Given my continued absence from GTK+ development (I plan to make
a sudden reappearance once  FC6 is out...), I'd be cautious about planning
for GTK+ 2.12 in the next Gnome release. Yes, we did say we're shooting
for 2.12 by end of January 07, but things may drag out (as they usually
do), and we don't want to get into a situation where we have to rush
2.12 out because Gnome depends on it.

Just my opinion, but it would be nice to take into account some of the
performance discussion going on with regards to gtk-cairo and
pango-cairo.   If there can be some agreement on how best to handle
the floating point peformance problems in those relationships,
embedded would benefit and help provide a roadmap out of gtk 2.6.


I personally think it would be a good aim to use the 2.17 cycle to make sure
that GTK+ 2.10 features are actually used thoughout the stack, and help
making them more solid and shake out remaining bugs on the way.
Port the keybinding applet to GtkCellRendererAccel, use the printing
framework...things like that.

Just my opinion,
