  • Address the identity crisis regarding "GNOME Applications", probably by addressing the Bindings vs Platform thing (will have to wait until there's consensus within the actual project for this one)

Adwaita[edit]

I see it has been proposed to merge Adwaita (theme) into GNOME, but I cannot find any discussion about it. I'd do it immediatly, as Adwaita is currently composed of two lines of text and three photos, and I can't imagine how much more space such a subject would need...--Foelering (talk) 10:47, 6 July 2015 (UTC)

Agree. Too short to be a separate article.--216.186.185.230 (talk) 18:45, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

GNOME and Debian[edit]

Debian, a Linux distribution that had historically used GNOME 2, switched to XFCE when GNOME 3 was released. However, Debian developers are planning to switch back to GNOME 3 with their next release.

That part is clearly outdated – the “next release” probably refers to Debian 8 “Jessie”, which was released almost 4 months ago.

However, I’m not sure what I should replace it with, since I can’t find where Debian switched to XFCE… according to the Debian 7 release notes, that version also contained GNOME 3. —Galaktos (talk) 10:47, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

Xfce was only default for a trial period and only for the development version (sid). It never was default in a proper release version. I suggest simply removing that. --KAMiKAZOW (talk) 23:26, 16 August 2015 (UTC)
