Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y If you were, you know, living your lives, you've probably missed it, but old fires are burning brightly once again: there's somewhat of a falling-out going on between KDE and GNOME, with Canonical siding squarely with... KDE. The issue seems to revolve around GNOME's lack of collaboration, as explained by KDE's Aaron Seigo.

The KDE folks did and Canonical had examples of apps patched to use libappindicator. Gnome Shell folks appeared to have objections then went effectively incommunicado.

I won't dwell on the negative though. This particular problem is likely fixable. It is just a symptom of what has been a growing problem of inadequate or ineffective collaboration within the FOSS DE community, GNOME included. That problem is rather more important to address.
