Since people from "Others" section also got the invitation (like me), I 
wonder, whether the results of the questions regarding making GNOME better and 
the effort taken into GNOME may become a bit inapropriate, as those aren't 
actually doing that (their software is not shipped with GNOME).

Or does GNOME in  this case mean GNOME + software meant for GNOME-using 
people? Just wondering.
