Sometimes we might write things here that are totally wrong. Unfortunately this is unavoidable for easily understood reasons. But there is a way to fix it. We’re starting these “Ooops.. We were wrong” posts to correct our mistakes.
The cause for starting this was the “Hey, We got a brand new System Settings?!?” post which was fault. Jacub Steiner let us a kinda angry comment, but who can blame him? I screwed up on this. I contact him and he explained me:
“You’re watching a repository where we invegistigare possible directions, trying to find a useful UI pattern for a specific functionality. None of this is a even proposal yet. Posting a random one as a news item is hurting the GNOME project as you’re making it sound like it’s a goal and each going a different direction. It’s not. The two mockups you posted were a setup to mock up transition animation for a modal. Nothing else.”
Till I correct it, the post had over 1500 views and some blogs also re-print us. So I felt that I had to make a new post.
Also on post “Gnome’s Hell and Lamborghinis | Part One“ David Edmundson a KDE developer told us that we FUD against KDE. That wasn’t actually a mistake but a personal opinion on KDE project that I said is lacking prospect and support. Ok, I might be over reacted but that doesn’t mean I hate KDE or anything. I just wrote what is happening maybe in an unpolished way. Well, apologies on this.
We are happy that we have lot of people and apparently lot of developers and if we are mistaken somewhere please let us a comment and we’re going to fix things into a new post.
