Anyone is free to update my fluxbox and imagemagick packages as I want to 
focus on the cleanup.

Don't update my eric and gimp-devel packages. Latest eric  depends on qt4 
and gimp-devel is just flagged because gimp stable 2.4 has been released.

You can update James packages as he's inactive. Seems that conky has be 
updated to work with latest kernel (there's a bug report). It works here 
after changing my .conkyrc though.
