Hey Liviu,

I would generally not mind doing that. However...

I hardly have any time at the moment. I do have plans and
ideas to make catfish 0.4 totally nice. And I have even written some
code (not nearly good enough for a release, though). But the lion share
of my spare time hacking is going into Midori right now, since that
simply has a higher priority for me personally right now.

Yet if anyone wants to bring more life to Catfish again, and maybe at
the same time move it into Xfce, address me, tell me you want Catfish,
push me to it and I can take care of a repository, and add the project
to the bugtracker I'm using for Midori. And we can look into issues with
the current code. That is, if somebody looks into bugs, other than me, I
won't stop that person and look at patches. But I don't think I'll
invest much time hunting bugs myself.

Maybe that even motivates me, and makes me think about 0.4 again, but I
can't promise anything. ^_~
