Indeed, yet I heard Gnome want since quite some time now distance itself from 
GNU, as an independent, not GNU-related project.

Furthermore, the (not always implementd) will to go toward a “cloud” (SaaSS) 
approach, recalling me the dark times of the French Minitel, scared me and 
hinted me that user-freedom is not anymore their goal, if not the abstract 
believe in superiority of the “open source” method.

And I sincerely believe that, as GnuTLS, the current state of both projects is 
they can’t be dismissed, reappointed or anything by rms.  I believe if Gnome 
became a “cloud” software, unable to work without a central server, and rms 
wanted to dub MATE as the new “GNOME”, he couldn’t (same as for GnuTLS, which 
pose way less issues in regards of software freedom).
