hmm, sorry for stepping on your toes, I'm being very impatient at the moment. I figured it was a safe upload since it requires users to expressly allow it's installation (hey, it doesn't even show up in mintUpdate) I'll e-mail clem, as I don't see why he wouldn't agree to partitioning any future gnome-only into a separate mintupload-gnome package, like with the some of the other mintTools. That way it's the best of both worlds, everyone gets the latest "core" version immediately, and you can still add any xfce-specific additions to mintupload-xfce, like mintupload-kde does. Again, sorry for going over your head, putting it straight into the repo.
Also, kinkerl raised a question regarding installing mintUpload from a base ubuntu install, which suggests a similar question about the xfce version. Anyone who installs mintUpload in this way will not get the thunar right-click integration, which is provided by the thunar-custom-actions-xfce. Now there's a couple of potential solutions to this:
1) affects only mintupload-xfce: add thunar-custom-actions-xfce as a dependency of some kind (suggests?). However this creates circular dependencies, so I don't know if that would break anything.
2) affects mintupload-xfce, thunar-custom-actions-xfce: move the "Upload" action to mintupload-xfce package. This is the neater solution, as it's more closely tied to mintUpload than to thunar and I don't see any other mintTool actions in thunar...xfce and would also allow other xfce users to install mint's custom actions without requiring them to install mintUpload too.
