It is to expect that both GNOME and Fedora will want to throw their weight of
devs and users/testers behind GNOME 3.
But the very early reviews are mostly ranging from confusion to negative.

I remember long time ago I was a fan of KDE, but KDE started deteriorating,
and with KDE 4 it was over for me.
I switched to GNOME and actually liked it progressively. Also, there is a lot
of GNOME tools, utilities, and advanced applications.

There is a danger that in case of an abrupt GNOME 2 phaseout, many users and
add-on devs would be lost. The damage could affect some distros as well.
I hope that both GNOME and Fedora projects take this into consideration.
There is a big and painful lesson to learn from KDE 4 debacle.

So, I am wondering if Fedora takes into consideration providing GNOME 2 as
well (in parallel) with F15 and for some time beyond ?
Is there any official statement by Fedora with regard to that ?
