I know at least 2 people in the packagers group who use xfce. So if they
have no knowledge for maintaining rpms ( and a dm doesn't require more
knowledge than anything else ), that would be shocking.
Anyway, if a major DE is unmaintained, maybe we should start to think
removing it until there is enough volunteer, since we do not want to
have a popular application to be crappy due to lack of maintainer. This
would be lying to user, and giving them false expectations.
