you might have heard of the ExampleContent spec already, which will
bring funky content to our users.
It will be great to
* showcase or
* experiment with or
* test our applications
* and to have fun :-)
Apart from making the content fresher, more exciting and more fun, one
problem remains: making example content more visible. At the moment it's
installed into /usr/share/example-content - a place that my mother would
What can we do to make this better? Some proposals are obvious:
* deploy a link on the desktop via /etc/skel? What about existing
* deploy links in .postinst for all users? What about users who
delete the link and what happens with the next package update?
* copy to the Desktop? what about full filesystem? Isn't that
* add a GTK fileselector bookmark / entry in the places menu? What
about users wanting to remove the entry but still keep example
You see that it's not quite easy to make example-content more visible.
I'd very much like to hear your input on this.
Have a nice day,
