Fedora is too cliquish, and doesn't really want outsiders views.
I was at flock where a lot of f.N was hammered out, and I like the idea, but I really don't like how they seem to ignore other voices. Unless you are a well known contributor, or a bombastic troll you simply get ignored even if no one is addressing your concerns. That has me worried. ...and they wonder how to increase the signal to noise ratio amongst the community... In short, if you want them to address your point, you apparently need to be an unsocial ass. Simply commenting in thread after thread does nothing.
Death of Fedora, Long Live Fedora!
All the arguments in that YouTube video addressed a 'why are we shrinking' comment not 'what do you think of the change.' The change is to get more application developers and I agree with the assessment that Fedora is currently a production preview release of upstream.

It has always appeared to me that since Fedora typically directs bug reports upstream, you'd be better to contribute directly to the main project instead of Fedora. In this regard, no change is going to promote more Fedora developers because they're heading upstream. It may however encourage more developers to use Fedora.
Lastly, I don't understand having issues with Gnome 3. It's significantly faster (Super,g,e,Enter = gedit; Super,t,e,Enter=terminal) than anything else I've used and the extensions are a lot better than the Gnome 2 way of running a bunch of small applications with windows consuming space on the screen and taskbar.
At the 43:00 mark, I was surprised that the KDE user didn't recognize that a KDE-only integration isn't nearly as complete as the Gnome-only integration and configuration utilities like policycoreutils-gui don't have a KDE counterpart. A Fedora.next Workstation that primarily uses KDE is going to have to have the gnome libraries installed to do basic configuration anyway.
