Translation:

"We worked on the new gnome-volume-control because pavucontrol has too many
features and we hate powerful applications.

So we wrote down the simplest use cases we could come up with in a short
brainstorming session and decided to remove all the useful features we
didn't think of, not asking for any actual user input, and we intend to
present a crippled user interface only showing that simplistic subset of
features."

And then you're surprised clich├ęs about GNOME working exactly that way
circulate?
