GNOME 2.16.0 Release Candidate 1 (2.15.92) has been released:

We are pleased to announce the release of GNOME 2.16.0 Release Candidate 1 (2.15.92). This is one of the last releases in the 2.15 development series and represents a release that is now API/ABI, feature, string and UI frozen. Hard code freeze is quickly approaching : this means that we're pretty close to the final 2.16.0 release. The GNOME contributors are now busy fixing the most important bugs that are still out there, localizing the whole desktop or updating our documentation.

You can still make a difference and contribute to the best GNOME release ever! Do you see all the 2.15.92 tarballs? Go download them. Go compile them. Go test them. And go hack on them, document them, translate them, fix them.
