GNOME 2.14 for Debian

The observant eyes will have noticed a few interesting uploads hitting unstable or incoming in the last few days. GNOME 2.14 is being uploaded to unstable in small chunks, in an attempt to let the buildd's do the compiling in a given order, so things can get sorted out in all architectures at the same time.

The libraries will take a few days to get in, and once most of them are in place, you can expect more mass uploads of end-user applications of the GNOME 2.14 suite.

As this time no big or complicated dependencies were introduced in the release, and there are no soname changes involved, it was easier to avoid the previous, and sometimes annoying experimental uploads.
