RE: gnome-orca version policy?


I have another distro with orc master branch and I find it to be pretty
stable.  How this would work for Debian but I think that trying to keep it
updated as much as possible would be a good idea.

Agreed, AIUI, Orca is not so tied to gnome releases: newer Orca should be
working fine with older Gnome.  It's then more a question whether Orca
non-even releases are usually less stable than even releases.  Do people
have an opinion on this?  We can also upload non-even versions to
experimental and keep even versions in unstable.
