I understand that this was a very difficult task and as far as it goes, I
like generally the list. I find it unfortunate that you limited your
response to prioritizing the list you were given as the Launchpad
developer's list does not include what I consider the most important issues
that prevent using Launchpad from being a productive/enjoyable activity for
In addition to your list I would ask them to consider (I would place all
these items higher than anything on their list)
1. Signed PPAs (this may be already planned pre-3.0). For me, I will not
use PPAs until this is fixed.
2. Faster. As a design goal, aim to have all page delivered to the client
in less than one second. I recognize this will be a substantial technical
challenge, but it is the biggest barrier I have to productivity on
Launchpad. I believe there are studies that suggest one second is the
threshold for user annoyance. I think it's about right for me (I'd love
500 milliseconds, but I doubt that's doable).
3. Stable and clear U/I. As I've said many time before, I feel the
Launchpad U/I has been getting harder and harder to understand and use.
The current one is substantially worse than 1.0 and 1.0 was substantially
worse than the pre-beta U/I (I know it was a tables based hack, but that
irrelevant to look and feel). If you aren't going to make it better, at
least please stop the churn.
