You'd asked for votes from "recent" and/or "active" developers and
CPW, so I'd not responded. But I think my name's still in the box.
Anyway, we originally said 3 years as something of a compromise
between the level of support that RedHat (and, often, but not as
reliably, Debian) provides in the form of distro support for old
versions, and the very real need to use newer functions.
In the old gtk1 tree, we required 1.2.x where x did have a specific
minimum, I just do not remember it. I think it entirely reasonable to
discontinue support for very ancient versions of glib, but I think,
minimally, we ought to compile on an out of the box debian stable and
out of the box most recent rhel. I don't know off the top of my head
what versions these would be.
I think it absolutely critical that we get feedback from our packagers
before any final decision is made.
