I am disowning the Shimmer Project packages. luolimao will be adopting them.

Here is the complete list of Shimmer Project packages:

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/elementary-xfce-icons/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/shimmer-wallpapers/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/xfce-theme-albatross/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/xfce-theme-blackbird/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/xfce-theme-bluebird/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/xfce-theme-greybird/

If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask. But at this point, others probably know more than I do, since I haven't touched Arch Linux in a long time.

I used to be a distro enthusiast, using 5 or more distros at once, constantly playing with them, learning new tricks, and having fun.

But as time passed, I need my computers to just get stuff done. I don't have as much time (or motivation) to keep maintaining a rolling release or playing around with distros.

It's too much hassle without much benefit for me.

In fact, I just tried updating my Arch system tonight, and it was hell. I mean, it's not even funny. I fixed one thing after the other, getting closer to achieving an updated system using the proper config files, but everytime I bump into a new hurdle. The forums show people with similar problems. I just gave up. I would have to start from scratch again, but I don't feel like it.

I have decided to disown the Shimmer Project packages, but I need to know who will adopt them? The PKGBUILDs are laid out in an organized manner with a lot of comments (hopefully this is helpful.) The only requirement I ask is that the new maintainer does not follow the git master branch. These should remain stable releases (e.g, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, et al.) If you wish, you can make -git versions of each package.

Let me know, guys.

@Jristz

The reason they're located in "/usr/share/backgrounds/" is because non-Xfce users can also use these wallpapers. To have Xfce automatically include them in its Xfce Settings is as simple as providing a symlink to the wallpapers. This way, any desktop environment can use the wallpapers seamlessly; not just Xfce.

you can move the wallpaper to /usr/share/backgound/xfce becaue now xfce only read from these directory adn the old /ur7share/background,backdrops has ben deprecated and no more read from there

The Shimmer Project wallpapers now sit in their own separate package.

The wallpapers include:

* Albatross wallpaper
* Bluebird wallpaper
* Greybird wallpaper

Upon installing this package, the wallpapers will automatically be loaded in the Xfce Desktop Settings wallpapers list.

This package is an optdepends for the Shimmer Project Xfce themes that have a matching wallpaper. These themes are:
* xfce-theme-albatross
* xfce-theme-bluebird
* xfce-theme-greybird

Here is a list of Shimmer Project packages on the AUR; all Xfce-related:
* elementary-xfce-icons
* shimmer-wallpapers
* xfce-theme-albatross
* xfce-theme-blackbird
* xfce-theme-bluebird
* xfce-theme-greybird
