	So, I think what's more important to us is not that modules make a
release for each GNOME release, but that if they are being actively
developed then they make a release. The philosophy is very much that the
GNOME schedule should not be feature based, but time based. If some
GnomeMeeting features weren't ready for GNOME 2.8, I would have expected
those features to be disabled, the rest of the work stabilised and a
release made for GNOME 2.8.

	The external library issue is hard - I don't know how you deal with
that. Maybe not use any new APIs from that library until a somewhat
stable release of those new APIs have been made?
