awesome.  i'm going to put them up on 
http://xfce.org/~kelnos/mirrors/xfce-goodies/.  no subdirs, just 
everything in that directory.  berlios seems to be up for now, so i'll 
start putting them up.  i'll attempt to keep up-to-date with new 
releases of the various plugins, but i'm bound to miss some.  for plugin 
authors, it would be helpful if you could drop me an email 
(kelnos at xfce.org) if you release a new version.

i'm only going to keep the latest versions (with the exception of 
weather plugin, i'll keep 0.2.0 and 0.3.0 since 0.3.0 seems to cause 
crashes for a lot of people, myself included... and i just like 0.2.0 
better).  package maintainers: please do not list this as the primary 
site.  only list as a fallback if berlios fails.  and, if there are 
other mirrors, preferably behind those as well.

ok, all done.  enjoy ^_^.  i haven't verified these files, so if you 
have a known-good md5sum, it would probably be a good idea to check them 
and let me know if there are any discrepancies.  they should be fine,
