blueprint to organize GNOME 3.8 in Ubuntu

Hey everyone,

I just registered to 
organize work around that

We do plan to aim at getting GNOME 3.8 in S but, as written in the 
whiteboard, this cycle we will not land updates if those:

- have known issues which are considered blocker (check with the 
channel/list or ping me if you are unsure if a bug is a blocker)

- have some patches that are not updated yet (we did accept to do that 
this cycle and nobody took responsibility to update the patches during 
the cycle which created extra works and bugs that will be released in 

- require a transition which is not prepared (e.g if you want a soname 
to land, we need somebody in charge of testing the rdepends and 
organizing work around that to make sure it doesn't takes weeks and 
block proposed to archive during that time)

Or said differently, let's stick to quality, get work done, and land 
things when we are happy about those ;-)

Feel free to add workitems on the blueprint if they are things you are 
working on. We can discuss some of the topics in details at the vUDS, in 
a few weeks, if required.

Happy hacking everyone!
