Gnome 3.16 backport for Debian Jessie

Postby talby » Wed Aug 19, 2015 11:01 am

Hello. Searching for some Debian (stable) distribution as the base OS, but then having some up-to-date desktop experience (Gnome 3.16), I found Parsix. I wonder why the Parsix work to get Gnome 3.16 to run on Jessie is not simply available as a backport to Jessie. Could someone comment on this? Thanks!

Hello,

As you may already know, Parsix 8.0 (Mumble) is based on Debian Jessie, and our GNOME 3.16 can be considered a backport to Jessie. You can technically use our APT repos to install GNOME 3.16 on ?Jessie.

Any chance to copy it to the official backports site of jessie (https://wiki.debian.org/Backports), then? Would be great!
