I guess it would be a nice moment to put a bounty on those bugs that are 
vital to solve but are nasty and/or time consuming.
Some sites and blogs out there are talking about Xfce 4.12, so it's a 
great opportunity to attract new collaborators by making the Xfce's 
bountysource page more visible. Maybe a note on Xfce main site should 
suffice for now.
