13 I'm the one in the Xfce team that usually handles the stabilization so
14 let me know if there are any issues or you want help with something.
15 The next release (4.13 or 4.14) of Xfce stuff is going to be fully
16 migrated to gtk3. The current stuff needs both gtk2 and 3. If you want
17 you can hold off a while and then do only gtk3 so you dont have to do
18 gtk2.
20 sparc also needs ConsoleKit2 keyworded and stabilized together with xfce
21 when you get around to it.
