That's slightly quoted out of context. Mission control as such isn't a GNOME
program, but is used by Empathy, which is. Porting empathy to MC5 is definately
G2.28 material, as we already have more then enough new stuff that needs to
mature and be polished for G2.26... And given that the G2.26 UI freeze is in
about a month, we've got more then enough work to do :)

Those statements say exactly nothing about the roadmap of MC5 though... MC5 is
developed completely independantly and should get a lot more mature in the
coming months. I'd expect Sugar to be able to start using it for development
pretty early in the new year.

I'll leave this one up to Guillame to answer
