Any timeline as to when Gnome2.6 will be unmasked in portage?

More time you wait, better will be the desktop gnome!
I think that there are some bugs in 2.6, perhaps we get the 2.6.1....
I don't know.

The Gnome website lists the release date for 2.6.1 as April 21st, but that date came and went without any change. As a matter of fact, I can't find any mention of 2.6.1 on their page at all other than the place that lists the supposed release date. Not even a blurb to acknowledge that the deadline has passed or to give a reason for the delay.

Judigng from this message, Gnome 2.6.1 was released today. 2.6 itself works great already. You can dip your toes into the waters of unstable by putting all of the gnome packages (they're all listed in the gnome-2.6 ebuild) into /etc/portage/package.keywords with ~arch

Code:

>=dev-libs/glib-2.4 ~arch
>=dev-libs/atk-1.6 ~arch
...
>=net-analyzer/gnome-netstatus-2.6.0.1 ~arch


I haven't had any problems with instability in the Gnome 2.6 packages but your mileage may vary.
