Just thinking out loud here
Since the new GNOME Classic session is in no way related to the "Flashback" sessions I think I should rename this thread once again.
My thought is that the new GNOME Classic session is no more closely related to the "Flashback" sessions than MATE or Cinnamon. So I'm thinking of changing the name to "Trusty GNOME Flashback sessions".
To take things a step further, once again just thinking out loud, I wonder why we Flashback devotees are relying on GNOME dev in any way?
Consider this example (read the replies from Matthias Clasen):
It's almost apparent that GNOME dev not only dropped internal support for 'gnome-panel' and 'metacity', but that they're more than willing to set up roadblocks to prevent Debian and Ubuntu dev from achieving that goal
So I'm thinking that we should move our entire movement away from GNOME and onto either Ubuntu or Debian resources .............. including the mailing list!
Please share your thoughts
