Works, I have it uploaded.

I'll also upload the other packages from your ITP today.

libgnomedb not?  We should wait with a release until 1.2 is out.

I don't know, these are the next on my list, but requires CUPS?  I'll
skip building them.

Alright, now we have duplicated: gail, gnome-keyring, gtk-engines,
libgsf, vte.

I'll do a nice spreadsheet with all packages so that this doesn't
happens on a regular basis.  You can add them to your list if you have
them ready, I have no READMEs written yet:-(

I have some minor problems, some XKB error, nautilus patch needs to be
integrated (scans floppy drive all the time), cannot open files or
launch applications from nautilus with double-click (missing
appliocations?), besides that it looks already great, though it is
slow at my old box.
