GNOME 3.9 coming to PPA?

Ubuntu has started lagging one release behind GNOME, which makes things
a little tricky for people like me who want to build and run the latest
versions (i.e. git master) of various GNOME apps. In the Raring
development cycle the GNOME 3 PPA
(https://launchpad.net/~gnome3-team/+archive/gnome3) provided at least
some packages for GNOME 3.8 which was helpful. Now, of course, I'm
looking for 3.9. :) It's a huge help that Saucy has already updated
to GLib 2.37.0. What I most want now is a working binary package for
GTK 3.9.0. Saucy is still way behind at GTK 3.6.4. (If I had
relatively recent versions of both glib and GTK then building other
stuff would be pretty easy.)
Anyway, so now my questions are
- Is there a plan for the GNOME 3 PPA to provide GNOME 3.9 packages for
Saucy during this next development cycle? If so, when might those
start to appear, especially a newer GTK?
- If that isn't planned, does anyone out there have a working GTK 3.9
binary for Saucy, perhaps in another PPA?
(By the way I myself tried building GTK 3.9 for Saucy a couple of days
ago but the app menu didn't work, even though I had applied the proxy
patch. Haven't had a chance to investigate why.)
