Re: Gtk+ 2.8 for GNOME 2.12

[I'm not opposed to 2.7 going in anymore- what bugs there are seem to
be getting fixed very promptly- so this is just for information.]

For the record, because fedora/rh basically actively discourage people
from using rawhide (though this is less true than it used to be),
'rawhide does $FOO' is not particularly persuasive to the QA team- the
evidence suggests that most people follow RH's advice and don't use
it. Mentions of breezy and hoary run about 5x the rate of mentions of
rawhide in bugzilla in equivalent time frames, and have done so
consistently since those were released. [In the past month, the
timeframe in question here, the breezy:rawhide ratio is in fact 50:2.]
This 'research' is to be taken with a grain of salt, obviously, since
many people don't feel obliged to mention what distro they run when
they file a bug, but that likely applies fairly equally to users of
both distros.

Luis (if I were in charge of rh/fedora QA, job #0 would be to increase
usage of rawhide)
