I just want to start a little "game", and asking for your help to make this
list a bit more sizzling. :-) I have read someone asking for a particular
feature for lxpanel. Why would not we gather all possible wishes, give them
priorities and send them to the developers? Maybe they will accept it maybe
not but I beleive in that they could provide a clear roadmap if they know
exactly what features are missed by the end users. They can also make
statements about those wishes they don't want or cannot fulfill. Later
these could appear on the webpage as well... so what do you think?
At first we can start with lxpanel feature requests. To keep the game tidy,
I propose to move step by step:
1. Gather features and discuss their importance. The deadline for this can
be 30th June.
We can use these priorities:
3) Must-have; very important feature and without it the daily work is
harder or problematic.
2) Important; the lack of this feature makes lxpanel inconvenient, but
we can live without it.
1) Good to have; cosmetic or eye-candy issue.
2. We can measure how many people miss a particular feature (even though it
is a must-have it could be apply in very specific cases so the majority
don't need it, at least not at this moment). We can organize a voting
system for that later if you agree.
3. The results will be published in this list and will be sent to
developers so they can choose what to do.
I could not promise anything but I beleive it is useful to talk about the
problems and finally we may guide the developers to the "good direction"...
I suggest to focus on lxde environment (openbox, lx* applications) and not
on exotic circumstances like Awesome wm (sorry Pablo! :-)).
Have a nice day,
