Deferred Edgy Ideas for Feisty

Lets take a walk through and see what we
can take from there and implement in Feisty:

New printer configuration (either adding this to xfprint or making
> gnome-cups-manager gtk-only)

Implemented in Edgy.

  Browse Windows network (Thunar)

We might not be able to get something integrated with Thunar for Feisty but
we could include a stand-alone samba network browser. I hear there is a nice
python based one.

Trash support (Thunar)

Implemented in Edgy.

Floppy support (Thunar)

I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to hack this into Thunar. <g>

sort out Audio/Video player situation (gxine looks better that xfmedia at
> this point) (I would suggest seperate clients for audio and video: something
> like Listen or Exaile for audio, and gxine/xine for video)

Should we re-evaluate this again?

Update-notifier to be included by default.

I haven't looked. Did this make it into Edgy? If not, we could fix the xfce
notification daemon (it has the gnome-deps removed) and update the
update-notifier to make use of it. Shouldn't be too hard.

All of Desktop UI improvements

I don't think we have the man power to tackle this right now. Hopefully
they'll occur upstream.

Menubar like in Gnome (Apps/Places/System) instead of simple menu
> (Applications)

This, however, is something we could easily do and an idea that I like.

All of Reducing duplication, reusing Ubuntu software

Did you ever solve the CDBS issue? Any further efforts here?

Import upstream svn into bzr in LP and work on that

Do we plan to still do this?

Xubuntu langpacks? Right now it's base langpacks + gnome langpacks (evince,
> gnumeric) for full desktop translation

Whats the status on this? :)

Revisit app selection (i.e. sylpheed-claws vs t-bird vs seamonkey)

Should we revisit this discussion for Feisty?

I'm really excited for Feisty. Are you? :)
