   Be aware that a significant number of gnome devs are @ RH  ... not
sure what the politics is but the gap between upstream and fedora is not
as great as may appear sometimes - much like systemd  ... and previous
calls to re-consider the default DE have met with rather a lot of
silence so far ... or suggestions to file bugs, contribute patches or
perhaps even become a gnome dev. Not once that I recall has the response
been sure - lets make KDE the default DE ...

  That saod. I'd be delighted, albeit surprised,  if any progress was
made on this front.
