I'm sure Ganneff can do better...

seb128 → seb210

It is obvious that we at the Debian GNOME team didn't hold up our promise and didn't make much progress on GNOME 2.10 Debian packages for experimental.

There are a few reasons for this, mainly the people that are more involved in this happenings being quite busy and we still were fighting the last few bits for the GNOME 2.8 packages for Sarge. People kept asking, and they kept being directed to my blog, which wasn't too helpful 3 weeks after I last wrote about this...

But don't worry! As you probably know by now, Ubuntu Hoary has been released, and this means that our mighty seb128 has not been able to upload 50 packages each day as Hoary was frozen.

What does this have to do with your shiny experimental packages, you ask? Well, many don't know, but seb128 is an upload addict. He needs to upload a minimum of 10 packages each day to rest peacefully every night. With no Ubuntu uploads to do lately, he quickly shifted his focus to Debian, and the result is that as you read this, GNOME 2.10 packages for Debian are slowly hitting incoming and experimental.

seb128 is now, officially, seb210!

(In not so important news, I stopped procrastinating and built Gustavo's libgda, libgnomedb and mergeant packages for unstable. libgda will hit incoming soon, and tomorrow we will upload the rest, aiming for a quick transition to GNOME-DB 1.2).
