Is there a way to check if the DirctFB backend builds correctly before a
major GTK relase, like (i guess) is done for X and win32 backends?

The rule we have followed in the past is that the X backend has to build
and work. The win32 releases have generally lagged behind the major
GTK+ releases for a bit.

The best way to ensure that the directfb or any other backend works
in released versions of GTK+ is to make sure that it works in cvs...

Indeed, i made daily "cvs update" and rebuilt GTK from scratch for the whole past week, before 2.10.4 was released, but it seems this wasn't enough. As i'm deeply involved in graphical debian-installer development, i have a real reason to test the DFB backend on a regular basis and i don't mind spending some time in this task. If there is something else than simply testing from CVS that i can do, please don't hesitate to tell me.
