as not the default DE? can we find a way around that?

Ubuntu GNOME can help the Debian GNOME packaging, and then take those
packages. GNOME 3.14 is already in Debian sid. But maybe some Ubuntu
software will not work well with the latest GTK+.

I think the GNOME Foundation cannot really help.

my 2 cents,


I saw Vincent's presentation once that said that Red Hat hired any
GNOME's contributors.
Please don't see it as Ubuntocentric point of view. Personally I use
openSUSE 13.1. It ships with GNOME 3.10. Our next release will ship
with GNOME 3.14. So I miss one version. Our openSUSE developers made a
repository (just like Ubuntu's PPA) to use GNOME 3.12.

Having said that, let the GNOME developers do their job and all
distros can follow the release cycle.
