Being on the same version than Debian could be nice in theory, in
practice they will probably not start on it before we ship (see where
they are for 3.2 at the moment for example), I would argue that we would
be closer from Debian if we stay on 3.2 this cycle so we could work on
the same versions.
You could also argue that having the same version than Debian in a LTS
would mean sharing stable work but in practice Debian do very little bug
fixing work on their stable series (i.e they wouldn't update to a new
minor GNOME serie but rather handle security issues and a few important
We should try to document what we update and not though, that's a good
idea, but we had most people in agreement at UDS that we should default
to be conservative and use the free time to fix bugs rather than playing
catching on unstable versions and I think we should stick to that.
(looking to the launchpad bugs opened since Oneiric or the SRU we did
gives an idea of the number of bugs GNOME gets in their stable versions,
we are aiming to better than that for next cycle).
