Ok, for Xfce Core we have all packages at rc2 (188.8.131.52) in Etch except:
orage (184.108.40.206 (rc1) Etch, 220.127.116.11 (rc2) unstable, missing 5 days)
thunar (0.4.0rc1-2 Etch, 0.5.0rc2-1 unstable, missing 5 days)
xfce4-session (rc1 Etch, rc2 unstable, missing 10 days)
xfce4-terminal (0.2.5.6rc1 Etch, 0.2.5.8rc2 unstable, missing 5 days)
xfdesktop4 (rc1 Etch, rc2 not uploaded to unstable)
xfprint4 (rc1 Etch, rc2 not uploaded to unstable)
xfce4 and xfce4-goodies rc2 metapackages have not been uploaded
xfce4-dev-tool rc2 has not been uploaded to unstable (packages useful
for building Xfce svn, not really useful for users)
There are goodies too which could have been in Etch but won't but, I
guess it's not *that* bad. Except that xfce4-datetime-plugin is RC
because of FTBFS (it's only in unstable and can't migrate to testing,
but we have a new version which would fix this. Not in Etch, I guess).

Ok, thanks. I'll do that.
