Re: Suggestion for a possibility to have a stable version of Ubuntu Gnome 3.6


I must be missing something, obviously, but what prevents us from
having multiple versions of the problematic packages (nautilus, totem
and the needed libraries) in the repository and have
ubuntu-gnome-desktop depend on the latest versions while
ubuntu-desktop depends on the oldest versions? It's already possible
for other packages like gstreamer or python AFAIK.
