gnome at freebsd feedback is unlikely, it's dieing from @freebsd robot noise !
robots are:
	linimon (aka broken ports robot)
real mails from humans are rare! 2 in May, 5 in June so far.  + spam.

Compare traffic with 10 years back:
Lots of humans used gnome@ to co-operate back then.

Robot owners should reduce frequency of robot excretions,
which swamp gnome@, contravening list definition:
	This is a forum for discussions related to bring the GNOME
	environment to FreeBSD.

This is not cc'd to: gnome@ so usual balance of traffic in archive remains.
