2011-03-24 Meeting Minutes

Old Business

Team updates

Packaging & Development

  • Included the new default wallpaper (still missing the full-sized second one though)
  • Fixed another bug in garcon, related to monitoring (Xfce #7423).
  • Included a patch from upstream git to fix a workspace size issue in xfce4-display-settings.
  • Restored the default blue for the alternative installer, instead of the aubergine that actually looks pink in all terms I tested (only gnome-terminal is fine).
  • Imported gmb 1.1.7 + shimmer patches.
  • micahg has uploaded xfce4-mixer 4.8.0 (but I didn't have time to check)

Bug Triage & Testing

  • We have the beta1 release next week. Any testing is really appreciated.

Website & Marketing

  • Still waiting on canonical to set up wordpress.
  • Suggestion from ochosi - it would be great if the first page would show the slideshow that is shown during installation.


I want to thank every artist for their work and I apologize for the license issues not being verified before the end of the contest period.
The wallpapers are at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Xubuntu/Artwork/Natty.

Xubuntu Governance

The Xubuntu Council

  • The Council size should be 5 members, with one of them being the PL.
  • PL will have a vote in every voting in the Council, not just as a tie-breaker.
  • The 4 members in the Council in addition to the PL should be selected by the existing Xubuntu Contributors.
  • The appropriate Team Lead can be the tiebreaker in a vote, but only if PL is absent.
  • The council should *aim* to have balanced membership across the different aspects/teams of Xubuntu.
  • The council should be named/selected after every LTS release. Thus, every season lasts for 2 years.
