I'm just talking to Johannes on IRC. We discussed some basic stuff and
ended up thinking that we would make up a good team for working on the
"goodies manager" (we're both German and our knowledge appears to be
almost on the same level).

If anybody dislikes the project in general or doesn't want us as
developers, please raise your hand!

We are a little unsure who is responsible for setting up the project and
where to put it (goodies, official Xfce SVN repository or somewhere
else) so any hint/opinion concerning this would be of great help.

Thanks and take care,
