I've just installed e17 and now am trying to figure out different things.
The question I have is about module placement. So far the few modules
I see (like clock or thermometer) are placed into the shelf at the

Also, I got one segfault already. I've created new .eap file for Eterm
and modified the favorite/.order to use new one. Then I went to
Menu->Favorite Applications and selected Eterm there (it still was
showing the old name). After that I got segfault.
Really the e17 is cool :)

Not at the moment. The shelf code is in an early state of development,
it is intended to have different types of shelf that can live in some
interesting places. Right now though, there is only the one type, the
type that lives on the edge of the screen. You can have multiple
shelves though, and make them arbitrary sizes, drop them behind
everything else, make them transparent, and otherwise tweak them.
On the other hand, there are a few modules that have not been converted
to shelf style yet, and they can usually be put on the desktop. Keep in
mind that it is likely that these older style modules will be converted
in the future, maybe after there are other styles of shelf available.
