Yes. Exactly this was my intention.
After GNOME 2.x 2.x+2 update, desktop often needs small
and some things may even disappear.
Imagine that you are using 2.x and you will get 2.x+2 overnight. Your
desktop is now different, needs some work to adjust it, and may be
less stable. And what is worse, there is no way
to undo this change.
That would be always a bug IMHO. How does a user do an update from
x.y to x.y+1 (or SLE) otherwise ?
That's a reason, why I would like to see
stable versions in form
GNOME2xx. When GNOME 2.x+2 appears, we can let 2.x repository
die in few weeks or months (i. e. stop updating
or rest forever, because some stupid app does not get ported :/
on this topic I already posted once on factory, but did not get an answer.
Maybe here coule be a better place?
