After a trial run involving a COPR repo [1], I had written earlier
indicating that I started doing real builds of Xfce 4.12 packages for
EL-7 [2]. This is now complete and I have now submitted a update - a
mega update containing 53 packages total.


Three points about the update -

- libxfce4ui obsoletes libxfcegui4
	(plugins using libxfcegui4 were never built for EL-7)

- xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin obsoletes xfce4-mixer and xfce4-volumed
	(xfce4-volumed is not even in the repos)

- xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin uses pavucontrol as sound mixer which is
unavailable in EL-7 at the moment.

I have tested both upgrading a user configured Xfce 4.10 install and by
creating a new user. I did not notice any issues so far.

Please enable epel-testing repo on a test machine, test these packages
and give karma on bodhi. I have set the stable karma to 12. Unless the
karma reaches 12, I intend to leave the update in testing for **three
