Gnome In a recent interview with the Austrian newssite derStandard.at, GNOME designer Jon McCann talks about GNOME OS, the consequences of Canonical leaving GNOME behind, the purported removal of features and the future role of Linux distributions. "I think there was a time when GNOME had kind of a crisis, we didn't know where we wanted to go, we were lacking goals and vision - that was the end of the GNOME2 cycle. So we pulled together and formed a vision where we want to go - and actually did something about it. And now we have been marching on that plan for quite some time."

I fail to see what your reply has to do with my post.

The person who's feature got taken out is not a newcomer to gnome at least to his own account -- I am not familiar with the gnome devs.

I also did not say that none cares.
Obviously the person who wrote the blog entry I linked to cared, as well those who responded to his enquire. Though as far as I understood none involved in the decision to take the feature out answered.

Yet at least one of these persons still spreads in the public that the code was bad without any prove.

How does that fit together?
