You know that this is nearly impossible. To build the complete GNOME
2.6.{0,1}, you need root access to a chroot, as you have to install most
packages after you've built them 'cause they're in the build-deps of
other packages.

BTW: Packages for SPARC are available at http://people.debian.org/~phython/.

I'd like to hear some more reasons for this sort of roadmap. ATM, we
can't release sarge anyway (as you've announced yourself). GNOME 2.4 is
stable and isn't developed upstream anymore, so we even don't need to
update the packages in testing. Where is the problem in actually doing
stuff in unstable? Since when is unstable not supposed to break?
