It's probably about the right time to start looking into that, so...
sure, feel free.  If you do, please advise them that we're not ready
for the -current (12.1) submissions, but that now is a good time to
be testing and/or updating them.

That being said, I've handled glibmm, cairomm, and gtkmm here (as I
needed them for something else), and also synaptics.  There are a few
things we'll need to remove from the repo (fuse, ntfs-3g, pygtk, and
so on), and there's the perl changes to consider.  Other than those
things, all of the stuff in the 12.0 repo should transition over to
12.1 with very little difficulty.
