        I hope they keep it maintained as some sort of patch set/diff/extension set on top of Gnome rather than a hard fork, there's a lot of improvement going into e.g. Mutter that I would hate to see not be taken advantage of. (From a quick glance, most/all of what they are doing is implementable as extensions.)

          If only Gnome could come up with a long time stable extension interface... really long time...

                Gnome did a great job making app search, workspace management, and app launcher to be in one place. And here we have good folk from system86 wants to seperate them into three different button.

                  Does this extension wrap their window tiling functionality as well? Will it work in other distros?

                    Separate extensions that provide a coherent and complete experience out of the box. Patches to GNOME Settings would not work on other distributions, unless they package GNOME Settings with our patches to add these new settings panels.
