Re: Gnome 2.6.1 and FC2



Oh while building gnome 2.6.1 packages (for my own use really, process is easy enough, update .spec and download new .tar.bz2's) i noticed that the current fedora gnome 2.6.0 already has a lot of patches downported from 2.6.1 (and a few of the 2.6.1 patches actually come from fedora development)

The difference between 'fedora gnome 2.6.0' and 'gnome 2.6.1' isnt as big as you would/might think.

If the answer is "no", is it because of perceived destabilization or
because it takes time from new development? If it is the latter, would
it be possible for volunteer-packaged updates to be considered for
inclusion as official updates? (I believe that the FC2 Gnome is very
close to upstream, so it's likely that very little patch updating etc
would have to be done - is that a correct assumption? I can see that for
heavily patched packages would be more difficult for someone who is not
the original packager to package a sane update.)


I think it's a bad idea to go down that road. Whole new Fedora Core releases
are planned to be quite frequent; within each one, the packages should be as
stable as possible.



I think that people who want 2.6.1 can make the packages and put them in fedora.us for cooking.
