When I said that, I thought it takes a few days but seems that is
not the case. Its been like 10 days that I made this proposal, nobody
objected on the deps but nobody seems to update the external deps
wikipage even though I sent a mail to release-team this morning so I'm
not sure about the status of the proposal. Same goes for the Vala bump
proposal I made separately.
If these things usually take such a long time, I don't think I'll
have any choice but to start doing most of the development on
gitorious clone and only sync to gnome git master twice a month. :( I
hope thats OK with everyone?
