Why not simply stop this fruitless discussion ( interestingly enough nobody spoke up when suseROCKs brought up the topic in last opensuse-gnome meeting )
I agree on stopping it here. Just don't assume again on the reasons who didn't make people participate to the meetings. You don't really know them. Thanks.
and rather add an entry to the WIKI based on Vuntz's reply to this thread and, maybe, some real, hard facts on GNOME and it's differences among distributions.
It's what I asked since the beginning.
