GNOME 2.91.3

GNOME 2.91.3 Development Release

This is an early development snapshot, things might be a little rough,
but overall things should start to look a lot more like GNOME 3.

Note that this release has a changed moduleset lineup and the suite
organization. This reorganization is not finished yet; expect further
changes in the next snapshots.

To compile GNOME 2.91.3, you can the jhbuild [1] modulesets [2]
(which use the exact tarball versions from the official release):


Due to the reorganization, there are no diffs to the previous release
this time, sorry.

Re: Crossdesktop at FOSDEM: call for papers

Hi everyone,

Just a reminder that the deadline is coming in less than 10 days (22nd
of December).
This year, GNOME won't have its own devroom for a day as the previous
years, but the crossdesktop devroom will run for two days. So if you
were planning to give a talk in the GNOME devroom, you'll have to
apply for one in the crossdesktop devroom instead.

TARBALLS DUE: GNOME 2.91.4 Development Release


Before we all leave for holidays, let's prepare a good GNOME 3.0
development release that people will be able to enjoy as a gift for the
end of the year :-)

Tarballs are due on Monday December 20th before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME
2.91.4 Development Release, which will be delivered on Wednesday.

Please make sure that your tarballs will be uploaded before Monday
23:59 UTC: tarballs uploaded later than that will probably be too late
to get in 2.91.4. If you are not able to make a tarball before this
deadline or if you think you'll be late, please send a mail to the
release team and we'll find someone to roll the tarball for you!

For more information about 2.91, the full schedule, the official
module lists and the proposed module lists, please see our colorful 2.91
