I don't care either way, but I'm updating GNOME from 2.14.2 to
2.14.3 (only because all the work has been done for a long time,
just had to update the book text - I'll probably commit tonight).

I think it would be nice to do the KDE update, but it is a lot
of work, and a couple of months after BLFS-6.2.0 is released, KDE
will probably be lagging again.

Your call, Bruce.

I'm really not qualified to comment. I'm still using Xorg-6.9 and
still have never built the autotooled version of Xorg yet. I'm way
behind in the X world, but am I really that behind? Is there any
*real* functionality that has been added in the last while that
I'm doing without because I haven't moved to the autotooled version?
