Matthias, please comment in devel (preferred) or anaconda-devel list,
so we don't split the discussion among X lists. This was just a call
for desktop SIG members.
I know your opinion and I know you disapprove. OTOH all the other
people (maybe with a single other exception) see it as an
improvement, and I tend to believe we make Fedora for the people.
We don't want to ship extensions to gnome-shell.
That's why I send out this call, to have more desktop-related
comment on this, not just your single voice. I'd like to know what
"we" in your sentence means. I don't want to offend you in any way,
but my current impression is that you're taking stance of a desktop
designer purist, who doesn't want to admit this is situation where
an exception to your guidelines needs to be made. I know you're
putting hard work into GNOME and I'm glad for it, but in this
particular case I think you're just not seeing it through the
Nobody said we didn't want to make changes to gnome-shell to fix this particular
problem, but shipping extensions is not the right way to fix this.
I don't try to avoid anything, the discussion is very public
why I ask everyone to follow on that devel thread), but F17 deadline
is nearing and I don't want to miss it.
