Those who do not learn from the past... ;-)

Back in the day, GNOME 1.0 through 2.0, the GNOME developer community
was almost exclusively about infrastructure. It's in the expansion of

Nowadays we seem to treat infrastructure as a means to an end, and the
results are much better (in fact, even the infrastructure is better).
