Because I don't want to _support_ the latest and greatest GNOME on old
versions. A lot of the GNOME stack would require updating core system
stuff like gtk+ and glib2, and when you've done that you might as well
be running F11. I don't mind merging small patches from upstream to
fix specific bugs, but new code brings new bugs, and that's not
something a typical F10 user wants to cope with. In my opinion, if you
want newer functionality, you should just upgrade to F11.
