Re: debian gnome roadmap
I'd like to see a tutorial/howto on using pkg-gnome from Alioth. That
way we can do our own "back ports" and at the same time help the Debian
Gnome Team with our newly acquired wisdom.
What's needed is a simple 1 2 3 like:
1. svn foo from URL
2. go into foo and type bar in a terminal
3. get coffee
4. dpkg -i ../*.deb
A tutorial for the already initialized debian packager -- who might not be familiar with the ideas behind pkg-gnome.
(In case you say something, I have read the README many times with
different levels of debian packaging expertise and I still don't get
it... yes, i know i'm dumb).

I also want to know this. Is useless to try releasing gnome 2.11 if 2.12
is out already. 2.12 came out just a few days ago so 2.12 should be in
there like in 4 months. At least that's what 2.8 took.
Someone might have a more accurate date?
