I really like to see LXDE in EPEL. I already wanted to have it in EL-5,
but it didn't work due to some outdated dependencies.

Note that lxdm and libfm (dep of pcmanfm) are missing in your list. And
what about the other packages that are part of LXDE but that I do not
own? (openbox, obconf, pcmanfm)

How can I orphan a branch that is not even in place?

Yes, I do have a concern: parcellite is no longer maintained, so I don't
want to see this in EPEL. For more info see

Same goes for xarchiver, although it is not dead officially.
