Hmm not sure which 'team' you are referring to, but as part of the gnome 
port/package team on OpenBSD I can tell you this isn't true for us. We 
are currently working on gnome3 but gnome2 is still what is shipped; 
once gnome3 is working ok enough we will switch completely. Offering 
both desktops is just not a viable option because it'll be a 
maintainance nightmare, especially wrt dependent packages.

AFAIK gnome3 on FreeBSD is still being worked on as well, in their 
development repo and hasn't made it to their official ports yet.

As for NetBSD (pkgsrc), there is no sign of gnome3 yet (but I'm not 
following them very closely).
