I know, I know. This seems more like a quarterly report than a weekly report, but it is more that I took a sabbatical from port maintenance than that I have been lazy with this report.
Almost all of the ported GNOME packages are now at current stable versions! The big blocker on this was (and remains) d-bus. It builds correctly, the d-bus glib bindings build correctly, but d-bus does not work correctly. Try running the test suite (make check) after building it and you’ll see the problem.
I am planning on reworking the TODOs section of the MacPorts GNOME page such that it is up-to-date and every TODO is listed as a ticket in the tracker.
