He's a developer and he says what he works upon and what not.

People are always free to hack on other things, as what has been stated
multiple times. The focus for GNOME 3 is clear, if you want to do
something else, feel free. I am saying this as a release-team and
sysadmin member, so, really, feel free.

That said, if you want to participate in an existing project, you'll
have to follow why goals of the maintainer. They will sometimes have
different goals.

Arguing that developers such as Emmanuele should focus on your wishes
can be done, but please keep in mind that you'll need to convince
someone. E.g. annoying them or calling them arrogant is not helpful.
Especially when their goal/intention is just different.

intentions even when there are conflicting views)
