I'm interested in xfce4-mixer since I like working with multimedia 
hardware interfaces/libraries and I also like programming with the "G" 
libraries (including GStreamer).

To be honest though, I have no idea how much work is involved in 
maintaining it and I fear I might not have enough time to do so 
properly.  Can you elaborate on the type and quantity of work you spend 
(or feel should be spent) in maintaining it besides the tasks you 
mentioned needed attention?
