Wayne,

How do you determine what versions of the different packages make up
a Core GNOME release? Just FYI, I've always done it like this:

First go to http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/platform/2.26/2.26.3/sources/
and see what is listed. Then go to the actual source directory for a
particular package and see if there is an updated version. If there is,
I'd look at NEWS and the ChangeLog to see if it fixed a bug that was
in the release version. I've been known to use an updated version if
I felt it fixed a bug, or made it better.

Just curious how you are going to go about it.

Just so you know, I had those lines offset on purpose. This shows the reader
that it is a continued line and not a new --variable. Just FYI, but I had
done that on purpose.

The same as if you have a sed command, we do it like this:

sed -i -e "kdjfkasjdlkfjdkjfla;ksdjflkadsjfkdsjal;fjdsakfj" \
    name_of_file
