- Distros like getting their own bug reports, so either they'd have to
rewire bug-buddy to report bugs to their system (which is probably a
good idea, but the only distributor who has done any of that work is
Ximian), or turn off all GNOME Project bug reporting entirely
- To hide the idea of "GNOMEness", much in the same way Red Hat hid the
"About KDE..." menu item in every KDE app. Not saying this is a good
thing, just pointing out that it happens. :-)

I agree, but I can understand why distros think differently.
