Also, I know that in the past some folks has mentioned their intention to at least attempt to adhere to some of the freedesktop.org specifications, and I would like to implore those folks to make official contact with the
guys over at the freedesktop.org mailing lists so they know we're alive
and kicking. I had a couple hour long conversation with the folks over in #freedesktop on irc.freenode.org, and they need to be hearing from us if
we truly do plan on supporting or implementing some of their specs. The
general opinion was "Since GNUstep developers have never contacted us,
they are not using or planning on using any of our specs" which I don't
really think is the case, but it was their collective opinion

Wow, I was thinking it all was pretty much controlled by GNOME/KDE, so it's nice that they at least know we exist :-)

To re-iterate, what are the plans for freedesktop.org standards adoption? We don't live in a vacuum, and frankly I'd really love to see GNUstep and
any WM's written for GNUstep play nice with other apps and such.

Perhaps we should put up a Buzzwords wiki page so we can record which buzzwords we conform to. Perhaps we could even get Freedesktop to include some of our ideas into a standard.
