Matthew, are we really stabilising maintainer-needed packages again? Please consider adding yourself as maintainer to LXDE then.

> are we really stabilising maintainer-needed packages again? This isn't something I do often. From a search, it looks like I've only ever filed a stablereq for two other m-n packages and they were both for EAPI-6 cleanup. https://bugs.gentoo.org/buglist.cgi?component=Stabilization&email1=maintainer-needed%40gentoo.org&email2=matthew%40gentoo.org&emailassigned_to1=1&emailreporter2=1&emailtype1=equals&emailtype2=equals To be honest, I don't remember why I wanted to stabilise this package but I can assure you that I did not just roll a dice to pick a package with the aim of wasting the AT's time... But yes, I see the issue with having zombie packages like this so I'll either refrain from poking at them or will adopt them in the future :)

They only remain in tree because for some reason I bothered to fix, bump and switch them to GTK3, see bug 769524, even if I don't use them myself (and for that reason did not make myself maintainer), dropping them back to ~arch in order to make no false promise.
