being proposed and discussed [1].

To compile GNOME 3.9.1, you can use the jhbuild [2] modulesets [3]

TARBALLS DUE: GNOME 3.8.1

Hello all,

We hope you all got nice release parties for GNOME 3.8, and already
started dreaming and working on 3.9, but now is time to get back a bit
on 3.8 and check that the latest fixes got in, to make for a first
update, and offer our users a nice dose of corrections and
translations.

Tarballs are due on 2013-04-15 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.8.1
newstable release, which will be delivered on Wednesday. Modules which
were proposed for inclusion should try to follow the unstable schedule
so everyone can test them.  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 3.8.1. 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 3.9, the full schedule, the official
module lists and the proposed module lists, please see our colorful
3.9 page:
   http://www.gnome.org/start/unstable

For a quick overview of the GNOME schedule, please see:

Cheers,

LDAP Groups not being synchronized correctly

Hi,

the SSSD daemons (the one responsible for getting all the relevant details from LDAP and setting up user/groups accordingly on all the GNOME machines) were restarted due to some changes on their configuration files. 

SSSD has an internal cache and right after the restart some user/groups entries were purged and the real problem popped up. For some reason the client isn't able to query the groups field on our LDAP server correctly, and that's blocking git pushes.

I'll keep debugging what's going on and keep you informed as soon as everything is back to normality.

Thanks for your patience,

GNOME 3.8 released

                 GNOME 3.8 Released
                 ==================

Today, the GNOME Project celebrates the release of GNOME 3.8, the
latest version of the popular free desktop, as well as the GNOME
developer platform.

GNOME 3.8 is the fourth major update of GNOME 3. It builds on the
foundations that we have laid with the previous 3.x releases and
offers a greatly enhanced experience. The exciting new features and
improvements in this release include a integrated application search,
privacy and sharing settings, notification filtering, a new classic
mode, OwnCloud integration, previews of clocks, notes, photos and
weather applications, and many more.

For more information about the major changes in GNOME 3.8, please
visit our release notes:

 http://library.gnome.org/misc/release-notes/3.8/

GNOME 3.8 will be available shortly in many distributions. Live images
of GNOME 3.8 are currently being prepared and will appear soon at:

 http://www.gnome.org/getting-gnome/

This six months effort wouldn't have been possible without the whole
GNOME community, made of contributors and friends from all around the
world: developers, designers, documentation writers, usability and
accessibility specialists, translators, maintainers, system
administrators, companies, artists, testers and last, not least,
users. GNOME would not exist without all those people.

Thanks very much to every one of them!

Our next release, GNOME 3.10, is planned for September 2013.

Until then, enjoy GNOME 3.8 !

encourage to join us. Fixes for any bugs found at the Test Day will land in
upstream GNOME for the benefit of all distributions.

TARBALLS DUE: GNOME 3.7.92 release candidate + HARD CODE FREEZE

Hello all,

That was fast, we are already reaching 3.7.92, you get to roll
tarballs on Monday, try not to be late. Also that will be the last
chance to get your fixes in, after that: hard code freeze, e.g. you
will have to require a big bunch of approvals to get changes in.

Let's repeat:

Tarballs are due on 2013-03-18 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.7.92
rc release, which will be delivered on Wednesday. Modules which were
proposed for inclusion should try to follow the unstable schedule so
everyone can test them.  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 3.7.92. 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!

We will be entering the hard code freeze: this is a late freeze to
avoids sudden last-minute accidents which could risk the stability
that should have been reached at this point.  No source code changes
are allowed without approval from the release team, but translation
and documentation should continue. Simple build fixes are, of course,
allowed without asking.

For more information about 3.7, the full schedule, the official
module lists and the proposed module lists, please see our colorful 3.7
page:

Propose new features for GNOME 3.10!

GNOME developers and maintainers!

The release team asks you to come up and discuss new platform-wide
features to be added for GNOME 3.10 (in September 2013)!

Tell us your plans for the next six months here:

      https://live.gnome.org/ThreePointNine/Features

Proposed features must have an assignee working on them.
The proposal period is planned to end in about a month.

Feature proposals are about the core desktop, hence this does not affect
features on a per-module basis. Still we *highly* encourage you to
communicate your plans for your projects early. 
In case of doubt: Better announce too much than not enough!
Take two minutes and add your plans here:

      https://live.gnome.org/RoadMap#GNOME_3.10

Thanks a lot for your help!
