as you said, it's a matter of taste.
grip is a good example of a nice application. But because of this
it shouldn't go in gnome desktop suite. Let it be as a separate

gnome developers should focus on the gnome core / major apps.
gnome-cd was ported to gnome2, while gnome-hint wasn't
That means more delays to gnome2 release (if anybody cares
about planning...)

no problem with that. make gnome-cd a separate package on sourceforge
and let them work on it (they should better improve grip if xmms
is not their choice).

drop it completly, remove from CVS.

I just hate having thousands of little apps (see and
none of them working perfectly. What if people who contributed
to gimp started instead their own john_doe_paint, just to have
their own application with their name of freshmeat? gimp wouldn't
be _the_ image manipulation program on gnu/linux today.

It's good to do your own little app and learn from it, but then
drop it and contribute to one of the most used application which
does the same think. This benefits the most people.

Here I can give myself as an example
