Following the desktop team sprint in October and the UOS session last week
I wanted to quickly follow up on some proposed changes to the default
install and gather any feedback.
Brasero - to be removed from the image and put into Universe. The
rationale here is that little development or maintenance is happening
upstream, there are some bugs/issues which are yet to be fixed upstream and
its importance is diminished with the adoption of USB thumb drives. Very
few people are writing CDs/DVDs these days and those who need it can still
install Brasero from the archive.
Empathy - to be removed from the image and put into Universe. The
rationale here is again it's largely unmaintained now and that fewer chat
services can used with Empathy, because services such as Facebook are
moving everything back to their websites and away from XMPP.
Gnome Calendar - to be added to the image. This brings a stand-alone
Calendar application with integration with Unity.
I expect these changes to have little impact on the majority of users but
please let us have your feedback.
