fair enough. but on other side it is hard to find any _documented_
information about the design decisions. gnome shell design wiki
page is very generic. you could stop some of the discussions
just by referring to some gep or whatever.

imho, above would be much better, than developers proposing to detach
themselves from the users and testers even more. yes we invest
our time into the software too and to invest more time people need to
understand why something is better. it seems, that gnome currently
has problem communicating that.
