Re: My thoughts on fallback mode


Thanks for your perspective. What you say makes sense, and matches up
well with what I think.

My suggestion is that Jon, yourself & anyone else actively working
towards GNOME 3 state clearly that you're not going to spend any time on
panel applets, but if there are people who bring it up to standard
before some deadline, that there are no objections to shipping them.
Best of both worlds - if the work doesn't get done, I guess they weren't
important enough. If the work gets done, then obviously they were.
