I would like to stay current with Shotwell releases by compiling everything from source.

The problem I run into is that with each Shotwell release dependencies are changing and many times the 
distro is unable
to provide some of these dependencies.
Can you give some examples of dependencies that the distro is unable to provide?


How about even the compiler:
$ make
Shotwell requires Vala compiler 0.20.1 or greater.  You are running 0.16.1 \b.
make: *** [valacheck] Error 1
# yum list vala
Available Packages
vala.i686                                                  0.16.1-1.fc17                                      

And before you go down the path that F17 is EOL.  There are a lot of people who have very stable systems 
running older
releases of Fedora as well as other distros.  Including Ubuntu LTS distros that would like to be able to have 
a current
and working Shotwell install.
