There are a few things actively maintained in freedesktop-team, e.g. poppler,
fontconfig, geoclue, desktop-file-utils... (FSVO active, given some of these
only receive seldom updates upstream).

But I would be happy if these two were merged.

As for libepoxy, it could go in utopia-team, or even in xorg-team.
