OK, I started on this today.
I grabbed the current libfm git tree and added six commits, one for each
patch in debian/patches of the Ubuntu libfm package.
I then verified the resulting tree still builds :)
Then, I created a project and git repo on gitorious.org so I can put
this somewhere in public for you to see.
If there is a better way for me to contribute to LXDE than this, let me
know. I can email patches, etc... whatever works for you.
I am also willing to join the LXDE development team and so be able to
commit directly to the git tree, if you want to trust me that much :)
As time allows (my availability varies quite a bit, work and other
commitments can make me very busy sometimes!) I expect to work on
getting some more of the LXDE patches from Ubuntu up into the git tree
(assuming you like these patches!).
Ideally we can then make a new LXDE release, and then get new LXDE
packages into Debian and synced into Ubuntu, all in plenty of time for
the Ubuntu (and Lubuntu) 11.10 Oneiric release.
