prepare for GNOME 2 transition: this Sunday


This is a heads-up to people who run GNOME 1.4 in sid.  The GNOME 2
Desktop will be uploaded to unstable this Sunday, and it will replace
the GNOME 1.4 Desktop.  

Christian Marillat and I have written transition scripts, and they have
been tested by us on some .gnome directories, but no one else I'm aware
of has tested them yet.  So if you haven't helped us out by testing them
already, then you will be forced to anyways this Sunday :) 

Quick FAQ: 

Q: How can I help test the scripts? 
A: See http://people.debian.org/~walters/gnome2.html

Q: Does this mean my GNOME 1.4 applications like Evolution will stop
A: No, they will continue to work. 

Q: If I just only run parts of the GNOME 2 desktop, like the
gnome-panel, will my settings be transitioned? 
A: No, you must run gnome-session. 

Q: Where can I report bugs and help out with stuff? 
A: debian-gtk-gnome@lists.debian.org
