This projcet is for those who want to use GNOME2 on Fedora 16 (17, 18, ... when possible). For those who are happy with GNOME3, you can safely skip this one.
What is GNOME2.F16?
From the name it is clear that this project is for running GNOME2 on Fedora 16. It is a perl script (gnome2.build.pl) that downloads selected GNOME2 src rpm from Fedora 14, compiles and installs on Fedora 16.
Mnemonic shortcut support for main menus in desktop environments seem to have completely disappeared, except for Mate/Gnome2. Am I missing something?
FYI mnemonic shortcuts execute the first (or underlined) letter once a menu is up. Vastly faster than "pointing" menu navigation and allows far more diversity and flexibility than a straight multiplex key combination shortcut.
