GNOME 3.17.2 unstable tarballs due

Hello all, Tarballs are due on 2015-05-25 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.17.2 unstable release, which will be delivered on Wednesday. Modules which were proposed for inclusion should try to follow the unstable schedule so everyone can test them. Please make sure that your tarballs will be uploaded before Monday 23:59 UTC: tarballs uploaded later than that will probably be too late to get in 3.17.2.
