I agree

LXDE doesn't have much updates upstream, so isn't unmaintained at all
(by me I mean),  there are many upstream bugs for more than a year
that aren't fixed yet.

But yest, it's a huge candidate to [community] too, I don't know if
somebody wanna maintain it on it, I could handle it as I've been
doing, but I'd like to have it in [community] in case of some
encouraged TU want to help me, it's welcome to me.

So +1 for me to move LXDE to [community] too
