Gnome Not even GNOME itself could ignore the GNOME 3 criticism for much longer. "As part of the planning for the DropOrFixFallbackMode feature, we've decided that we will compile a list of supported gnome-shell extensions. This will be a small list, focused on just bringing back some central 'classic' UX elements: classic alt tab, task bar, min/max buttons, main menu. To ensure that these extensions keep working, we will release them as a tarball, just like any other module."

I believe that you're mistaken. I may not contribute code since I do not have the skillset. But I definitely contribute financially to projects that help me personally and within my place of employment. I also encourage my management to contribute financially to projects that the company depends on. And as such a contributor to a project, if the project, strays too far away from my use cases, then I will abandon all contributions in favor for a project that does. When enough users that financially contribute to a project leave, then the project dies. Since the Gnome project is user-centric, and deals heavily in the user experience, shouldn't the bulk of users have input in the project? This would be wise if they either financially contribute directly, or by proxy.
