Current gtk-xfce-engine package only has GTK+ 2 themes. We already have GTK+ 3 XFCE components in the repository, like xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin, xfce4-power-manager, xfce4-terminal, mousepad, and so on. This results in inconsistent theming between GTK+ 2 and GTK+ 3 programs.

gtk-xfce-engine 3.x.x can be configured to install both theme types with --enable-gtk3 AFAIK.

Looking at git log, 2.99.0-2 had split packages for GTK+ 2/GTK+ 3 themes. Then it was downgraded to 2.10.0, the split packages were unified and GTK+ 3 themes dropped...

At this point, with XFCE 4.14 fully GTK+ 3 approaching, we should be shipping GTK+ 3 themes, no?
This task depends upon

gtk-xfce-engine is unmaintained upstream. The gtk3 themes are marked as "doesn't work with gtk 3.4", so there's no use even trying to package this.

Thanks for the information. I think we need to wait for XFCE 4.14 then.
