I know, GNOME 3 is very controversial and not accepted by everyone. *But* powerful alternatives exist. If KDE isn´t your type too, there´s Xfce which should work almost like GNOME 2. Btw, Linux Mint does a GNOME 3 fork which will look like GNOME 2.x but will use GNOME 3 infrastructure, maybe someone will package it for openSUSE too, so that you can use that instead of plain GNOME 3.
Lets hope they do.
I'm not sure who you expect in this case who 'they' will be. Mint Linux for sure does. If you look at openSUSE, then the gnome team is very unlikely going to pick up that task. Gnome3 is big enough a stack to take care of (I think there was a stat mentioning something like 20% of packages in oS:Factory to be maintained by the gnome folks). It would be a perfect opportunity to step up and take on the task if you feel so badly about G3. Step up, take care of it! Package it (rpm packaging is not much more difficult than building and installing from source tarballs).
