Whiteboard

Staging PPA for all uploads : https://launchpad.net/~lubuntu-dev/+archive/ubuntu/lts-xenial

For python3:
 - http://summit.ubuntu.com/uos-1511/meeting/22568/python3-only-on-the-images/
 - Replace LSC by appgrid
 - blueman need to be update
 - ...

For update-notifier :
 - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UpdateNotifier
 - https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/desktop-r-reduced-power-ram

Brendan For freeing up space ncdu with an interactive ncurses interface works on alternates but not desktop isos. Removing the desktop seed might break oem config from alternate installer. Which I doubt is used often.
2. there are several open bugs LP 1252421, https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/file-roller/+bug/1409185

And more for abiword and gnumeric maybe create a metapackage not installed by defualt that brings in the docs for these office programs file roller and evince that would be easy to point users in irc to if they want offline docs.
