I am getting a lot of bug messages, that GNOME:STABLE breaks other
packages in older distributions (e. g. zypp for 10.3).

Because there was no discussion about the GNOME:* reorganization, I want
to raise this topic again.

I want to propose splitting of the repository to fix these issues to
these repositories:

GNOME:GTK_STABLE: Safe to update packages from here. Optional, may be
part of GNOME:STABLE. For gtk2, glib2, atk, pango,

GNOME:GTK_UNSTABLE: Unsafe but consistent. Optional.
(or maybe name it GNOME:GTK_NEXT or so)

GNOME:STABLE: Safe to update packages from here. Official GNOME
packages only (GNOME release cycle).

GNOME:UNSTABLE: Unsafe but consistent. Optional.
(or maybe name it GNOME:NEXT or so)

I don't see the benefit of the GTK_* repositories.

GNOME:APPLICATIONS: Set of GNOME applications and GNOME application

In all repositories above, no updates of dependent non-GNOME package
will be allowed!

Do you mean no updates of packages that GNOME depends upon, or packages
that depend upon GNOME?

If you mean the former, I agree. If you mean the latter, I don't

Finally, what would the difference between GNOME:APPLICATIONS and
GNOME:Community be?
