Why is that a decision for the XFCE or GNOME maintainers?
Why should the maintainers of the desktop drag down the VoIP/RTC
experience for everybody to push their own pet projects even if it is
only suitable for limited use cases or violates the privacy expectations
of our users (as is the case with Empathy)?
Why should the Debian community not be free to mix and match those
components that are best suited for the task?
