I think this displays a positive attitude.


The specification basically seems to be very similar to an existing
one - (which
also includes an analysis of automatix and other scripts).

That specification is marked as "Implemented" for the feisty release.
As you probably know Ubuntu now includes a number of easier ways to
install commonly requested programs. However, not all of the items
discussed in the spec appear to be implemented. An example is the one
you give in your spec, DVD playback.

It's very important for you to identify specific programs which are
still not well supported by Ubuntu, so that these can be considered in
the same way as the common-customizations spec was done.

Good luck!
