So this is all new fancy features...and it makes me wonder: are the ancient problems fixed? As I pointed out in an earlier discussion on this site, Gnome seems to overlook some old bug-reports that go back several years, but that only require a few lines of code (which often is even supplied) to fix.

An example? The window list button text and whether or not [] should be around minimized windows.

In this particular case it seems that its not fixed because no one can decide how it is suppose to work... Is this an issue with Gnome? That issues are not looked at because there are no one to take charge and make decisions about trivial problems?

If it's so easy to fix why don't you help them?

With what? There are plenty of patches proposed already, so no need to do that. The only thing I could help with is make the decision, but since I am not affiliated with Gnome (yet!) I assume they wouldn't let me :p
