libmatchbox should be in the X11 category, not in devel. Or at least

Is it really necessary to make individual packages? All packages seem
to be rather small, and closely tied to eachother. Furthermore, your
packages don't seem to register mutual dependencies. I'd assume that
matchbox-panel-manager depends on matchbox-panel, but it doesn't.

Unfortunately, I'm not able to actually test these packages - I'm
