http://permalink.gmane.org – Hello all, We all want to enjoy GNOME 2.29.91 next week, so the release team will be waiting for your tarballs! Tarballs are due on 2010-02-22 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 2.29.91 beta release, which will be delivered on Wednesday. Modules which were proposed for inclusion should try to follow the unstable schedule so everyone can test them. Please make sure that your tarballs will be uploaded before Monday 23:59 UTC: tarballs uploaded later than that will probably be too late to get in 2.29.91. If you are not able to make a tarball before this deadline or if you think you'll be late, please send a mail to the release team and we'll find someone to roll the tarball for you! Also we enter string freeze on February 24th, no string changes may be made without confirmation from the translation team (gnome-i18n< at >) and notification to release team, translation team, and documentation team. From this point, developers can concentrate on stability and bug-fixing. Translators can work without worrying that the original English strings will change, and documentation writers can take accurate screenshots. For the string freezes explained, and to see which kind of changes are not covered by freeze rules, check http://live.gnome.org/TranslationProject/HandlingStringFreezes. And don't forget UI freeze is already in effect: no UI changes may be made at all without confirmation from the release team and notification to the documentation team (gnome-doc-list< at >). For more information about 2.29, the full schedule, the official module lists and the proposed module lists, please see our colorful 2.29 page: http://www.gnome.org/start/unstable For a quick overview of the GNOME schedule, please see: http://live.gnome.org/Schedule Cheers, Frederic (Software)
