Whiteboard

The website improvements are targeted for several web-related services/sites:
 * Xubuntu wiki
 * Xubuntu website
 * Other services at xubuntu.org
 * Xubuntu browser start page
 * Xubuntu Launchpad teams
 * Xubuntu team calendar (<email address hidden>)

Improvements include:
 * Wiki and website cleanup and review
 * Interface for managing countdown banners
 * Generally, all bugs reported against the website: https://bugs.launchpad.net/xubuntu-website-wordpress

The CSS class templates should be very general in nature, but offer powerful tools to manage the content layouts as well as make it easier to enhance content with images. If needed, the templates can use [shortcodes] too, especially if the markup to achieve the wanted goal is very complex.

Launchpad team/project structure:
 * Remove (or archive) xubuntu-website, rename xubuntu-website-wordpress to replace
 * Review ~xubuntu-doc (Is it technically required? Which access/permissions does it have since it's a subteam of ~ubuntu-doc?)
