The plan is following:

After SLED10 release we plan to start upgrading to gnome 2.15.x.

As part of that we want to do a patch upstreaming effort - we have too
many patches.

We also want to standardize spec files.

As a part of this, we think about:

- better and consistent package naming scheme after dropping of most
parts of GNOME1.

- move prefix from /opt/gnome to /usr.

There is a potential problem with binary compatibility. It's easy to
make a symlink /opt/gnome -> /usr to provide this compatibility, but it
is a well known RPM issue, that it will delete required files after it.
We hope this bug will be fixed for 10.2 or at least for SLES11.
