- URL: https://code.launchpad.net/~xubuntu-dev/debian-cd/xubuntu-base

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.

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