Package: xfce4
Version: 4.10.0
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,
I have tried to install the xfce4 metapackage for 4.10 from experimental,
using sudo apt-get -t experimental install xfce4
and I always get the error message:
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 xfce4 : Depends: xfce4-mixer (>= 4.8.0) but it is not going to be installed
         Depends: orage (>= 4.8.0) but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

I know that I can install the individual packages separately, but it appears
that the metapackage xfce4 in experimental is broken for those two missing
depends (orage and xfce40mixer).
Thank you for all your work.
