Debian Gnome packages available at ftp.gnome.org

Have a look in ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/debian.
This is a repository of Gnome debian packages. 
It is just a convenience for debian users as the same
packages are already available for download from
ftp.debian.org and mirrors: this way they may update
only the packages required to run gnome, without
upgrading to the whole unstable distribution.

If time permits there will be also a repository for
snapshots compiled directly from the cvs.

All you need to do is install the apt package and add
the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/debian dists/released/

and then use the dselect method or the command-line
interface, ie:

apt-get install gnome-panel gnome-session ...

For any questions or problems with this repository mail to:
