	In that previous discussion we reached a rough consensus of "we'll ship
with GTK+ 2.8, but lets allow ourselves room to revert if we need to".

	In the discussion on this list ealier this week we reached a rough
consensus of "things are looking good, it looks even less likely that
we'll revert".

	The release-team then discussed it and decided to make that consensus

	IMHO, that's pretty good going as far as consensus-reaching in GNOME is

	Now, what I find truly bizarre about this whole thread is that AFAIR[1]
you are the very one who dispairs about the GNOME community's inability
to come to a decision about anything.

	The sane way to participate and strengthen this decision making process
of ours is to take part in the discussion as it happens ... not come
along after the fact and try to undermine the decision.

Good Luck,
