[Pkg-xfce-devel] xfce4 in ubuntu

It says
 xffm (1: unstable; urgency=low

  * Raise version to keep APT happy.

Well for debian it is not necessary at all, but since ubuntu has the
epoch it means it will forever be 'newer' than debian's version. I
agree it's ugly and I wish there was a more elegant solution.

I agree xfce4-terminal is a better name.Then if we chose to make an
xterminal dummy package it will only be in ubuntu.

Right now our changes include new dependencies which mostly reflect
the modularisation of X.org packages. Do your packages assume x.org or
are they supposed to work with xfree86 too?
