Two members of MATE Desktop Team Nelson Marques and Stefano Karapetsas are now maintainers of GNOME Main Menu in GNOME Git.
GNOME Main Menu’s last version was 0.9.16, committed by Julian Andres Klode 21 months ago. It was pretty much an abandoned module… but not any more!
MATE and GNOME Main Menu
Federico Mena Quintero gave maintainership to Nelson and Stefano:
This is not terribly relevant to Gnome 3, but anyway.
Nelson Marques and Stefano Karapetsas, both from the MATE desktop project, asked to maintain gnome-main-menu. Since we don’t use gnome-main-menu in “official Gnome”, I’ve decided to pass on maintainership to them.
Both Nelson and Stefano have requested git.gnome.org accounts; the code will still live there. I’ll take care of giving them Bugzilla privileges.
Obviously they want to evolve GNOME Main Menu further for use in MATE.
MATE in Fedora 18
MATE is now in Fedora 18 repositories, so people that like GNOME 2 can use Fedora. I haven’t tried MATE because it has a huge number of modules, so I am not in favor of installing it, but the MATE Team runs a very nice page with lots info.
