Current version of gnome-do is outdated, no plans to update gnome-do are in the works. Tons of library changes are needed as well as other new package dependencies. Version in rawhide 0.4.2.0-2.fc10, but 0.5 was released in June 2008.

Gnome-do provides an incredible amount of features and power to the average gnome or kde user. The ability to discretely activate applications in a gui without a mouse is very enticing. Fedora users can benefit by removing the requirements to use a mouse (save web browsing) again.
Gnome-do provides plugins which help for IM, twitter, shutdown/restart, etc. Plus the ability to launch, search, etc., things normally that can be done in a Desktop/Window Manager
Benefit to Fedora
Many things that can be done with the current gnome-applets and gnome-panels can easily be done in gnome-do more efficiently. Gnome-do is a much more discrete way to activate, search, launch or do just about anything else. Here's a couple simple use cases.
- Frank wants to IM his buddy john
- Jim wants to listen to some Megadeth
- Alice wishes to shutdown her computer.
- others probably as well
