Xfce 4.4beta1 test repo (was Re: XFCE4.4)



Thought I would cross post this over here on the extras list as well,
as there might be some interested folks here.

Ok, by popular demand... I've got a repo setup for Xfce 4.4beta1. 

NOTE: This is a beta1 release. It could eat your data, blow up your
computer and drive off to vegas with your valuables. ;) 

A few other things to note: 

- I don't have a orage package ready yet. orage is the new
xfcalendar. 

- I don't have my mousepad package ready yet. Mousepad is a simple and
lightweight text editor that will be shipped with 4.4. 

- I don't have a thunar package ready yet. Thunar is the Xfce 4.4 file
manager, replacing xffm. 

The following packages that are in 4.2 are no longer in 4.4: 
xfce4-iconbox
xfce4-systray
xfce4-toys
xfce4-trigger-launcher
xffm

- I have only done minimal testing so far on things, so more testing
is welcome. I can also probibly make fc5 rpms if there is a demand. 

- Please send bug reports/patches to me. 

I will try and keep the repo up to date with betas moving forward. 

for your /etc/yum.repos.d/xfce44beta.repo
