Oneiric will be using GNOME3, so I don't believe that Ubuntu GNOME Remix
is the best possible choice in a name, and providing GNOME 3 is
repetative to the goals of Ubuntu Oneiric.

Maybe it would be better to submit your efforts to the Gnome 3 Team PPA
with those of us that have a better grasp with GNOME 3 and packaging.

It may be better to provide bugs in GNOME 3 to the upstream devs so it
can get fixed for everyone.
