"What does this mean? Well, if this is approved, GNOME Shell will get AppIndicator support so all those cool Ubuntu AppIndicators will work in GNOME Shell.

"The AppIndicators will show up in the GNOME Shell Message Tray (displayed at the bottom of the screen) and they work a bit differently compared to the Ubuntu implementation: clicking the notification brings the application forward (if the AppIndicator isn't a stand-alone app), the menu shows up on right click and they support tooltips, as opposed to Ubuntu. But of course, this may change (again, if this is approved)."
