Just a couple of issues that were brought forward from the latest Owners
and (Co) Maintainers Email Meeting that require some public opinion
regarding future action(s).

There's no doubt whether we like it or not, the Gnome-Shell will be
implemented as the replacement and default desktop environment for
Fedora including its Spin Desktops, somewhere along the line.

Personally, I'm no fan of the Gnome-Shell (Gnome 3), hence my own
complete migration to the KDE4 desktop environment in the previous

I am curious as to how Gnome-Shell is going to affect the Spins? ie.
Design Suite Spin.

Will it affect performance and productivity?
And how much control do we have in blocking it for a desktop spin?
And should we be blocking it?


Inkscape desktop icon:

I am not happy with the current process of having a Inkscape icon and
link on the desktop upon a fresh install of the Design Suite Spin.

To me, it simply does not make sense and poses more questions that what
it answers.

It's easy enough to remove using the kickstart config. But before I go
and do that, I require the opinions of others.
