Personally, I wouldn’t see the point of a separate spin if it boils down to a meta-package with some dependencies that differ from the default seed. If GNOMEbuntu then go all the way.
One advantage would be that I would again be able to pester the Gnome developers upstream in a timely manner. Right now the delta is too large (see, e.g., nautilus, gnome-control-center, gnome-settings-daemon, gnome-shell)

Well,I am running Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal Pure 100% Gnome Edition with no traces of Unity and it's not from any developer.You can do this yourself in say less than 20 minutes.It actually runs smoother than Unity graphics ways,could i say more stable,so smooth it looks like a finished product but Gnome still brings new things everyday.From Stinger:
Does anyone know if there is any development going on for a pure Gnome edition of 12.10?
Note:This is not just Gnomeshell over Unity.It is Gnome 3.5.90 Latest stable,the Beta is at 3.6.0
By adding the ricotz/testing and ricotz/staging ppa to quantal and installing gdm be enough to test this out? Should I also remove unity and is their any other ppa's I should add? How's the general stability
1-sudo apt-get install gdm gnome-shell synaptic deborphan (offcourse select gdm)
2-sudo apt-get remove unity unity-2d unity-2d-common unity-2d-panel unity-2d-shell unity-2d-spread unity-asset-pool unity-common unity-lens-applications unity-lens-files unity-lens-music unity-lens-video unity-scope-musicstores unity-scope-video-remote unity-services indicator-messages indicator-status-provider-mc5 appmenu-qt appmenu-gtk appmenu-gtk3 lightdm unity-greeter overlay-scrollbar zeitgeist zeitgeist-core zeitgeist-datahub activity-log-manager-common activity-log-manager-control-center
3-sudo apt-get autoremove
4-sudo reboot (choose Gnome at login)
5-sudo apt-get purge `deborphan`
6-sudo dpkg --purge `dpkg -l | egrep "^rc" | cut -d' ' -f3`
7-sudo apt-get autoremove
8-sudo apt-get autoclean
We will then have a clean Ubuntu 12.10 and distilled, with only Gnome.
I hope the Mods fellows here don't start getting upset.Thank You.
