Gnome 3.18 from gnome overlay is not quite usable yet, but if you craft some custom ebuilds (it really needs gsettings-desktop-schemas 3.18.0) - it works just fine

Well I guess I could try it for my PC but wanted a more stable 3.18 repo before I give my relative's PC back.

I will try it for my PC then if thats the case.


What's a typical wait time for a new Gnome release to hit Gentoo official testing?

typically gnome 3.18 will be in gentoo stable when 3.20 will be in upstream...

I upgraded to 3.18 with gnome overlay.
It seems work fine.

But if you are using nvidia proprietary video driver, you may need to apply some patches to gnome-shell-3.18.0 .
Or GDM login won't work properly.
