Xubuntu packageset

The Xubuntu team maintains a subset of packages in the Ubuntu archive. The Xubuntu packageset for the current development release can be found listed at the packageset archivearchive.

Development PPAs

The Xubuntu developers use several PPAs (personal package archives) for staging, testing and previewing new packages and package versions. These PPAs can be found under the Xubuntu Developers page on Launchpad.

Currently, the official PPAs for development use are:
