I would like to propose a RFE for Fedora Workstation. I think what Fedora Workstation, or GNOME in general, really misses is some support for tray icons. There are many applications that do not work properly when having no tray icon. Nowadays, tray icons are mostly implemented using an AppIndicator standard made by Canonical and supported in GNOME using the "KStatusNotifierItem/AppIndicator Support" Shell Extension also made by Canonical and packaged in Fedora as gnome-shell-extension-appindicator. This extension is preinstalled out-of-box in Ubuntu. In KDE, AppIndicators are supported out-of-box.

Is there a place I could send a RFE to add the gnome-shell-extension-appindicator package to base Fedora Workstation installation or is this e-mail sufficient? No out-of-box support for tray icons is a big minus for Fedora in my opinion.
