We can keep things in trunk like it is now, but  make this not the default
work/uploading branch.
So what is now done in trunk _and_ part of xfce (not gooodies, exo, thunar)
move over to branches/4.2.3 and do the uploads from there until 4.2.4 and so

Make a new branches/4.3 (or 4.3.2 it wasn't any official version AFAIK) and
start working there
in preparation for when 4.4 beta or RC is released. I am willing to do this
work. So when they release
there is little left to do packaging-wise for uploading to

*BUT* what should we do with the goodies?

We don't have to reorganize everything, just make the current situation a
better for 4.3 work. Orage/thunar seem to work with 4.2 and 4.4 so they are
ok in trunk IMHO.

I don't know anything about planned upstream release dates.
