Glade and Glade3 information is not correct

Asked by Javier Jardón on 2010-04-12


This project is deprecated and is not shipped in current GNOME releases.
The latest version is 2.12.2, not 3.7.0.


This is the current project shipped with current GNOME releases
The latest version isd 3.7.0, not 3.0.3

I think the best solution is remove Glade ( completely and then rename Glade-3: ( to to avoid confusions.

Yuck this is a prolem. We really must do a better job at preventing people from registering duplicate projects. I agree there is only one project, and that project is named glade. But the proposed solution breaks the packaging links.

There is a lot more work involved to fix this. someone needs to replace all packaging links to glade to glade-3 so that the old project can be deactivated. The new project is missing its license and should be a part of the gnome project. I see that glade already has all the releases downloaded and that it has the identical import of glade/master

I think the easier fix is to move glade-3/trunk series glade, and make you the owner. The head series should be renamed to 2.x and the file-release pattern needs to removed and the duplicate tarball deleted.

Do you prefer option 1 or option 2.

How about rename the current glade project to glade-2 (and fix the release version to 2.12.2) and glade-3 to glade?

Note that the upstream is the deprecated project, the currenty active project is

Also, I'm going to ask to the current glade3 maintainers to rename the project to glade to avoid confusions

Curtis Hovey (sinzui) said : #3

Okay. I will ask the admins to rename glade to glade2. I will update the head series to remove the glade-3 items.

Can you update glade-3 to have the correct license and make is a part of the GNOME project?

Curtis Hovey (sinzui) said : #4

I updated the glade-2 project information and removed the glade-3 releases.

Forcing the status to open so that an admin will see it in his list.

Thank you Curtis,

> Can you update glade-3 to have the correct license and make is a part of the GNOME project?

Sure, but seems that I can't edit the project properties. How can I get the needed permissions?

* renamed glade to glade-2.old, as glade-2 already exists
* made Javier maintainer of glade-2.old
* created an alias for glade-3: 'glade'
* made Javier maintainer for glade-3

Javier, that should give you the perms etc necessary?
