openSUSE Tumbleweed status for the week of April 22, 2011

Here's a short note as to the status of some recent activity in the
openSUSE:Tumbleweed repo:

- new kernel updates tracking the upstream stable 2.6.38 releases.
- lxde (and its sub-packages) was added
- calibre was added
- other smaller packages were added
- KDE update seems stable and working.  It's in the
  openSUSE:Tumbleweed:KDE repo if anyone wants to test it out now.  I'll
  be working next few weeks to merge this into the main
  openSUSE:Tumbleweed repo as my bandwidth allows.
- There is a GNOME 3.0 Tumbleweed repo at openSUSE:Tumbleweed:GNOME.
  It's properly building right now, but the same caveats remain for the
  main GNOME 3.0 repo (i.e. network manager issues with KDE, and other
  minor stuff), so I can't merge it to the main openSUSE:Tumbleweed repo
  just yet.  I'll wait for these changes to settle down, but if you
  want, feel free to try out the repo for your GNOME 3.0 systems running
  Tumbleweed.  I'll keep it up to date as the changes merge into the
  main GNOME 3.0 repo.
- artwork questions were raised with one proposed logo already sent in.
  More to come in this area hopefully soon.
- There were a few "version downgrades" that happened as the upstream
  project release number was changed to reflect the basesystem release
  number correctly.  This will probably continue to happen as this
  change is propagated throughout the openSUSE build system to fix up
  these errors by the various developers.  You can safely ignore them
  when they happen.

As always, if anyone knows of any packages they wish to see added to
Tumbleweed, please let me know.
