 - Various releases of GNOME 3.5.x; another one being released atm
 - 3.5.x will at one point require a really new systemd (with
   hibernate/sleep functionality; in the systemd announcement Lennart
   said he'd explain soon in a blogpost)
 - GNOME online accounts 3.5.x at one point will depend on something to
   allow you to use the Microsoft Cloud thing (whatever the name is)
 - GNOME online accounts can depend on Facebook, but doesn't do by
   default. Think I might activate this
 - GNOME is adding some kind of initial setup screen, think handled by
   GDM. No details yet.

 - wait until new xorg is in cauldron (not testing)
 - wait until new systemd (with udev) is in cauldron
 - then move to 3.5.x and make GNOME require systemd
   at same time: explicitly kill any ConsoleKit support
   (some bits fall back to ConsoleKit, some bits don't.. supporting
   sysvinit will go away with Mageia 3, and I rather prevent bugreports
   from such configurations)

For Mageia 2:
 - there are still various bugreports open. Help welcome.
 - GNOME 3.4.2 should be provided as an update
   Hopefully can
