[Pkg-xfce-devel] Status of xfce4-goodies?

Hi all,
Guess the question posted by Dave
was probably badly written.

I guess his question (and also my question is) is there a chance we
would see xfce4-goodies in 4.10.1 or further ?

The xfce4-goodies metapackage had lots of goodies most of which are
gone if you are using the 4.10 release.

As can be seen it was there only till 4.8 version :-

$ apt-show-versions -a xfce4-goodies
Not installed
xfce4-goodies stable   ftp.debian.org
xfce4-goodies 4.8.2   wheezy   ftp.debian.org
xfce4-goodies 4.8.2   unstable ftp.debian.org
No experimental version
xfce4-goodies not installed

Now I know some of the goodies are coming as one package at a time as
can be seen https://mail.xfce.org/mailman/listinfo/xfce-announce

If at sometime we could have also xfce4-goodies metapackage which is
of version 4.10 it would be convenient to all the users.

Till l8er.
