Simon Quigley updates us on the progress made by the Lubuntu team. It includes a list of work done on artwork, seed, Calamares, desktop, and more - with links to more details. He asks for help in testing the LTS to LTS upgrade path before 18.04.1 comes out later this month. Simon also specifically mentions the 32-bit images the flavor still produces, asking for help in testing it as well - otherwise this may change.

## Things Ubuntu-specific are great, but general Linux goings-on are good to, to an extent.
## We don't need to replicate Digg & Slashdot, but certain things are of special interest.
## Just pulling one example from my memory, the story about Indiana schools piloting
## a classroom Linux deployment, a portion of which was Ubuntu, are good. Ubuntu
## release reviews are also common items in this section.
