With many developers attending Gran Canaria Desktop Summit
<http://www.grancanariadesktopsummit.org/> last week, the second
<https://bugs.launchpad.net/hundredpapercuts/+milestone/round-2> in the
One Hundred Paper Cuts project
<http://https://bugs.launchpad.net/hundredpapercuts> was moved back one
week. We did not heal all ten paper cuts in Round 2
<https://bugs.launchpad.net/hundredpapercuts/+milestone/round-2>, but we
made excellent progress on seven of them, while three paper cuts (and
one Kubuntu paper cut) need some more attention before they can be healed.
Paper cuts fixed in this milestone:
* Scrolling over your desktop no longer causes seasickness
* Warn users who attempt to run updates on battery power
* Don't show esoteric "Sign" and "Encrypt" entries in file context
* Remove "Open with" and quotation marks from entries in "Open with"
* Show application icons in the "Open with" sub-menu
The following paper cuts are still in progress. Many of them have
patches available, but something small is preventing the patches from
* Nautilus's search button tooltip is misleading
The fix for this bug was included in a broader patch; a patch that
directly addresses this bug needs to be created.
* Network Manager's wireless network password field should be
focused by default for quick authentication
Patch is awaiting review and integration upstream and in Ubuntu.
These paper cuts appear to be stuck and may need *your* attention:
* "Create Document" Templates difficult to use
Needs a fundamental decision about which templates to include.
* Ambiguous wording in Computer Janitor confirmation dialog
Patch needs attention from someone with PyGtk expertise.
* Fix avatar in KDE menu to be next to username
Plasma Review Board seems to have rejected the patch outright for
breaking visual consistency.
* Poor descriptions for some applications in Startup Programs window
This bug needs attention from a native english speaker with
excellent writing skills.
Overall, I am pleased with the great work completed for this milestone,
especially the amazing Nautilus work by Marcus Carlson
<http://https://launchpad.net/%7E0-launchpad-mejlamej-nu> with the
upstream care and cooperation of Cossimo Cecchi
<http://blogs.gnome.org/cosimoc/>. I expect the lingering paper cuts in
this round to be fixed for Karmic even as we move our focus to Round 3
<https://bugs.launchpad.net/hundredpapercuts/+milestone/round-3> this week.
