Yeah, after evo/eds, we probably should do the rest together in one go.
There is still some unsorted stuff though, like most of the
NetworkManager integration patches (to support user session connections
or make NM optional on !Linux) have been dropped in experimental.
Someone needs to work on those patches before we can move gnome-shell
and g-c-c to unstable.
Also, the situation around systemd is not fully sorted yet.
First, we need a newer systemd version, which is currently in
experimental only (also waiting for a transition slot [1]), and then
there is the problem, that working power management requires systemd to
be PID 1. That's going to cause problems which we haven't addressed yet.

So, you see, it's not like we are sitting on our lazy asses, it's just a
lot of work and coordination efforts.
