This is your view but don't think that it the the Fedora Project' view.
One of our core values[1] is to defends, promote and develop Freedom.
This is not because one proprietary software as a specific feature
implemented that we should use and promote it. No, we should look for
an open alternative or try to develop this feature in an existing open
tool.
If you still use this proprietary software, you should not promote it
under the Fedora Project.
Of course many people are using google products. But team management
under the Fedora Project as to deal with open source software. We just
can't promote A when we use B instead.

Moreover, you would probably like our new website[2] who highlights:
 "We believe in the value of free software, and fight to protect and
promote solutions anyone can use and redistribute. Not only is the
Fedora operating system made from free software, but we use free
software exclusively to provide it to you."
I really like "we use free software exclusively to provide it to you".

As Fedora Ambassador, we should really care about our core values.
