GNOME 2.11.x Development Series

GNOME 2.11.x is an unstable development series intended for testing and hacking purposes. GNOME uses odd minor version numbers to indicate development status, so this unstable 2.11.x series will eventually become the official 2.12 stable release. There are many ways you can get involved.
