although package Docky was lot of work for me (licensing patching etc) I
am no longer using it and last two releases were very unstable. There
are couple of bugzillas reported mainly because of gconf migration.
Docky is an advanced shortcut bar that sits at the edges of your screen.
It provides easy access to some of the files, folders and applications
on your computer, displays which applications are currently running,
holds windows in their minimized state and more.
Docky is written in mono.
Please ping me if you are interested to maintain the package.
