[Pkg-xfce-devel] svn structure and 4.4 packaging

Hello all

I was reminded today that deleting packages from svn/trunk is not a good
idea :)
Even though all these days I have been commiting to trunk I did not combine
this with
the fact that those changes are meant for xfce 4.2.x packages in sid.

So I'd like to propose a change in the way the svn is structured, not
because I'm likely do repeat
today's feat but because it makes more sense IMHO.

-work on 4.2.x goes on on the branches named accordingly instead of trunk
-trunk is branched to make a branches/4.3
-trunk is changed only when those changes make sense for both lines of
development, and then
merged from trunk

4.4 packaging
for the April release of ubuntu I'd like to get at least parts of
4.4included (panel especially)
this means I'd like as much testing as possible before release so I'll make
4.3 packages from
the xfce4.3 daily snapshots
I think this would also make sense for debian experimental so if others are
interested too it would be
nice to have this in your svn as well
The preferred method of ubuntu packaging is using as much from debian and
work with debian if possible
to avoid too many gratuitous differences, and uploads to experimental would
be fine with me to sync from

what do you say?
