1. Should we copy all packages from G:F to a GNOME:Stable (I think
have a G:S but don't know the state of it. We might want to start
scratch here) and then update to 2.24.3

might be a good idea, I guess


Ok, so remaining questions are, do we use copypac or links? Using links
will put some maintenance burden on the project beyond just having the
latest stable GNOME release, since packages will break every now and
again when patches are created for 11.1/GNOME components.

yeah, but since patches and changes are being done for 11.1 as we speak,
we really need to merge changes at some point, so I think linkpac might
be the best, even though it adds extra maintainance work. But I think
it's easier than merging by hand all packages when submitting to G:F

Ok, linkpac it is.

Also, is G:S enough, or should we have a sub-project called G:S:2.24? I
mean, what will happen once 2.26 is released? Wipe G:C and start over,
or, by using subprojects, create G:C:2.26

not sure if we really want to have old GNOME versions lying around, I'd
say having STABLE and UNSTABLE should be enough. Once 2.26 is released,
it is moved to G:S, and 2.27 lands in G:F:N (or G:U)

Fair enough.

So... I'd really appreciate if someone could simply delete G:S and G:U
and re-create them as GNOME:Stable/GNOME:Unstable (Their names are all
upper case today which is kind of ugly) and then add me to the project
and I'll get going with it.

I went ahead to remove G:S and G:U, and while removing G:S, it
complained about G:C:openSUSE10.3+GNOME:STABLE, g:C:openSUSE11.0
+GNOME:STABLE and home:lrupp:openSUSE10.3. This seems plain wrong, given
that G:S has half of the packages failing building, but before removing
it, better to ask.

For G:U, we have the GNOME:snapshots:* projects using it, so will change
that as soon as we remove it.

So, can we remove those G:C repos?
