Ah, didn't even know 2.15.90 was there :-) I'm switching. Is there some

A new one is created for each release; you can see the release
schedule at

I would love to see a change to sample-tarball.jhbuildrc though, since I
think the one in there is broken:

--- jhbuild_moduleset_2.15.4_org/sample-tarball.jhbuildrc       2006-07-25 21:34:36.000000000 +0100

Just a missing space?  I can add that.

A last question, is the comment about mozilla in
sample-tarball.jhbuildrc still relevant?

 # Mozilla is still braindead and won't install the nss headers
 # correctly, so let's just avoid it.  Those who want to re-enable can
 # do so, just remove the skip line for mozilla and module_autogenargs
 # for evolution and evolution-data-server below.  Then also read

Honestly, I don't know.  Although it might not matter since we build
firefox (will probably soon be xulrunner) instead of mozilla, where
this might not be an issue.  We don't do very good at keeping
sample-tarball.jhbuildrc up to date (I have left the wrong release
number in there before, e.g. 2.15.2 when doing the 2.15.3 release).
We tend to only add stuff there if definitely needed to fix something
broken, and then often forget about it.  I only barely removed the
howl workaround yesterday when we stopped using howl months ago.  If
you suspect any other issues and can verify the correct fix, send it
along our way.
