I have to say it again: GNOME is late to the party and as such can
only either implement what everyone else already uses or just not
Well you're right, but "just not work" is going to be the answer.
Supporting the existing spec is too controversial -- I see almost no
chance of this happening -- and that means that whatever gets
implemented will have no backwards-compatibility for existing apps. I
think accepting this is the only way to advance design and discussion
for actually implementing a system tray (or comparable functionality);
otherwise we'll remain stuck in a stalemate arguing over the spec.
Anyway, it's not something that's going to be advanced by the Fedora
project on Fedora mailing lists. Fedora is good at pushing forward many
things, but discussions like this need to happen upstream to be
effective. (And we have to get it accepted by Ubuntu too, or whatever
we do will fail, because as long as Ubuntu continues to support
AppIndicator, apps will continue using it regardless of what we do.)
