Thanks, but I know that Gnome 2.26 has been pushed to 'current'.

I think notify-osd is very interesting in concept. I haven't yet
decided whether or not I like it.

Great work by Bouleetbil, as always.
My questions were mainly aimed at discovering how users may interact
with WIP repos - if at all. If we don't want users using them then
perhaps I shouldn't mention them in the newsletter. If we *DO* want
users testing them, then I should mention them. Since I haven't seen
many official announcements of WIP repos - perhaps I'm reading the
wrong MLs - I don't know whether or not to recommend their use to
users, of course for testing only.
May you always be Frugal,
Russell Dickenson (AKA phayz)
