    Re: GNOME3 Staging PPA

    Thank you for your hard work and i agree GNOME still has quite a few followers and Ubuntu currently still is GNOME based distro in my opinion. GNOME will have to rethink some stuff about GnomeShell:

    http://www.h-online.com/open/news/it...7-1887469.html

    Because there are no big players backing it up (stock GnomeShell) ATM anymore and then i think it will become more popular again and if that happens things will get a bit easier again!

    Thanks Jeremy, for all the work you've done to get Ubuntu Gnome off the ground.

    Somebody always rises to the top, then... Boom! They're gone. Think I'd be used to it, by now.

    Didn't mean to get all melodramatic. It just slipped out.

    Good luck to you, man! Wish you well...

That needs more investigation and testing to find out what specific scenarios work and don't work with Nautilus 3.6 and then with Nautilus 3.8. No one has volunteered to do that.
    2. The Ubuntu developers and designers would like for there to be a nice New Document entry in the right-click menu.
    The main issue here with 3.8 is that the unity7/compiz & file manager not handling the Desktop compo is not presentable, no good at all
    If the 'fix' is coming from the compiz side, well it would be ok when/if it happens.
    (with or without Desktop icons though sure many that use a desktop like to have a Desktop to put things on

    Otherwise could be easier to keep & if needed fix 3.6 till Ubuntu dumps compiz

    Hi Jeremy
    I can understand your decision, but i'll miss your enthusiasm and skills.
    I respect all Tim's hard work for Ubuntu-Gnome but it will not be the same without your input.

    In one of the earlier Ubuntu releases ( I think it was 5.10 or 6.06 ) "Ubuntu" was explained in a video by Nelson Mandela
    Respect, helpfulness, sharing, community, caring, trust, unselfishness.
    and I might add openness.
    Mark, please have a good look in the mirror and repeat the words you once build Ubuntu upon.
    Then get this project back on tracks.

    Heh! How, in the name of heaven, did you find that one?

    Anyway, good job, detective!
