SV: MATE 1.8 has now fully arrived in Debian
are there any reasons for the »strange« package description in mate-desktop-environment (and more)
The MATE Desktop Environment, a non-intuitive and unattractive desktop
for users, using traditional computing desktop metaphor.

Emne: MATE 1.8 has now fully arrived in Debian
Dato: tirsdag 3. juni 2014 13.38
the MATE Packaging Team is proud to announce that MATE 1.8
fully arrived in Debian.
The MATE desktop environment is a fork of what was formerly
the GNOME v2 desktop environment. The MATE upstream
performed a really good job in integrating the old GNOME
latest technologies like DConf an GSettings. The next
of MATE (which will be the 1.10 series) will also have GTK3
(if things go well!). During the last 6 months several
worked on the provisioning of MATE packages in Debian.
The initial workload has now been completed!!! \o/ PARTY!!!
I.e.: all MATE packages have been uploaded to Debian
unstable (and all
packages have successfully migrated to Debian testing
days back, the team provided uploads to wheezy-backports, so
to test MATE on Debian wheezy, if you like, as well.
@Testers: a basic MATE desktop gets installed via the meta
"mate-desktop-environment". A wider range of extra
gets pulled in via the meta package
@Testers2: We wait for your bug reports (and patches!)...
I personally want to take this email as an opportunity to
the people involved in the recent packaging work. It's
dangerous to name people, because those lists have the risk
incomplete, but still I want to mention a few people who
a lot with this pile of packages. Great appreciation to you
