    Kubuntu is not the only KDE distro, almost no KDE developer even uses Kubuntu. Also, to which standard do you refer?

    Well, there is a diff, actually. For one thing, fedora doesn't ship Epiphany/Web. I believe there are others as well, but that's the main user facing difference.
    As for pressure, I'm not sure you're right about that...

    I just went ahead at took a look on the monthly average for five digests near July month of 2013, 2012 and 2011. Based on KDE commit digests.

    2011: 230 contributors, 2490 commits
    2012: 192 contributors, 2230 commits
    2013: 164 contributors, 1960 commits

    Sorry but like Ohloh and the commit digest agrees. KDE is DYING Now deal with the facts, and don't shoot the messenger.
    There was a similar drop leading up to the KDE 4.0 release as well. I guess KDE died then too

    Right, so you have us the old chestnut that is the Ohloh stats, which correct me if I'm wrong also show a decrease in GNOME contributions and of course that graph chrisb found that showed a plummet in Debian contributions to near zero; somehow I don't think we are getting the full story there.

    Likewise, cherry picking data to try to prove your point goes to show that you really don't have a point to make. You should try harder next time.

    What multi-sourced facts are you talking about? However, I see you have revered to making more unsubstantiated comments, surprise surprise.

    Well if you are not here to "do all of the work" then don't make the claim - simple.

    Such a thing does not exist. I guess you mean permissive OSS licenses.

    I'm pretty sure Honton uses gnome, he had a screenshot
    I'd be surprised if funkSTAR wasn't a gnome user.

    But I know these trolls aren't at all representation of gnome users in general.

    Because IF Fedora starts carrying a significant diff to upstream the rh gnome devs are gonna start feeling even more pressure from within.
