for greybird
* https://github.com/shimmerproject/Greybird
* can't themes be added to a ppa so when an update to the theme is
done we can see it on the update manager?

==== Documentation ====

* We need someone that can go through the wiki documentation and
update it.
