This is not practical, especially with so many incompatible RPM distributions out there. Plus the distros would just have to throw the spec files in the trash and use their own anyway. Plus there's debian-based distributions.

Ubuntu unstable has unstable gnome versions, incidentally, though they're not build nightly as that would be painful for everyone involved (imagine having to pull many megs of updates every day).

It'd be really nice if RPMs and DEBs had a way of supporting patching existing installs without downloading whole new packages.
