Agree, +1

Just a question. Any specific artwork needed for this? I know UI Freeze is near.

|  Hi,
|  Since we are already very late in the cycle, and I plan to do the
|  following changes to the default installation :
|  * Change notification-dameon to xfce4-notifyd. N-D is buggy, not
|  aesthetic ... and we have already the xfce depends for this xfce component.
|  * Add catfish, unless someone finish LXFind before Alpha 3. At least,
|  packaging, translation support need to be implemented before being
|  considered. Making it part of LXDE will be a strong argument to
|  reconsider it.
|  * Keep Scrot for screenshots, unless someone finish LXScreenshot. Same
|  comments than LXFind.
|  * Keep Gpicview, unless someone submit me a ready-to-review packaging of
|  Viewnor, or convince Debian to upload it. There is no consensus for
|  other alternatives (We have to avoid python and GNOME depends to limit
|  the use of memory).
|  * Add indicators by default on the panel. We had some icons problems
|  last cycle because we relied on a fallback for some icons on the
|  notification area. Adding indicators should fix the problem.
|  * Switch back to depends only for the seed and the meta-package
|  components. It means removing 1 package part of the seed will remove the
|  meta-package. We had bugs on the ISO generation when using recommends on
|  the seed, which I would like to avoid this time (well, nobody want to
|  investigate them since we are using a confusing combination of features,
|  not really design to work together)
|  The goal is to have Alpha 3 (end of July) more closed to what we should
|  ship for 12.10. Last missing pieces (like artwork) should be ready for
|  Beta1 (end of August).
|  Any concerns should be raised now, I plan to make most of the big
|  changes this week-end and next week, to have a month to test them on
|  dailies.
|  If you have any questions, comments, complains ... it's time to speak :-)
