gimp(-devel) takes time to compile even on my fast machine. For that
reason, it should remain in a repo. I'm willing to continue maintain it
(unless someone else is more interested). The devel 2.5 branch was
released a few days ago so the gimp-devel package will switch to that
instead of following the stable branch like it did since 2.4 is out..

fvwm 2.4 is still active. Latest release was last December. Developement
is slow on both branches. I've been using fvwm-devel for years and it's
rock stable. I believe most fvwm users use the devel version. Possibly we
could update the fvwm package to the 2.5 branch. A similar thing was done
for fluxbox a couple of years ago.
