If you're going to jump the gun and post a news item, then you should at least try to get it right. It's not only the gnome-panel that's been forked but rather Gnome 3.x fall-back mode in it's entirety. The new fork is called Consort desktop and includes not only the panel (consort-panel) but also Metacity (Consortium, includes consort-session) and even Nautilus (Athena). The purpose is to provide a Gnome 2.2x experience using Gnome 3.x libraries, unlike MATE which is a fork of Gnome 2.2x and utilizes GTK 2.x libraries. The creators of SolusOS are responsible for this latest fork of the mess that's Gnome 3.x

Um, is your comment directed at me for posting this or the author of the post?

The author of the post. Obviously I would never kill the messenger. :-)

No problem; it's just a flesh wound.

Anyone else just get a picture of Monty Python's Black Knight?
