Hi everyone,

This a request for comments for the GNOME Goals project, which aims at
improving desktop consistency, and helping newcommers to get involved in
the GNOME community.

We're trying to launch a new GNOME Goal to migrate the about boxes to
the GtkAboutBox API that came way back (in GTK 2.6). You can find the
proposal here:

There are however for the moment a few blocking problems.

1. The way the license is handled

There is an enhancement request for usual licences support in

We have 3 choices:
* Copy/paste the license text in each project in the "license" property
* Wait until the API for usual licenses is implemented and use the
"license-name" property (volunteers ?)
No need to hurry, I would just wait.

* Use a copy/pasted version, then launch a new Goal when the API is
ready (overkill IMHO).

2. The text to use for the website URL
If an usability guru reads that, should we use as text for the link to
the application's project:
* the rough URL of the project,
* or a text like "XYApp Web Site" ?
XYApp Web Site looks nicer, I don't think it's important to show the
target url at all.
In any case, you could show that info with a tooltip (if it's
possible/makes sense).

Please add your comment in replying to this mail, or in the "Comments"
section of this GNOME Goal proposal at

Thank you
