>Facilitating the unrestricted use of extensions and themes by end users seems contrary to the central tenets of the GNOME 3 design.
>I agree with Allan. I am really concerned about this effort to encourage and sanction themes and extensions.

Who is that designer and when was that quoted coming? Has anyone here gone reading and consulting what those group mean? It is very easy to take what was written on mail list out of context.
The person who wrote that quote could change his/her mind.

Allan Day and William Jon McCann in a discussion on whether or not to set up extensions.gnome.org.

If you did a research about Allan Day (https://live.gnome.org/AllanDay), you would realize he is a designer, not GTK+ developer/maintainer (Ben Otte is)specializing in theme. Now that extensions.gnome.org is reality, his quote and McCann's you posted are irrelevant.

If you could read You would see that I called him a designer. I'll leave this be as you are obviously incapable of discussing any of the issues with Gnome 3 whether it be regressions or the attitudes of the design and development team.

A designer still has to convince a maintainer. They don't have free reign. They didn't like the whole extension idea from the start. They didn't like that the extensions module existed, they didn't like the creation of extensions.gnome.org, etc.

Btw: Please leave out personal insults from this site.
