La question du choix des couches est assez souvent
problématique : les couches jetables c'est super polluant, les
couches lavables ça utilise plein d'eau, les couches recyclables
ont sait pas les recycler.
Nous on vient d'avoir une idée géniale à breveter : il suffit
d'utiliser les pancakes ! Qui n'a jamais remarqué la capacité
d'absorption du sirop d'érable qu'ont les pancakes ? Il suffit de
coller un pancake ou deux dans une culotte et hop, plus de
problèmes de fuites !
Since the last post, few things did happen. Basically, it's
still not the right time for Debian users to upgrade to Xfce 4.8.
We eventually managed to upload the whole desktop part (except the
xfce metapackage) to experimental and we did upload some of the
goodies too. Licensing issues have been solved so the concerned
packages have been uploaded, and we're right now waiting on the
three packages sitting in NEW.
is really mandatory for Xfce 4.8 since it implements the menu
library, used by xfce4-panel, xfdesktop and xfce4-appfinder;
is needed if you want to keep the goodies not yet ported to the new
thunar gio-based API (right now that means squeeze, the archiver,
not the distribution);
is a replacement for thunar-thumbnailers, implementing a
standard thumbnailing interface, so it's possible to skip it for
So you'll need to be a little more patient and kindly wait for
our ftp-masters to process the (quite huge) NEW backlog. After that
we'll need a bit more time in experimental to test upgrade cases,
then we'll do an upload to unstable of the whole desktop part and
the whole goodies.
Upgrading to xfce4-panel 4.8 means *all* plugins need to be
rebuilt too, so that means a huge upgrade and a quite large
transition to handle for the release team, so we'll have to
schedule the unstable upload with them in order not to break all
their plans (yes, we try to be good Debian citizens)
So please be patient, but you'll see Xfce 4.8 in unstable in a
not too distant future. I'll put an update here when we'll need
brave volunteers willing to break their systems by doing upgrade
[UPDATE]: garcon, thunar-vfs and tumbler were just accepted into
experimental, thanks to our ftp-masters. Now we'll synchronize with
release team and upload to unstable when possible.
