Gnome 2.6 on Debian

I finally upgraded Gnome to 2.6 after reading that the package maintainers said it was ready for unstable but that Gnome 2.4 first had to be integrated into testing.

Q: When will GNOME 2.6 go into sid/sarge?

A: When it is ready and when sarge and sid are ready for it. This means that we have to wait until the GNOME 2.4 packages in sarge are not expected to break, as we can't update them after we've uploaded GNOME 2.6 to unstable. This means you can help us by testing the old GNOME 2.4! Yay!
