I am sorry for misunderstanding what Daniel Ruoso meant.

I desire a completed gnome2 in sarge as well.
But I don't think it's an accident -- just my own opinion:
I've searched some packages in  http://packages.debian.org/ ,  and found
that many packages involved still have too many bugs unfixed in sid, so
they can not enter sarge. most of these packages are still under
development,not delayed.  And the similar situation is happened in KDE3.
