I forgot to mention the website! There are two things that would be very 
good to have for 4.2.0:

  a) all website translations should be up-to-date
     Please send a mail to Francois Le Clainche if you
     want to help in translating the website.

  b) Screenshots from both developers and users
     This is very important, as screenshots are the first
     thing many new users look at, when a new version of
     a desktop environment is released.
     So, please send your Xfce 4.2 screenshots to Francois
     Le Clainche - please don't send 4.0 screenshots, as
     thats not really helpful now. ;-)

In case you need some motivation: Your name will be listed on the 
Credits page if you help us. ;-)

I think it would be good to have the `offline' version of the website 
mostly ready by 2005/01/15, so only minor fixes and updates needs to be 
done on D-Day.


PS: Francois, please send a short mail if there's anything else, where 
others can help you (concerning the website).
