Wanted: Maintainer for xfce4-dict and Gigolo

I'd be happy if anyone would like to take over maintainership for my
little projects xfce4-dict and Gigolo.

The code of both projects is not as clean as I would like it to be,
especially when handing it over to somebody else but at least mostly it
works :).

I just don't manage to maintain those projects with the passion and time
they deserve (it took me more than three years for a single release :( ).

A bit more detailed:
xfce4-dict may could get a rewrite of the networking code to connect to
a dictd server by using the networking API in newer GLib versions.
Currently it is using the plain old C socket API.
Also, Liviu never gets tired to motivate me to integrate the
wordreference.com API :).

Gigolo is more or less feature complete, at least from my point of view.
There is an open request
(https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10079) to change the
application icon, I didn't make up my mind about this yet, a new
maintainer could choose this as her first action :).
There are still unreleased changes and improvements in GIT master which
are waiting to be shown to the wild!

Any volunteers?
