Hi everyone,

Since I have joined in July 2013 to Ubuntu GNOME until this very moment,
users never stop complaining about the fact that Ubuntu GNOME can not
include the latest GNOME release and I have explained that many many times.
The last time I did that was:

No matter how many times we keep repeating ourselves, this is just a
bad/unhappy news to our users.

I am writing to you after I have seen so many negative feedback here:

Is there anything whatsoever we could do? GNOME foundation and Ubuntu
Release Team could work more closely, maybe? is there something I/we are
not aware of? sorry to assume that - just trying to think the same way our
users think - but is it because Ubuntu moved to Unity and left GNOME behind
as not the default DE? can we find a way around that? maybe an official
statement from Ubuntu Release Team? anything that could reduce the

Yes. I know pleasing 'everyone' is a key to failure and Yes, I know we have
PPA to use the latest GNOME but this is just not good enough for the users.

What I am trying to do here is to exceed people/users expectation. I do
care about this a lot.

As a member of GNOME and as a Non-Technical Leader of Ubuntu GNOME, I wish
we could discuss about it :)

Many thanks!

I am NOT a developer. I have contacted OMG Ubuntu to correct this but it
seems they have not done that yet. I am sending to this email with a copy
to Ubuntu GNOME main Developer, Tim.
