Hi developers,

If you are unable to connect to GIMPNet this week, you probably need to
update GnuTLS. See below. At least Polari and other telepathy clients
will be unable to connect without updated GnuTLS. Most distros should
have fixes on the way already. We will try to get updated GNOME 3.34
and 3.36 runtimes out soon for flatpak users.
