Gnome The future of GNOME - an interesting subject. GNOME 3 has been out and about for a while, and it hasn't exactly been a smashing success. One of the efforts to take GNOME to the next level is what the team refers to as GNOME OS - but in reality, it's a set of improvements to GNOME that are just as interesting to GNOME-the-desktop-environment.

They're losing developers, maybe making it easier for people who's ideas are more inline with and excited about the project is just what they need.

Because they reject any change that does not fit into their little vision. So basically people see that there is no point in joining such a closed group.

Some of the bug reports just make me cry:
Somebody reports a bug (an existing feature was being removed/made crazy), fairly detailed and something that should have been addressed. Instead he gets told he is being abusive and shouted down (probably so they wouldn't have to rationalise their decisions).

It seems to me that they really don't want contributors to their project.

This:
Attract new developers

Isn't going to happen until they fix their attitude...
