thanks Shaun for your reply, unfortunatly looks like who decides everything for GNOME Project are the Design team or the RedHat employees and not the community.
Please, can we not finger specific companies when you write this? There isn't some cabal out there. It' shard for me to start taking anything seriously after the eye rolling after seeing this statement.
do you really want to start talking about what the community think about this ? Because if you want to start talking i recommend to see how many threads we have, specially on gnome-shell ml, about design decisions that makes the community powerless against the almighty Design Team. I don't want to point fingers to companies which i have much to thank for their hard work, specially their developers, but it's too much coincidence to have all these design decisions from the same people to go against all the community and also to developers who want to share their work with the GNOME Project "just because it's not planned on the Design Team".
This makes me belive that the community no longer has the power to decide anything that aren't the way that the designers planned, please don't do the same as the projects you always criticise!
See Alan's mail in this thread.
Now talking about Zeitgeist

Your previous email seems to indicate that the features for 3.6 are
already a foregone conclusion, and that Zeitgeist doesn't fit into
that. But that just can't be, because WE the GNOME community decide
what's in the next version right here on d-d-l during the proposal
