  pitti, 2011-04-27: add postponed work items from https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/packageselection-desktop-n-gnome3
  [jbicha] Nautilus 3 uses Ctrl+Del instead of Del to delete files, are we ok with this or should we patch it?
  Nautilus 3 by default does not display desktop icons (so right-click to
  Change Background doesn't work either). Also, Nautilus isn't started by
  default on login as it doesn't draw the desktop. We're going to keep the
  previous behavior, right?
  Session notes:
  Let us make GNOME3 rock on Ubuntu 11.10!
  Glib, GTK:
  * We will track the unstable glib and gtk version during the oneiric cycle, new gtk will be api,abi stable and should not be an issue
  Updates and ppa usage:
  * The GNOME3 ppa worked fine this cycle, it made easier for contributors to participate
  What about testing? It would get less testing in the ppa
  Natty Gnome 3 PPA
  * Keep it at 3.0.*
  * Don't include gnome-panel 3 as it breaks Ubuntu Classic by not supporting indicators
  Gnome 3.1 PPA
  * Both Natty & Oneiric?
  Plan of action:
  *  Start with merges from Debian and 3.0 landing
  * Then start landing 3.1 directly to Oneiric
  * Keep the GNOME 3.0 ppa running for natty
  * See if the ppa contributors are wanting to work on a 3.1 ppa for natty
  - clean libgnome, libgnomeui, libbonobo, libbonoboui, libglade, gconf, gnome-vfs, libgnomecanvas
    - Needed to switch to the new a11y to get rid of bonobo     -> we will do it, a11y said the new version is ready
  - gtk2 to gtk3: firefox is not likely going to be ported
  - get a gtk3 theme
    - https://bugzilla.mozillaMuonSoftwaremeeting/desktop-o-wayland/Center.o.org/show_bugrg/show_bug.
  Comunity themes will be changed to adapt to gtk3 (my proposal is to
  cgi?id=627699 (port gtk2 to gtk3)
    - https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=611953 (gnome 3.0 readiness)
  Gconf: the helper migrating the gconf values to gsettings will be rewritten to read directly the gconf database without depending on gconf to get the keys
  [seb128] review the rdepends by alpha1
  GTK: we need to think how the new GtkApplication menu that gnome-shell will use is going to play with indicator-appmenu
  Theming: Dx plans to port the theme to GTK3, making it working on GTK2 maybe, should land before feature freeze

  Overlay Scrollbars > Will they be ported to GTK3? yes
