What should Ubuntu do? (to be nice to me)
Friday, May 14, 2010 11:55 - GNOME
First disclaimer: those recent posts were triggered by my participation to the first day of UDS, and I think it is great to have such an open event. Despite my criticism I still believe Ubuntu has been great for Debian, GNOME, and free software in general.
Second disclaimer: I understand being nice to me has not been identified as a major goal, but still, why not?
So what should Ubuntu do? And being nice to me is not the sole rationale, there are more substantial tings: exposure to more developers (which will help adoption by application authors, and bring bug reports and patches), asserting interest in the evolving GNOME platform, and assuring a comfortable transition to GNOME Shell, when time will have come.
This is just four ideas I scribbled down, in no way limitative, or fruits of a long reflection:
- Push indicator packages into Debian;
- Create a patch against GNOME Shell to have indicators in the panel;
- File bug reports with the Mutter changes done for Unity;
- Make GNOME Shell and Seed compatible.
