Thanks for the reply  Christoph.
Once many moons ago I replied to a request for help on this list and
helped a fellow Xfce user.
It felt good to have contributed in some small way to the Xfce project.
I guess that's what defines a community ....
Each year I contribute to a open source project, last year was MEPIS.
I believe this year it will be Xfce that gets a contribution.

This is for that small group of Xfce developers: Your efforts are appreciated.
