I haven't seen an app menu (gmenu) discussion in quite some time, which

written for GNOME 3.4, and there seem to be some issues and
inconsistencies with the implementation throughout the project.

I've been using GNOME all that time and I'd never noticed them.

  This seems backward. F-f-m was here first, and is still being used by some

restated as ”finding creative solutions for things that used to work”, i.e. things
that were already working, were ”solved”.
