Gnome "Clement Lefebvre, the Linux Mint founder, has started working on a GNOME Shell fork called Cinnamon, which tries to offer a layout similar to GNOME 2, with emphasis on 'making users feel at home and providing them with an easy to use and comfortable desktop experience'. Among the features that we'll probably see in Cinnamon are GNOME2-like notifications and systray icons, option to change the panel position and other panel options like autohide, etc. Some of these features are already available through Mint GNOME Shell Extensions (MGSE), but their functionality is pretty limited."

Sorry but the GNOME Foundation Board does not dictate technical direction for the project, the Release Team does. The Foundation Board also doesn't dictate design, the design team does.

The Foundation Board is for other things and project direction (weirdly enough) is not one of them.
