Packaging tasks for Lubuntu Lucid

Registered by Julien Lavergne on 2009-10-24

This spec is about all the packaging tasks necessary for the Lubuntu Lucid release. It will include :
- Building daily iso of Lubuntu like others flavors
- Separate package for default settings
- Package theme(s) and artwork(s)
- Package LXDE components (uploading snapshot of svn, packages new stuff)
- (Optional) Set-up a "dummy" team and mailing list only for all bug reports of all packages of the seed (for not spamming lubuntu-desktop)
- (Optional) Set-up and maintain testing PPA with upcomming packages/testing

This spec is not about choosing default applications, default settings or the artwork.

Impact on :
- Lubuntu Live-CD
- lxde component (lxde-common, pcmanfm, lx* etc ...)
- lxdm
- libfm and new pcmanfm
