"Explaining why GNOME may include more Mono-dependent
applications, Neary said: "There is a module proposal period which
precedes each release, and the module proposal period for GNOME
2.28 is currently ongoing. There will be another module proposal
period for 2.30 (which is likely to be GNOME 3.0). It is possible
we'll defer 3.0 until 2.32, if there are issues which would
jeopardise the stability and quality of the release, in which case
there would be another module proposal period for that release also
before the 3.0 release.
""I'm afraid I am not in a position to pre-empt the module
addition proposals which will be made between now & then, or
the decision which the GNOME community (through the release team)
will take on those propositions which are made.""
