Gnome2.2 backport for woody

James Strandboge has completed a backport of Gnome2.2 for Debian GNU/Linux 3.0. Unfortunately, the author has not the bandwidth to make the debs available via apt.
I have been working over the last week on a backport of gnome2.2 for woody. All I have done is taken the sid packages for the list of packages on http://www.gnome.org/start/2.2/notes/rninstallation.html and compiled them on woody from sid sources. Read more
For most packages, it was simply a 'dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot' on woody. For others it required pulling in extra packages (like for gst-plugins), or modifying debian/control to use build dependencies from woody rather than sid (eg python2.2 instead of python). I also built gconf1 from sid sources as it can coexist with gconf2.
