- URL: https://code.launchpad.net/~xubuntu-dev/debian-cd/xubuntu-base
- URL: https://code.launchpad.net/~xubuntu-dev/ubuntu-cdimage/xubuntu-base
- Branches have been refreshed but could use another reviewer and testing. Since we're up to date on this, let's get this out the door first thing for bionic+1

AppStream:
- URL: https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-desktop/2016-February/004785.html
- Mostly upstream icon related issues. Icons need to be provided by the package or in the humanity icon theme. They must also be a minimum of 64px.
- Many of the required changes are being picked up in each component. Considered complete from our perspective.

Pidgin theme:
- URL: https://github.com/shimmerproject/pidgin-elementary
- Pidgin will require patching to support installing this theme globally

GTK Theme Config
- No longer possible to work universally with all GTK+ 3 themes
- Removed from Debian and Bionic. It may return in a later release, but limited to a select few themes.

Fonts:
- URL: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1oAkWhSp-Lpo-g1Vv91APlmr5L_erfarN_45CSxyxrxc/edit#gid=0
- All additional fonts installed on Xubuntu provide additional language support and should not be removed without a much larger discussion.

FLYER UPDATE:
General:
– Add a direct link to the download page
Front page:
– Replace screenshot with one from 18.04
What can I do with Xubuntu?:
– Modify the text to be more about the Xubuntu experience as a whole rather than highlight specific apps (with names)?
In the Ubuntu ecosystem:
– Ubuntu does not use Unity any more...
Software in Xubuntu:
– Replace "from GNOME and KDE" with "from other desktop environments", or maybe just "with different toolkits like Qt"?
– I'd drop mention of GNOME and KDE, and dependencies (a bit out of scope for a flashy flyer) and just say that it can run any Linux applications [lyz]
Help & Support:
– Mention official docs first under the Help & Support section (same with website)?
Local communities:
– Do we want to keep the community photo?
– I'm inclined to drop mention of LoCos, there aren't many active ones these days [lyz]
– In general, the flyer is very wordy, people like pretty things. Maybe replace the LoCo section with a section about our beautiful community-contributed default backgrounds [lyz]
– Adjust the Contribute section and mention it's volunteer-driven [lyz]
– Link to blog and social media stuff [lyz]
Xubuntu 18.04: WebsiteEdit Whiteboard
1 of 3 (33%)
Redirects needed:
- getxubuntu -> download
- getxubuntu/requirements -> requirements
- Article permalink structure?

Front page refresh:
- Show the current LTS and regular release on the front page
- News visible on the front page?
- A different style for the header (maybe extend the background area and overlay the intro on it?)
