But would't you like to have the points you disagree with
be discussed or reevaluated?
I think this is the issue the community is facing. There
is a difference between "We are going to do it like that
because we think its right, and that is how it is gonna be"
and "We are doing it like that because we think it is right,
but we are open for discussion"
Right now the Shell developers are somewhere between both
stand points. I know some developers who were able to
cooperate with them. But I think more transparency around
discussions and evaluations are missing.
Just a quick note regarding the design procedures here.
From my experience, Jon and Jeremy hang out both hang out in
#gnome-design all day and are publically discussing all design
issues there (even down to the smallest details).
Me, Hylke, Garrett, Jakub and others have all been giving feedback,
drawing mockups and evaluating designs, even though, as always, Jon
and Jeremy have been doing most of the job (as us others have other
day jobs and priorities).
This would be a good FAQ. We really do need a gnome-shell FAQ I think. I might help out on the whole community thing on shell if people are willing, it depends on whether this six month project I'm on comes to a close. My contributions have tapered off due to a high work and personal load.
