Whiteboard

Ongoing tasks:
[slickymaster] Run calls for package translations defined in https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Xubuntu/Processes/Documentation

Improvements for the docs:
– Talk more about general configuration and settings available, for example:
  – Presentation mode for xfpm
  – Controlling volume (rename "Media applications" to "Media"?)
  – Enabling menu accelerators

Helpful stuff for XSL hacking:

New dependencies from PDF exports:
– build-time: fop
– build-time: fonts-droid (Droid Sans)
– Open Sans, but there is no package, so the necessary files are included in the source
