Hi RT,

I know you're all quite busy, but that won't get better as freeze comes
closer. Right now, we won't have an upgrade path for xfce4-panel and
plugins between Wheezy and Wheezy+1: for partial upgrades there's a
window where panel might already be updated to 4.10+ while plugins are
still at 4.8, and it'll break at runtime unless we force (4.8) plugins
to be upgraded at the same time as the (4.8) panel.

If it's a bit painful to schedule the binNMUs I can do the xfce4-panel
upload and then do a sourceful upload of each and every panel plugin but
that looks too much like an uncoordinated transition and that doesn't
look desirable. 

Maybe the change is small enough that it could be done post-freeze along
with all the binNMUs, but then I wouldn't be against some kind of
confirmation of that.

So, TL;DR: what can I do to help, and could I have a small bit of update
so I have an idea what to do for the upgrade path?
