freedesktop.org is not a GNOME front or such; we are a truly
multi-environment spread, with developers from GNOME, KDE (for one, I
have a KDE CVS account, although I do not actively work on it), and many
other desktop environments, including XFce, developers of various window
managers, and whathaveyou.

It is not, and will not be, a GNOME developers' club.
