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.

Can I get a clarification?

Suppose that the appindicator devs evangelized it to GNOME developers and got a bunch of them to add support to their apps for the next release. After that release it could be said that things in GNOME use it, so would a proposal to include it as an external dependency then be appropriate?

It seems like the process is to get it used first, then to propose it as part of the platform. Am I right about this?
