I have 2.20.5 (or 2.18.4) here, which means I get to stay with the
PackageKit 0.4.x branch for the foreseeable future (i.e. this year).
Which should be OK too, I guess. Let GLib 2.22 and GNOME 2.28 and
the glib2 library for PackageKit settle itself down a bit first...
But I think you should keep the "old" branch (0.4.x) around a while,
for new backends etc, while requiring all the new stuff for 0.6.x ?
I'm assuming that PackageKit 0.5.x is a testing branch, just like
GLib 2.21 and GNOME 2.27. Whereas 0.6.x would be API stable, right ?
