I think we shouldn't stop anyone from such behavior. In general, KDE
developers attitude is simple - we like it, we implement it. They
don't copy stuff. And it's good. But freedesktop, is an attempt to go
one step ahead. Many of these steps were made already by KDE ppl, now
it looks like is taking next steps, implementing stuff
I don't like 'not keen on new stuff, especially if it comes from
GNOME/fd.o' attitude, that I can see in some KDE ppl. They think they
lead, but this might rappidly change.
The World is changing, so should KDE.
And since many of new features listed on fd.o are already in GNOME, I
think we should not be let ourselves be raced off by them as it soon
will make KDE what GNOME was for few last years.
