The last status is, actually there aren't any plans to integrate the
ideas from this project into the f-u-s-a (I contacted Ted Gould from
Ubuntu Desktop Team directly, even though he finds some ideas
interesting). I respect this decision surely.

This project is completed from my point of view. If somebody would like
develop the QuitAppletPlus prototype further on or fill that with the
real life, please contact me, then I will change the project
maintainer/driver respectively: https://launchpad.net/quit-applet-plus.
A short introduction of you and what is your intention for this project
would be appreciate.
I had fun with this project, I have learned a lot of thinks. I would
also say many thanks to all project contributors for your feedback,
translations and bug reports. :)
Best greetings,
Roman Friesen
