Besides that statement also applying to yourself, the answer is no.  The 
BSD community simply will not accept the substandard replacements of BSD 
functionality that Linux is adding to gnome.

In other words, the functionality is already on BSD, Linux people are 
reinventing the wheel, and coming up with a worse product.  The BSD 
folks will just stick with what they have as it's better.  That's one of 
the issues and no amount of patch skills is going to fix that.  It's a 
philosophical difference.

"Lennart Poettering: BSD isn't relevant anymore"
Slashdot sensationalism, but basically gnome doesn't care if it's 
BSD-friendly or not and it's diverging to the point of no compatibility.
