I've never looked into the issue. Is there a build farm we can use with different versions of linux distros so that we can check the build and limitations? Otherwise, we're limited by what developers and testers have. I suppose VMs could help with this.

Ahh, yeah, like I said, Fedora-7 era. I'm not sure offhand what version
of Gnome Fedora-8 or 9 has, but I would hope that we should support any
distros that were released by, say, May 1, 2008.
My only concern is going to be RHEL/CentOS. The most recent
release/update (5.3) probably still has a relatively old Gnome/Gtk. But
then again RHEL5 is old enough that it doesn't fall into the May 1, 2008
release-by date. So I honestly don't think I care that much about it.
GnuCash 2.2 works there just fine, and someone could backport the
dependencies if they really want to run bleeding-edge gnucash.
So I think we should target Fedora 9 and equivalent Ubuntu and SuSE
releases from early 2008.
