    I've seen that "Work in progress" also and I know that can mean anything
    (available today, tomorrow, next year). Don't treat my reply too serious, I
    just think "promised" was too demanding.
    :-)

    In most cases things go relatively quick into one of the more official
    repos. I can understand that this needs a few days. Anyway for me it is too
    early to jump on that train. Until now I still do not see what benefits
    Gnome 3 will bring me. What I have seen and read earlier (the discussions
    I've seen on the web) did not convince me that I will belong to the target
    audience of Gnome 3.
    But let's see, over the time I also adopted KDE4 and needed more than two
    years to overcome this cultural shock.

    So we can see from caf list of repos that the GNOME3 repo point to a folder owned by Frederic Crozat, the one responsible of the GNOME 3 LiveCD. So, it isn't yet the stable repo announced for next week.

    So, we have to be patient guys...

    I would suggest that patience is a virtue. I tried installing from that
    repo on my test system and it took a zypper dup to get it all installed,
    but now I get the *very helpful* error message:

    "Oh no! Something has gone wrong. Please try logging in again."

    Looks like the version of gnome-shell crashes and respawns too quickly on
    this system. I'm trying to see if it's possible to revert easily.

    Here's the STABLE repo Index of /repositories/GNOME:/STABLE:/3.0/openSUSE_11.4

    Yet a warning is in place. I tried to switch repos, which gave me a lot of dep. errors. Now I know how to go back to where I came from, but it's not my hobby.

    I didn't get dependency errors, but with the unofficial repo I ran into
    the issue I described. Removing the repo and redoing the 'zypper dup'
    reverted things for me.

    Guys, after spending some time with official release of Gnome3 I'm returned back to the KDE, though the new version of GNOME is quite attractive but I miss KDE almost every step. For me KDE 4.6 is more functional, stable, beautiful and configurable.

    I like better CDE, which is far more functional and stable than KDE
