I did not interpret 'drop me aline' as 'send me a personal reply' - Sorry.

He is asking for Sun. Sun is dedicating engineers to do testing on GNOME
which is a good thing!!! They are probably doing this to prioritize apps
for their testing purposes. They will probably file bug reports, do
usability testings, etc. which not many developers do!!! They may also
fix some bugs (but give them time, they are probably still trying to get
oriented to this whole GNOME thing).
I believe we should just stop being paranoid because they are @sun.com -
If they are helping out, then cool!
