Ok, right. But he shouldn't replace the nautilus 1.0 in unstable with
nautilus2 yet. So I think it makes sense to put nautilus 2.0 in
experimental without the 2 suffix.

Well, since nothing useful has come from -ctte, we should just ignore
them and finish the s/2// transition, then get a rough working version
of the transition scripts, and then upload to unstable. After that we
should try to get the whole mass into testing at once.

Ok, I will do that too. Do you want to split up the work? I can handle
the gnome-panel transition scripts if you like.

Huh? I don't see how that's relevant. What we want is a way to test
whether this is the user's first time running GNOME 2. I thought about
this a bit more, and I realized that since gnome-terminal 2.0 is already
in unstable, users will already have a ~/.gnome2 directory. I think
testing for ~/.gnome2/panel2.d should be sufficient.
