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.

This is not a compelling problem statement. No user ever had a problem because notifications didn’t use D-Bus.


I think you may have missed the point of this quote. Dave isn't talking about collaboration. Instead, he's talking about how to write a good specification, which starts with defining the problem statement.

Dave is saying, in a slightly humorous way, that "Notifications don't use D-Bus" is not a proper problem statement. I completely agree.

Did you understand what he wrote differently than I did?
