Given that I've noticed that "libsocialweb-core" is very keen on
speaking to "r-199-59-148-87.twttr.com" A.K.A twitter on port 443
without me as little as have configured twitter account let alone having
any "online accounts" configured in Gnome which makes one wonder what
the hell they are chatting about I would very much like to know how I
can disable it all together since I cant remove this from my computer
without removing gnomeshell along with it.
Any particular reason why this was not designed to be an
extension/addon/plugin to Gnome3?
Unity has proven to be a huge mis-step for Ubuntu. There is an equal
amount of consternation regarding GNOME3-shell.
I would strongly recommend that Fedora and Red Hat consider using Xfce
as their default desktop.
The majority of Fedora/Red Hat users, use GNOME on a computer
workstation. I think Fedora and Red Hat have to choose which platform
they feel is their niche market: touch pads, or workstations.

A number of GNOME modules have been split upstream, and need to be
packaged for Fedora 17. Thankfully, the results of the splits should be
smaller and more straightforward to package:
gnome-utils has exploded into
gnome-keyring keeps spawning new libraries, the latest one is
seahorse has shed its pgp key sharing component as a standalone
seahorse-sharing module and its nautilus extension as seahorse-nautilus
I'm hoping to find some people who are willing to take on these small
modules - I'll happily do package reviews.
Hey folks - sorry to impose on you again, but we accepted two proposed
blockers in F16 RC3, so we have an RC4 that needs testing. RC4 also
fixes the gdm bug which broke the Xfce spin in RC3. Aside from that, I'd
really just expect RC4 results to be the same as RC3, but since RC4
touches kernel, gdm and dracut, we'd better double-check!
You can get RC4 here:
and the results page is here:
Please help out if you can. One way or another this is definitely the
last rush job this go-round: either we approve RC4 at the go/no-go
tomorrow afternoon, or we slip a week, which would at least give us lots
of time to complete testing...but let's not do that! :)
