Will I be able to switch to Gnome-Shell in 11.04?

I was just wondering if the GNOME SHELL (Not Gnome 3 and GTK3) will be in the ubuntu repos in 11.04. I know it is in the repositories for 10.10, but it quite outdated. I like Unity and Gnome Shell, and have spent time using both, but I just went back to 10.10 from 11.04 as Unity and compiz keep crashing on alpha 3. I was just wondering if the Shell would be in the 11.04 repositories for release?

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

If it is not in the main repository somebody will build a PPA and might I add the unity is not quite complete yet and will probably be better with stability when it is deemed complete. – Reuben Swartz Mar 21 '11 at 23:56

No, it will not. Unity is there to replace Gnome shell.

That doesn't mean that someone will not provide a ppa to install Gnome shell, though.
