I didn't update i686 yet for the package updates I did last weekend.
Eventually, glib2 has to be removed from both testing and extra and should
be added to core for i686. I updated to core on x86_64 as I wanted the gtk2
package to depend on the latest version and have the move done from extra to
core. I didn't ask for signoff for this one for a reason though: by the time
we have it signed off and I have moved it into core there's a new version
already. Besides, glib2 is not a critical core package, because it's a
makedepend for syslog-ng only. Syslog-ng doesn't change because of a glib2
upgrade, as it is compiled static. I did some runtime tests with the new
glib2 and gtk2 packages and all worked fine.

I'll see what I can do with the i686 packages this weekend, hope to shorten
the difflist.
