Sorry I'm resurrecting the thread. I used part-GTK+ 3.0 desktop and I
noticed that version no longer follows the migration (i.e. 2.31.5 of
package uses GTK+ 3.0 but 2.31.6 uses GTK+ 2.0).

May I propose that:
Future 2.31.x/2.32.x uses GTK+ 2.0
Future 2.9x.x uses GTK+ 3.0 (especially if released along the 2.31.x/2.32.x)


PS. I'm sorry if similar proposal had passed - I haven't noticed it.
