Lubuntu Future - Target Market


So, I guess I have a philosophical question to ask of the Lubuntu developers; where do you want to take Lubuntu and what do you want to achieve in coming releases?

Today, there clearly is a distinction between Ubuntu(unity/gnome), xubuntu(xfce), and lubuntu(lxde). While Ubuntu is feature rich and heavy, Lubuntu is light-weight and moderate. Xubuntu falls in between. But what about tomorrow?

Are you planning on just putting out a solid ubuntuized LXDE version or, are our going to carefully add features to close the gap with xubuntu while still keeping an eye on light weight (yes the two are not mutually exclusive.)

Personally, I have tried both versions and IMO think Lubuntu has a lot more promise.
