Anybody know what is wrong with the Gnome designers lately?  Did they 
have a massive change in management or turnover in maintainers?

It seems strange to me they appear to be trying to piss off their main 
constituents in favor of tablet users.

So one guy is wreaking this havoc?

I'm just curious if any of you guys know the back story on this, because 
I'd be interested in knowing why I've had to go through all these pains
