This was a sad day indeed.

The problem, of course, is not the content of the statement itself. It
is the fact that a lot of other tragic events do not deserve a statement
on the Gnome front page. Choosing which news are put on the front page
is a political act.

Obviously, here, the criterion used to decide which news are put there
is "news which affect members of the community". I disagree with this
criterion and would rather use "technical news which affect the
project": it seems to me that there are a lot of other websites which
are dedicated to the Gnome community.

I won't yell at people or make a big deal of this. I just wanted to
raise the issue and, maybe, get a few people to think about it.
