GNOME status update: GNOME Desktop completely packaged; and TODOs


All the gnome-desktop packages are now in pkgsrc or wip.
The one in wip is vinagre, which is there because it core dumps on the
first connection attempt. It depends on gtk-vnc, which tries to do
something with coroutines which I guess fails. It would be good if
someone could look at this.
Except for vinagre, only gdm needs updating.

Of course, that doesn't mean everything's working, the GNOME todo list
is at

Feel free to add entries, or even better, fix some of them!
