Dear God... my GNOME2 setup is now a cocktail of Debian Sid packages, Debian Experimental packages, garnome, and jhbuild. This is getting silly but it is much faster — as I don't have to build the core libraries myself but simply use the Debian packages. Details of this procedure are on my web space. (well, will be when I put it there)

GNOME2 is really looking polished now — Gman, Calum et al are really working hard in #ui-review cleaning up the interface.


My DebianUpdate script is complete UI-wise but is missing one function — the ability to analyse the apt repository and decide what updates are required... Has anyone out there used Python with the apt libraries?
