Binary package hint: xfce4-utils

When opening the xfce about dialog from menu, one cannot see which version of Xubuntu/Ubuntu the computer is running. There are only informations about the current maintainers of Xfce packages.

I have never fixed a bug before. But i know what we must do for this. Open /usr/share/xfce4/Ubuntu and edit the file there. How do i fix this?

I posted a patch for it. Try it out and tell me if my very first bugfix is
acceptable or what I should have done

Perhaps the best solution would be to have this added dynamically (like Gnome System Monitor does)? If it has to be updated every release then it probably doesn't get done :)

In Hardy, it also displays information about Xubuntu (but not the version

I'm not sure this needs to be done. The System > About GNOME in Ubuntu doesn't show ubuntu version either. Anyway, hard coding the release name isn't the way to go
