an Arch Linux guy and some others are helping with the porting to gnome 3.8, but it more certainly going to be dropped from communify due to incompatibility with clutter 1.14.0.
The critical issue is the incompatibility with clutter 1.14.0, which is not solved yet, so we still have to remove cinnamon from the [community] repository, when GNOME 3.8 moves into [extra]. (nemo is compatible so it could stay.) Cinnamon developers know about this problem, but it will probably take some time until they solve the problem. Unfortunately I can't fix the problem myself, and not even know, how can I debug muffin.
Since the announcement, much work is being doing to port cinnamon to gnome 3.8, so in a couple of weeks or so it could be finished acording with Clement.
Now Cinnamon is fully functional with GNOME 3.8. There may some minor bugs, but all major functions are working, so it will probably stay in the [community] repo in the next months.

I actually like Cinnamon it's a very functional desktop, but the control panel, and customization is kind of lacking (it almost gives that windows customization vibe... meaning not much)
I however always used Gnome's control panel over Cinnamons but for themes and such I do use the normal control panel.
I think Cinnamon will work with Gnome 3.8 it's just a matter of time as 3.8 isn't that old, it's still hardmasked in Gentoo and in testing(currently) in Arch Linux but should be in the stable tree next week or so.
I think Cinnamon at least for Gentoo/Arch will stay, but can't say the same for other distros.
