Re: [opensuse-gnome] Coming up with a plan to test GNOME 3 in 11.2
I think it'd be nice to make it easy for people to test the GNOME 3
stuff in 11.2. A few things this could imply:

+1 and great fore-thought!

+ having a nice page explaining how to
setup everything (with one-click install links), what should be
tested, etc.

Links to known and significant bugs in bnc/bgo as well and a link to
this page easily and obviously visible within the GNOME 3 default setup.

+ make it easy to choose to log in GNOME Shell instead of the
traditional metacity + panel from gdm.
This implies:
- adding a .desktop file in /usr/share/xsessions

Owned by which package? I say gnome-shell presumably but may be wrong.

- setting up a specific directory that will contain new autostart
files, mostly for gnome-shell. The desktop files will contain
X-GNOME-Provides=panel and X-GNOME-Provides=windowmanager (we
might be able to merge this into one with "panel;windowmanager;")

Just checking, these fields are already supported by gnome-session are

Any other ideas? Any volunteers? :-)

Obviously I'll test, will work on packaging too.
