Main reason I ask is that there are a few RC issues in the graphical

If the chance that 2.10 will _not_ make Etch is high, then we need to try
to find fixes for these issues in 2.8. If that chance is negligible, we
can concentrate on testing with the 2.10 libs.
I've just finished running cdebconf on my laptop with a set of debconf
test scripts, and below is a list of bugs, currently assigned to
cdebconf-gtk-udeb package, that affect GTKDFB 2.8.20/21 and no longer
affect gtkdfb 2.10.x
- #385026: display issues in checkbox lists (multiselect)
- Also, the vertical line that used to cut the Debian top banner is no
#340007: SELECT questions are not automatically scrolled to the active
seems to be gone, but a test with a real miniiso is needed to state it
This is roughly what i expected to achieve from the 2.8.x -> 2.10.x
GTKDFB library switch.
GTKDFB 2.10.4, when available, will provide us also an enhanched/cleaner
I'll make my best to make sure GTK 2.10.4 is released with a fully
functional DFB backend (e.g. : GTK 2.10.3 was released with a broken DFB
