TARBALLS DUE (before Monday 23:59 UTC!, don't forget translators!): GNOME 2.30.0 Final Release

Hi all,

While translators and the documentation team are busy pushing fixes
until the very last minute, a lot of coders are enjoying some quiet
days. Ah, the hard code freeze is a good excuse to procrastinate. Sure,
not everybody manages to procrastinate successfully: some people are
still working hard on fixing those last major bugs that are annoying.
Aren't they crazy? Fixing major bugs, what an idea... And they request
freeze breaks to the release team, which makes it harder for release
team members to procrastinate. Oh, by the way, let me remind here that
you can bribe the release team to get your fix in. Just think about what
would please some of us, that's easy ;-)

We are all enjoying those quiet times. But soon, procrastination time
will be over: 2.30.0 is due next week, and this also marks the beginning
of the next development cycle! To get used to typing text in your
favorite editor again, a good first step is to release your tarball for
2.30.0 in time. Even if you didn't change anything since the last
release, there will likely be new and updated translations that we want
to distribute to our users, so please do not forget to roll your

Tarballs are due on Monday March 29th before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME
2.30.0 Final Release, which will be delivered on Wednesday.

Please make sure that your tarballs will be uploaded before Monday
23:59 UTC: tarballs uploaded later than that will probably be too late
to get in 2.30.0. If you are not able to make a tarball before Monday or
if you think you'll be late, please send a mail to the release team and
we'll find someone to roll the tarball for you!

We encourage everyone to help with the smoketesting effort. We will
publish jhbuild modulesets on Tuesday at:

If you find a bug that you believe might be a blocker, please send a
mail to the release team.
