Package: gnome
Version: 1:2.26+2
Severity: minor


With GNOME 2.28 there was an initial Gnome Shell release (preview
release) but it's not in Debian, NEW o in the packagelist on
http://www.0d.be/debian/debian-gnome-2.28-status.html .

Do Debian GNOME Maintainers have the intention to package that (new)
module of GNOME?
