The last discussion of this that I can recall started here:
What's needed is for someone to adopt all of the GNOME components and maintain
them. As you'll see in the discussion I cited, I briefly considered updating
only glib2 and a few others, but then I decided that I wasn't willing to take
the responsibility of fixing/updating other components that broke as a result of
this. So I pushed what I had done and left it there.
It would be great if someone would step up and take over, but I'm not in a
position to do that myself.
