GNOME 2.1.x does depend on features in GTK+ 2.1.x and Pango 1.1.x. The GTK+
timeframe has been similiar enough to ours that we haven't been worried,
however it did come up in last night's release team meeting. :-) Will have
to ask Owen about it this week.

GStreamer will be in the Desktop release this time around (same level as
eel, libgnomeprint, et al.)

Yes, as noted (and described) in the proposed modules emails from a couple
of weeks ago.

The new modules will be listed in the 2.1.3 release notes again (they're all
Desktop modules), and there is a list of 2.0.x modules in dependency order
in the 2.0.x release notes. We're not too fussed about dependency order
stuff because we have build systems like GARNOME and jhbuild that help you
build from tarballs and CVS.
