Hi Martin,

Since your frozen release was accompanied by a list of exceptions, and
since the list of API changes planned by the current libgnome*
developers is reasonably finite, and a number of them are done
already, I don't think it's fair to say that lignome[ui] was frozen
before, and now is not. I think it's in more or less the same state -
the new maintainer just has a slightly different idea of what
remaining changes are needed than you did.

I have to say that I don't really want to see gnome-libs end up in
endless code churn of people changing things back and forth. But it
seems like the current team has a clear plan and is executing on it.
So I think we're better off helping to make sure the plan is a
reasonable one, and that they actually follow it and don't add new
items for weeks on end than to try to fight it like this.
