I am looking to do is update Gnome applications without updating all of gnome to 3.x using the gnome3-team/gnome3 PPA.
What i want specifically is to update Gedit, Nautilus, Movie Player etc. past 2.x, (And have them continue updating) but I don't want Gnome 3, per se. I'm not sure if I just need a list of packages to blacklist that would take away from my Gnome 2.x goodness, or if there is a way to only update certain packages from the gnome 3 PPA.
If its relevant, I am using Mint 11 (That's why i have gnome 2.x in the first place), but if that makes a difference, it would be the first time.
I realize that I'm trying to have the cake and eat it too, but bear with me.
