Vincent, please note the above. :)  GARNOME used to offer pre-releases
and I'm sure we can synchronize this even more with the GNOME release
schedule. The point here is, that Joseph and I are still waiting to get
CVS access...

Personally, I would *love* to see this happen. Both, GNOME release
quality in general and GARNOME will benefit by this. A GARNOME release
for smoketesting sure will broaden the user base testing prior to the
official release and GARNOME itself will get even more stable.

True. We definitely should think about a plan how to get this actually
done and synchronize our efforts.

FWIW, CVS holds some evidence of *major* action during the hot release
phase. A lot of updates where done only minutes after the released
tarballs hit f.g.o. :)


char *t="\10pse\0r\0dtu\0  ghno\x4e\xc8\x79\xf4\xab\x51\x8a\x10\xf4\xf4\xc4";

(c=*++x); c&128 && (s+=h); if (!(h>>=1)||!t[s+h]){ putchar(t[s]);h=m;s=0; }}}
