I appreciate all the time and effort you put in maintaining the layers
you care about.

If I branch for sumo now, it wont be built anymore in the world builds
so we wait until core stops changing.  meta-or always lags in the
branching from core.

pending as in submitted to be included in master or are you waiting for
merges to meta-openembedded core before sending more.  Our builds are
about 3 day's long and if it bares, they get restarted and that adds to
delays when thing get merged.

That would be a shame but if you are sure, you can send patches to
remove yourself as maintainer of meta-xfce.
