Bug#684584: gnome-shell: README.Debian completely outdated

Package: gnome-shell
Version: 3.4.2-1
Severity: important
Tags: patch

The current README.Debian is from 2009 which talks about non-existing
--xephyr option and meant to be used under GNOME2.  This is better to be
removed for wheezy release.

Since many people will be looking for POWER-OFF menu, it may be even
better idea to put an updated content aiming to address these via
extension packages and URL links.

I think it is important to release wheezy with something along attached
patch on README.Debian for GNOME shell to give peace of mind for many
GNOME3 uses.


PS:  I was defector to XFce at one point and came back to GNOME after
3.4.  With many extension installed, it is as productive as GNOME2
days.  (I still see frozen keyboard input, though ...  This may be IM
problem... OMG my problem ....)
