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."

Why would they have to be accepted by them? Anyone can use them on their on source tree and make the code public.

Its called Duplication of effort and Only you running your specific variant of GNOME.

You don't seem to get it. The whole reason of Open Source Licenses, especially the GPL.

Go ahead and make your stuff and compile it... and take all the effort and put it into your build and when they deprecate your "feature" you depend on... have a merry day.

I'm sorry, you are the very reason GNOME is in the state it is in, you just "do it yourself" and duplicate and waste your effort and not try to get things done rather than *REDONE*.

Glad you are not working for me or the company I work for, you'd immediately be unable to deal with our 4 layer stack. Since you'd "have to redo it all by yourself" and you work would *NEVER* get merged back in to the Production Branch. *EVER*.
