Let's see at UDS but I've mentioned at several occasion on lists and IRC 
that I think we should stay on the stable GNOME cycle starting next 
cycle and I'm going to push for that. We need to know what is going to 
change during the cycle at UDS to schedule work and that's not possible 
with GNOME nowadays (you can see the number of examples in 3.6: 
nautilus, keyboard, gstreamer ... not to mention half those are not 
doable in one cycle and GNOME stable ends up with regressions, which 
might be ok for them but is not for us).

Doing the whole GNOME stack update every 3 weeks and dealing with build 
issues and regressions it creates is also a time sink (look at how hard 
it has been to try to get a working webkit version this cycle...), I 
think it would be better for Ubuntu and our users to focus on stability 
rather and to be able to plan at the start of the cycle what we will 
have to do
