Oh well. Do you imagine that, by emailing xubuntu-devel, I would just being given an account so I could upload my deb files? You're over-optimistic.

Well, building xfce4-xkb-plugin took no time on my Mint XFCE installation (now broken, but not because of the plugin).

The devs? Some users and report back to the devs?

Oh, don't start again! This is the Xfce mantra: "Goodies are not ours, we don't know who's writing them, and we failed to notice they're on our server!"

Xfce without Goodies WOULD BE UNUSABLE (sorry for shouting, but I wanted to emphasize a truth). 

FYI, Mandriva packages each and every Goodie and puts it on the unofficial XFCE spin One CD.

Maybe I should post on the xubuntu-devel list, but asking them to be proud of Xubuntu and to emphasize on usability by accepting to care about some Goodies might open a war, and I am tired of flame wars: I simply cannot state a simple truth or ask for a simple thing, anywhere, without being accused of this or that.

I fell I'll regret for having joined this list too. Or maybe not this list, but on xubuntu-devel they would simply kill me :-(
