I've added a conflicts/replaces to ensure upgrades happen correctly. I
don't think there is any distribution that ships both nautilus 2 and
nautilus 3 so that shouldn't be much of a problem.

I can't see anything in the Xfce repository and neither any activity in
the ITP (#572853). The package is also not hosted on mentors.debian.net
I've had a quick look at the source packages at
A few notes (thunarx-python_0.2.0-2~maverick.dsc):
- a build dependency on libthunarx-2-dev is missing
- the build dependency on python isn't needed (python-dev depends on
- the package is only built for the current python version, not all (or
is there a reason for that)
- a debian/compat file is missing
- a debian/source/format file is missing
- it seems to use deprecated cdbs rules (I personally prefer the dh
sequencer over cdbs though)
- the deb file ships .la files, see
- the standards version is old
- some libraries seem to be uselessly linked, consider passing
If you're willing to fix the issues you can probably upload the package
to the DPMT repository, see
http://wiki.debian.org/Teams/PythonModulesTeam I can have a look at it
and perhaps upload it but I must say I don't have much experience with
Python extensions and cannot make any guarantees on availability. But
perhaps the Xfce repository is a better place, I'm not sure.

Ubuntu from oneric (11.10) has gedit 3.2. Any packages from Debian
unstable will probably end up in precise.
