Sounds very good. Integrating the builder to the release would make it
very easy to create new desklets and change the outlook of older ones.

Perhaps at some point we might even integrate the website to the GUI
builder, making it possible to directly export the created widget to the
site :)

And it's almost set up. Last summer I created a gDesklets-project and a
team just for testing purposes. The team is open so anyone with a
launchpad account can join ->

We can do two things with the repo:
1) Mirror the SVN repo as a Bazaar branch, which AFAIK gets updated
2) svn export the current branch and create a new bazaar branch which we
can then ...
 ... 2.1) host on launchpad
 ... 2.2) host on

I feel the best solution would be 2.1 since we can then grant access to
the main branch based on the members in the driving team.

I think Chris knows best, but AFAIK we tried to release 35.4.1 but it
was mistakenly named 35.4 which caused problems with Garnome and
MD5-sums not matching. I reverted back to the original 35.4. The
difference between those is that 35.4.1 had a few extra translations.

There are still a few open bugs. Haven't really looked into those..
