Now, to set some logic straight:

It is not. It is about the perception in the KDE community
that it is not treated fairly.

Well, many different arguments have been put for this change; but IMHO
doing this to salve a KDE community perception problem is perhaps the
lamest rational I've heard.

To fix a fairness perception problem in the KDE community, by simply
transferring it to the GNOME community (exacerbating their existing
perception of not being treated fairly in other areas) doesn't seem like
progress to me.

Indeed, are there not other, more constructive ways to improve people's
perception of openSUSE ? Do you not agree that the immediate perception
problem can be in part addressed by a more fair ordering (based on
popularity), and more helpful descriptive text explaining that ?
