Cool, I'll start hacking on scripts to automate changing docs on the
wiki somewhat.

Hmm, the discussion about distributing fresh unstable builds seemed to
fetter away last time I believe...

Is somebody could give me a place on an FTP server to stick vmware
images, I'd be happy to build GNOME every 2.odd.x release. I could put a
page about downloading and installing these and vmware on the wiki also.

I see this being built on Ubuntu, for ease and so they can get bug
reports also. A better solution may be to use a distribution where you
can choose *only* the components needed, such as gentoo or LFS, but I
see this as being too time consuming...

Conditional on getting Garnome to build however, I find it a bit of a
