You're right, but (for what concerns me) I am a bit busy with real life
in these days.

I am.

WNPP bugs for some of the -goodies need to be retitled from O: to ITP:.

I found the time to check -battery-plugin and -clipman-plugin, and I 
must admit that they're not in a good shape (ITP bugs not closed in the
changelog, bugs marked as fixed are actually still reproducible, lintian
is not happy)...

I don't want to be rude, but I am wondering if Rudy is the right person
for these 13 packages, considering that he's got 9 packages in main 
Rudy, have you really got the time to maintain all the -goodies 

Why is the Debian Xfce Packages Alioth project dead? [0]
IMHO putting these packages under collaborative maintenance would be a
better idea.
