 I do read the release announcements (I admit that I don't always trust
 the contents to be up-to-date since a lot of copy-pasting is involved).

 The reason I ask about API and ABI stability is that we have some
 policies, rules, and packaging guidelines which would conflict with
 pushing non-final APIs to Debian.  Debian/unstable would certainly not
 fit, and I'm not too hot on Debian/experimental as it's too visible and

 where we could upload Debian packages of development versions of GNOME
 libs prepared by the Debian GNOME Team and where this would be

 Just my 2 ¢ on why you don't find gtk+2.0 in Debian just yet, albeit
