AFAIK, Ubuntu is still not ready for the whole GTK3+ shift (it's supposed to be for natty+1) and proposing a recent gnome-shell package would break a lot of applications, so for the time being, a PPA is the way to go.

Instead of saying Ubuntu is not ready, we should say that GNOME3 and GTK+3 isn't ready for Ubuntu, as they are still unstable. – Oxwivi Feb 22 '11 at 16:23
@Toki I edited your comment. Mind your language here please. – Oli Feb 22 '11 at 16:40
What? I see exactly the same commented I posted. – Oxwivi Feb 22 '11 at 17:03
@Toki It wasn't a big edit. You swore in the original version. It might seem petty but we try to keep the site as clean as possible. – Oli Feb 23 '11 at 0:15
The mailing list information was perfect, thank you – Seth Hikari Feb 23 '11 at 0:52
