Hi,

I am sure some of you know me and some of you don't.  My name is Shae Smittle and for some time I have worked on U-lite.  With the creation of Lubuntu, it is going to become duplicate work so I feel that it is time for me to work on LXDE directly.  This is especially important because I find myself much more interested in programming than packaging so I figure I would be of much more use as a programmer for the project than someone making yet another distribution.  Thus, it is with this in mind that I am introducing you guys to me and stating my intent to help out.

I hope to work on orienting myself in the code of the project and then to start off tackling bugs or anything else I notice to start off.  In the meantime, I am also sharing what I hope could be a brand new theme for LXDE here: http://forum.lxde.org/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=1416.  I just received permission to use the wallpaper so I will be posting it in its entirety tonight after I am finished with class.  If

If there are any particular things I should start looking at, let me know (such as style specifications?).  Otherwise, I plan on orienting myself to the code, tackling a few little details I have noticed while working on the theme and submitting patches, and then tackling other bugs and submitting patches.
