Ok. Let's finally do something for xfce.org. I'm ready to work with
other people on a new main website.

- drupal or mambo based, I don't care, as long as it can be easily
  updated by all developers
- I think we should drop multi-language support

What's the state of directory.xfce.org? Shouldn't we integrate
directory/goodies/main website in a single entity? One website for all
the code available in the xfce svn repository?

What Auke did for lunar-linux.org is the example to follow.
Too many resources hides the information.
