As the maintainer of the the Xfce Live CD as well as a member of the 
SIG, I can vouch for that. Xfce is a pretty well "supported" desktop in 
Fedora in as much as any desktop is. The maintainers take care of bugs 
quickly, new releases gets pulled in fast etc. We don't have as many 
people working on it but it is a smaller community upstream as well.

One thing, we try not to do, is deviate from upstream and apply many 
patches like some of the other Xfce based spin-off's do which is a 
general Fedora policy as well and not something specific to the Xfce team.
