We follow gnome release plan as closely as possible.

* One important goal we missed was completing glade integration. We had
lack of resource to complete it. We are hoping to get it done via GSoC.

* The other was not completing 'new symbol db' plugin. We underestimated
the time required to complete it.

A reminder email notification of pending GNOME release, about 48 hours
before, would be nice.

No plan so far.

I would like to see improved GNOME 'platform' support for developer
tools. So far all focus is on User Desktop support, but some of those
users are also developers.

For example, there is elaborate mime-type icons available in platform
for document files (doc, pdf, xls, txt, img ...), but very little for
developer files (language file, hearder files, executables, shared
libraries, static libraries,, Changlog ...). So, while file
manager window looks extremely nice in your 'documents folder', it looks
flat white in your source directory (and in IDE like anjuta).
