How should I read the summary? Fallback in 3.6 or not? Initially I
thought keep still in 3.6, but re-reading the discussion I think
everyone meant keep in 3.4, gone in 3.6?

Anyone know how difficult it is to keep fallback a bit longer? At the
moment not a lot of distributions have shipped GNOME 3 for long. So I
wonder if we're moving too fast.

Also, any point in being clear that gnome-panel+gnome-applets will still
be around, the only change is that we don't support it? Then clarify why
that is. I know the two modes are messy for various parts, but would be
nice to have this documented so it is a bit more factual so others more
easily understand.

Think we should also send a summary to devel-announce-list, once
everyone agrees on the message. Would love to get input of more
distributions (fedora, opensuse, mageia, etc). Difficulty that some have
not provided GNOME 3 yet (mageia, mint).
