If you guys want to do the extra work, I guess that's fine.

Actually, someone asked me the other day what I thought Debian would be up
to by the time sarge was ready for release. Not knowing a hell of a lot
about the sarge process, I assumed that having GNOME 2.0.x would be a worthy
enough goal...

But then, GNOME 2.2.0 will be coming out in late January (if I have anything
to do with it, cue sound effects of whips cracking and the like).  That's
probably pre-sarge, right? [1]

So perhaps when your 2.0.x stuff has stabilised (perhaps base/freeze it on
2.0.3, which is coming out this week), it will be time to start trialling
2.1.x in experimental or something like that. Then you'll be on top of
things for the 2.2 release.

Anyway, this is just me big-picture-musing from the cheap seats, feel free
to ignore it. :-)
