Loads of distribution people are involved within GNOME. The only
problems occur with distributions which do not have the resources, or
actively prefer working outside of GNOME (e.g. Canonical, Mandriva at
the moment).

Pretty sure Fedora and openSUSE is fully aware of what the intend is.

Some distributions might not be aware yet, but things are still under

collection of components.
Distributions can still change things as they wish, but that is not our
