Question for everyone, would it be useful on the
https://wiki.xfce.org/people page to list who maintains/has push
rights to which components? This way people know who to poke for
patches and which individual components/plugins/applications need a
maintainer. This is related to the *adopting an orphaned app* (TODO
link) already on the page.
