Indeed, I think the Gnome work referred to is Gnome Zeitgeist , and
is scheduled for release as part of 'GNOME 3.0' in a year. Zeitgeist
seems to be the file manager overhaul, but I could swear I remember
people talking about a GNOME olpcfs-ish file versioning system months
back, but can't seem to find any references to this offhand.
