Re: [Lubuntu Community] Cleaning up Routine & Activities


I just wanted the group to know that I willing to help out where ever there is a need.  Just let me know and I will contribute.  I have older laptop equipment and I did some testing on 12.04, 12.10, and 13.04 but fell off because of school work.  I am committed to Lubuntu and its purpose so, just inform me where there is a need and I will do my best!!
