I want to try gnome-shell 3.5 but I dont see it in the repos, I'm using Fedora 17, is there any way adding gnome-shell 3.5 to my repos?

Regards

Update:

Please note the question was asked on Aug 2012. Now i'm using Fedora 18 with gnome-shell 3.6 as on 29th jan 2013. what I meant was how to install the latest from gnome-development. I see that as of today GNOME shell 3.7 something is the latest but Fedora has 3.6 in its repos. Thats what my question is about, how to get the latest.

Do you want the latest or 3.5? –  Simon Hoare Jan 29 '13 at 11:57

What is in the Fedora repos (particularly update) is the latest. You might try koji, where freshly built packages are uploaded. What you find there goes from failed builds through utterly broken packages all the way to the update that is being pushed for distribution right now. Definitely not recommended, but hey, Unix is all about giving the user enough rope to shoot their feet.

You could try Fedora 18, but that one currently has gnome-shell-3.6.2-6.fc18. Or dive into rawhide (rolling updates with the very latest stuff that hasn't exploded on first run).

The latest gnome can be found at http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/ Be aware that it has not been tested with Fedora. Have fun –  midnightsteel Jan 29 '13 at 13:25
