Disclosure:  I am the maintainer of Gnote in Fedora. 

Not sure where there is a conflict between promoting FOSS and
highlighting Gnote?  Gnote is default in Fedora because Fedora Live CD
couldn't accommodate Mono apps within the space we had.  Since Gnote
provided equivalent functionality without occupying much space,  it was
picked as default.  We highlight what we have as default better than
what we merely include in the repository.   Tomboy continues to be
available and maintained by the Fedora desktop team in Fedora.
