Hello Iain, or anyone else affected,

Accepted gnome-shell into disco-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-shell/3.32.2-2ubuntu1~ubuntu19.04.1 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation on how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested and change the tag from verification-needed-disco to verification-done-disco. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-disco. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance for helping!

N.B. The updated package will be released to -updates after the bug(s) fixed by this package have been verified and the package has been in -proposed for a minimum of 7 days.

As a part of the Stable Release Updates quality process a search for Launchpad bug reports using the version of gnome-shell from disco-proposed was performed and bug 1835420 was found. Please investigate this bug report to ensure that a regression will not be created by this SRU. In the event that this is not a regression remove the "verification-failed-disco" tag from this bug report and add the tag "bot-stop-nagging" to bug 1835420 (not this bug). Thanks!

This SRU has now been removed from -proposed due to the failed verification. However, the referenced regression looks like it has been root-caused to mutter rather than gnome-shell, so it's possible this SRU is actually ok to release (possibly only after a fixed mutter has been uploaded). If so, please comment on this bug with the appropriate details and ask an SRU team member on IRC to resurrect this package.

Yes, GNOME shell 3.32.2 is not strictly dependent on the mutter 3.32.2 snpashot (3.32.2+git20190626-1ubuntu1~19.04.1) nor 3.32.2 as the changes included are just fixes not depending on mutter itself.

These are the changes involved:

So, while mutter should not upgraded, gnome-shell can safely be resurrected.

The verification of the Stable Release Update for gnome-shell has completed successfully and the package has now been released to -updates. Subsequently, the Ubuntu Stable Release Updates Team is being unsubscribed and will not receive messages about this bug report. In the event that you encounter a regression using the package from -updates please report a new bug using ubuntu-bug and tag the bug report regression-update so we can easily find any regressions.
