As Fedora is the only current GNU/Linux distribution adapting GNOME 3.0

I think everyone is encouraged to work towards making GNOME work to
meet their needs, as with any free software.  As long as patches
can be kept manageable and under control, then I do not foresee any
serious problems.

And how would you facilitate collaborations with Ubuntu, especially,
despite the different viewpoints of developers on issues like GNOME
Shell vs. Unity?

The GNOME Foundation already does work to encourage discussion
between important contributors.  There are a lot of topics to consider
and discuss surrounding GNOME Shell and Unity and other technologies
based on GNOME.  I am sure this will be a big focus over the next year
and beyond.  At any rate, I think that Unity and GNOME Shell share
enough infrastructure that there should be no serious concern that we
will stop collaborating.
