Day: GNOME OS

Not that I think the GNOME OS is such a stellar idea but it's not too stupid either. It'll probably be Fedora based, hope that won't piss off any more people :D

And just speaking for myself, I will avoid doing anything in GNOME that would harm our ability to be used in larger software collections. For example, I designed the build system to *not* have any duplicate metadata, and I want things like the devel/runtime split to be standardized upstream, so they can be consumed by all of RPM spec files, debian/rules, bitbake recipes, etc.
