the subject should of course have been "GNOME 3.30rc2 (3.29.92) RELEASED"

Thanks to all the people that ping me about this; good to know the
release announcement messages are being read :)

Hi all!

The second release candidate for 3.30 is here! Remember this is the
end of this development cycle, enjoy it as fast as you can, the final
release is scheduled next Wednesday!

As a highlight of this release I'd like to mention:
- We have added i386 and armv7 jobs to the gnome-build-meta repo
(still working on some build failures, like [1] and [2])
- We have merged the branch [3] to build GNOME flatpak runtimes
directly with gnome-build-meta instead gnome-sdk-image repo [4]
More work is still needed [5] but this will eventually allow us to
maintain a single set of metadata instead 2 different ones. Kudos to
Abderrahim Kitouni for his work on this!

We remind you we are string frozen, no string changes may be made
without confirmation from the l10n team (gnome-i18n@) and notification
to both the release team and the GNOME Documentation Project

Hard code freeze is also in place, no source code changes can be made
without approval from the release-team.  Translation and documentation
can continue.

If you want to compile GNOME 3.29.92, you can use the official
BuildStream project snapshot. Thanks to BuildStream's build
sandbox, it should build reliably for you regardless of the
dependencies on your host system:

The list of updated modules and changes is available here:

The source packages are available here:


This release is a snapshot of development code. Although it is
buildable and usable, it is primarily intended for testing and hacking
purposes. GNOME uses odd minor version numbers to indicate development
