Ok so everyone should have noticed that Xfce 4.4-rc1 (188.8.131.52) is
released and has ended in our svn. unreleased.txt  has been updated.
It would be nice if people (maintainers, at least) could begin to test
it. I've built ppc & i386 packages at my repository . There shouldn't
be issues this time, no soname bump, no name change.
I have a question about xfce4-goodies depending on
xfce4-xfapplets-plugin, which add a gnome dependency on xfce4-goodies.
It may become a problem for the xfce task which will soon be there (I've
spoken with stratus before the artwork meeting about that). Maybe we
should have a xfce4-goodies and a xfce4-goodies-full ? Or a
xfce4-goodies-light ? I don't really know.
xfce task should depend on xfce4, xfce4-goodies, thunar, xfce4-terminal,
mousepad, xfmedia, xarchiver, xfburn, ... Thoughts ?
It would be nice if rc1 was uploaded soon so it reaches testing before
rc2 is out. I really hope that 4.4 will be out before freeze, and I'll
contact release managers soon to talk with them about this.
Tonight was the debian-desktop artwork meeting. I advise people to
subscribe to debian-destop mailing list where summary will be posted,
but we agreed that we need a way to have a package wich would configure
default artwork (for us it means wallpaper and splash theme). Default
wallpaper is currently hardcoded in common/xfdesktop-common.h and splash
need hacking too, but I guess it's not too hard to do.
