It's not an extension to the panel menu code. It's not even a patch.
It's a completely separate applet. This is in fact, in no way different
than a theme engine in terms of integrating it upstream, into a larger
conglomerate package. Why do people keep assuming every change someone
does, is a patch? There are much better ways to do a lot of this stuff,
than patches, with the architecture we have.

glad to hear it - perhaps some of us were overreacting a bit :)

wrt to yer blog post regarding code drops at release time, I hope you and Novell can be persuaded to do more development in the open just for the sake of fairness (as we currently have a level playing field with the vast majority of Gnome software being done in the open). No one would complain if a small company or some individuals did stuff secretly but a big company like Novell should set a good example here. Profit from open source has always centered around support and services rather than a panel applet or two so I doubt you will lose anything and its certainly not worth the loss of good community relations.

(btw big thank you for XGL - Im using it now and it rocks way better than OS/X and vista)
