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

Improved developer documentation. Useful topics to cover:
- Configuring development environment for Xfce and Xubuntu
- Debian packaging for Xubuntu packages (including gbp)
- Launchpad git workflow (WIP https://wiki.xubuntu.org/devel/git)
- Release process for applications (similar to the Xfce docs)
- Standard SRU practices to backport fixes to LTS

– 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]

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?)
– Use Gutenberg for laying out content
  – A block for latest posts (output with the excerpt) and a parameter for offset?
  – Reliability of Gutenberg columns?
