Hi Simon,

Being the maintainer that parented the xfce4-goodies Debian packages I
feel somewhat responsible for the current state that they're in. I only
have so much time free to work on them since I switched over to working
with the Debian-GNOME team, but since a freeze is "coming soon (TM)", I
would be willing to help co-maintain them and get them back on the road

Apart from time constraints, I've been reluctant to update xfce4-goodies
again since I don't have XFce 4.2 libraries to build against.

One thing that would get the ball moving again would be to check
everything into a svn.debian.org tree so that almost anyone can chip in
(just like in pkg-gnome).
