updates of the stable branch, to keep GNOME in Factory 'up-to-date'; This is a small change, as it means you no longer get 'unstable' branches of GNOME in here. But it gets you (hopefully!) stable experience, which you can expect 'quickly' to land in openSUSE:Factory
Dominique, how does this relate to GNOME:Stable?
Good question Andreas,
Short answer: no change to what we have so far.
GNOME:STABLE:* are 'best effort' repositories provided for 'the latest version of GNOME on top of the latest release of openSUSE as long as resource and technicalities allows for it'
So currently, that means GNOME 3.12 is available in there for openSUSE 13.1, which was shipped with GNOME 3.10.
In September/October, GNOME 3.14 will be released, BUT the 'resource' factor will, with a high probability, NOT allow to port this to openSUSE 13.1, as we will be busy ensuring this to properly find its way into Factory for the 13.2 split. So for GNOME 3.14, the openSUSE Version to be used will be openSUSE 13.2.
So, for Tumbleweed, that means I will not be able to offer GNOME 3.14? What in 13.2 do you "need" that keeps this from being backported to 13.1? Any specific packages that you know of?
