Makes sense. Whatever is our latest released product is "STABLE" for us

* GNOME:Factory

Great idea, especially if it makes it easier for non-Novell team members
to contribute.

I would be even more radical. The current design of GNOME:* was created
in past, when OBS was not able of joining of projects when building and
one-click install did not exist.

Nowadays, things have changed and the layout all-in-one seems to be

It consists from several types of packages:
GNOME core packages following GNOME release cycle
GNOME platform packages following GNOME release cycle
GNOME based packages not following GNOME release cycle
GTK+2 packages following GTK+ release cycle
GTK+2 based packages not following any release cycle
Gstreamer packages
random packages present only as dependencines
random packages (and mono package) present only as gnome-maintainers@

So I would like to propose:

GNOME platform: Keep the two-repos concept.

GTK+ platform: Ditto, may have its own repos or use GNOME repos.

Applications: Create a separate repository of applications, which don't
follow GNOME/GTK+ release cycle. Maybe even better, drop many of them.
For example gqview or GIMP development would fit much better to
multimedia:photo than GNOME:UNSTABLE.

Gstreamer: I am thinking about move to multimedia:something altogether
with multimedia libraries. It would make Gstreamer build simpler.

randmom packages: remove them

mono packages and mono based packages: check whether they are in mono
projects and move or drop in GNOME repos.
