In my opinion, freezes in effect on stable branches are indefinite, whether the branches are still maintained by upstream or not. Perhaps a good rule of thumb to follow here is to only backport patches from newer *stable* branches like gnome-3-0, never directly from master. Extended maintenance of older branches was discussed recently at GNOME.Asia . If you don't think there's consensus on the freeze issue, it might be worth bringing this up on desktop-devel-list or distributor-list, as I'm sure the topic is still fresh in people's minds.  http://np237.livejournal.com/31693.html _______________________________________________ evolution-hackers mailing list email@example.com To change your list options or unsubscribe, visit ... http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/evolution-hackers
