No problem, hehe.

Well, perhaps I can implement binary installation until 4.4 so that we
can offer binary packages for different Linux distributions via
InstallIt. Anyway, this depends on the release date of 4.4. And we
should not forget that goodies (which are shipped as source tarballs
most times) still are the most important thing (regarding Xfce) which
InstallIt will have to manage. Remember that a goodies manager was the
starting point once?

Something like a timeline/roadmap would be a great orientation for all
developers, at least for me.
