Hi Marcus,

One of MATE packages is a fork of gnome-keyring;

Does MATE fork various GNOME packages (needlessly?), because this looks
pretty much like gnome-keyring?

MATE, and Cinnamon differ from standard Gnome, sometimes subtle,
sometimes stark.

Yes Gnome and Cinnamon / Mate base on GTK, but so does LXDE.

AFAIK Cinnamon / Mate try to implement the look and feel of
Gnome2/GTK2+ but base on GTK3.

So far they try NOT to use any Gnome-Libs.

The forking of the Apps and Widgets was not needlessly, but to get
the dependencies on Gnome-Libs out of them.

And the upstream Gnome-Devs would in no way support that kind of
shism internally.
