[gnome-network][Fwd: TARBALLS DUE: GNOME 2.5.0 Development Release]


Here's a message about the first 2.5 development release. It says that
maintainers willing to have their apps added to the GNOME release should
make a release this week.

So, since we want to be added, I am going to make a release. So, please,
if you've got things to fix, do it as soon as possible.

Also, I guess we really need then to release libgnetwork, so we need to
rename all stuff in the source code. I'll try to make a script to do it.

Good morning all,

I have a little story to tell. The other weekend, I went paintballing. This
is an incredibly violent activity, in which two teams dress up in army green
overalls, don scary helmets, and shoot water-based paint pellets at each
other with semi-automatic gas-powered rifles. As I surveyed the battlefield,
a thought struck me - as hard as those little welt-inducing pellets were
hitting the other team - that all these crazy kids running around in green
overalls and facemasks looked just like... DAVE "CAPTAIN" CAMP.


So this week, YOU TOO can be just like DAVE "CAPTAIN" CAMP, by releasing
your latest MINDNUMBINGLY COOL software for the first GNOME 2.5 series
release. If you're not excited now, just wait until we send Dave around to
convince you that RELEASES ARE COOL. He sharpens his teeth, by the way.


  If you're keen to see your software included in GNOME 2.6, please make a
  release this week, and send an email to desktop-devel-list and
  release-team to let everyone know that you've proposed your module and
  will be following the 2.5 series releases.

If you're already in the modules list, you know the drill. :-)

We'll release everything that builds and runs which is available by
Wednesday or Thursday this week.
