Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y And over the weekend, the saga regarding Canonical, GNOME, and KDE has continued. Lots of comments all over the web, some heated, some well-argued, some wholly indifferent. Most interestingly, Jeff Waugh and Dave Neary have elaborated on GNOME's position after the initial blog posts by Shuttleworth and Seigo, providing a more coherent look at GNOME's side of the story.

yes witch hunt is bad but what could GNOME developers do if the effort in course was done privately?

The spec was open and people on the kde side did make sure it was known. Gnome did not have to accept canonicals work, but could have implemented their own version following the spec if they had problems with canonicals implementation. The thing here is that the new gnome systray was developed later and some people had full knowledge that there were working implementations by kde and canonical.
