Users may have noticed that the xfce-svn packages formerly maintained by Shadowhand in the Unstable repo have not been updated since he resigned an an Arch developer. The principal reason for this is that no other member of the team has the time to adopt them.
The preferred solution is, of course, to have them maintained somewhere, and we are grateful to wizzomafizzo for offering to look after them in the Community repo.
If you wish to continue (or to start) using xfce-svn, please ensure that the Community repo is enabled in /etc/pacman.conf.
The outdated packages have now been removed from Unstable.
