GNOME 3.0.1 is being moved in [extra]

This is a major update and you should take note of a couple of things:

  * GNOME3 is replacing GNOME2

  * GNOME3 has two modes, "standard" mode (gnome-shell) and "fallback" mode
(gnome-panel + metacity)

  * Some packages, like applets using Bonobo, will be dropped in the next few
days. A list will be available at

  * pulseaudio is now required to run the GNOME desktop

Update and installation instructions are available at

Only bugs related to packaging should be reported to

Crashes and feature requests should be reported to
