Yey, I feel special now. ^_^;
 About the BerliOS thing-- I might consider it if I were a better
programmer.. I don't really even have a clue what I could write other
than what we've done already with the sample. I do suppose I could pack
together a module of pre-configured sets together.. But I'm sure that
wouldn't be all that usefull. :P
 Oh, and additionally.. I really thing you could take that installer
frontend somewhere. :D Linux needs a non-console compiler.. And I think
that could be turned into such-- I'd even suggest now letting it use CVS
and tags to install individual selected modules from xfce AND
xfce-goodies. :o .. Or even more genericly, it could be used to manage
any remote cvs building. I can see it now-- A tree on the left shows
avalible modules from all of the cvs servers defined in a config file.
Then checkout-- and install each, with a prompt beforehand asking for a
prefix, and adding in an extra entry for any other config tags they
might want to throw in.
--end xfcvs4 idea.
 (Sorry, the idea sort of came from my debian days with SynAPTic. I
loved using that-- But this could be something generic that all distros
could use. :) )
