As some of you certainly already know, we are working hard to push GNOME 3.8 as an addon repository to you. All should be ready and a 'test' repository is in place (for brave souls!).
The gnome team conducted several tests so far and this seemed to work all just fine.... but it is limited testing.
Do you want to test some more? Feel free, let us know of issues!
how: (as root) zypper patch (Make sure ot be up-to-date first...) zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/dimstar:/broken/openSUSE_12.... GS38 zypper dup --from GS38 (preferably from a pure root tty login - you never know)
That should be it!
If all goes well, you should not see any odd dependency questions (if you do, please let me know.. I'd want to eliminate them as much as possible).
Thanks for your tests! The more brave people tests, the higher the quality of the repository can get.
Have a lot of fun! And happy GNOME 3.8-ing :)
