[FINISHED] xfce-utils 4.10 Roadmap

We want to get rid of this package. It contains no code that cannot be moved to another package or is still required for the desktop environment.

  • doc/ → http://docs.xfce.org website.
  • scripts/{startxfce4,xinitrc.in,xflock4}.in → xfce4-session
  • scripts/{xfbrowser4,xfterm,xfmountdev}.in → remove
  • scripts/xfhelp4.desktop.in → xfce4-docs
  • xfce.desktop.in → xfce4-session (see also usability topic in main roadmap page for 2nd desktop file)
  • scripts/xfconf* → remove
  • scripts/Xft.xrdb → not sure if it is still usable, but can be moved to xfce4-settings or xfce4-session.
  • xfce4-about/ → move to libxfce4ui (library already depends on Gtk+ and required by any Xfce component, so we always get credits ;-).
  • xfrun/ → new appfinder will have this functionality.

Also remove xfce-utils from xfce4-about dialog.
