 I see gamin 0.1.8 on that page, so I don't understand what you mean,
maybe someone else did the update ?

W.r.t. "make a good case for it on desktop-devel-list" I'm afraid I not
tempted to go there, and must admit I feel the same for libxml2 and
libxslt. I assume as long as other people care the status quo is just fine.
Also note that libxml2 and libxslt upstream releases are now uploaded 
on only (I got an issue once trying to cancel 
a broken release on the gnome FTP servers and will now stick to a server
on which I have complete control, I also want to have the signed source
RPM with my PGP key date and host of packaging embedded available on the
main server). But that should not really be a problem, in general libxml2
and libxslt are packaged as part of the OS, and I doubt GNOME really relies
on features from the latest versions at any point in time.
