release will be, and there's no harm in pushing unstable versions so
that they get testing. That's not the case with gthumb. I'm confused why
they're not following the GNOME release cycle, but that's their choice,
and the reasonable consequence is that they get less testing in rawhide
so we don't have to gamble on whether or not we'll need to do a
downgrade and +epoch or choose to leave it unstable.

said we should not ship 3.3. Anyway, this vindicates the WG's choice to
stick with Shotwell for the time being, as gthumb 3.2 really is a huge
