We plan to rebase GNOME to the current stable release as we've done before in 7.2. This bug will be used as a tracker for the rebase effort.
I did this already in Copr, however you will find that Evolution will not be buildable. The latest WebKitGTK4 that evolution needs can not be built on gcc 4.8, i tried very hard. I was able to build it just fine on gcc 6.2 on el7, but that defeats the purpose.
If evolution and epiphany are not included in the rebase, the rest will build fine however.
My gnome 3.22 Copr for your perusal to see how I did some items:
What reasons are there to rebase to 3.22 and not 3.24?
We are rebasing to the newest version that has had sufficient testing and validation in a Fedora release. 3.24 is not even released yet.
