It'll likely be 2.6.0 + some patches from cvs since we're frozen by now.
Since the stable Gnome release series really seem pretty regression-safe
(well, at least that's my impression of how the Gnome project is
managed), would it be possible to get releases in the stable series as
updates for FC2 even if they don't make it into the original release?
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.)
