[gDesklets] About window (was: Re: Meta-Tags)

Hi there,

just renaming this discussion as it is more and more about the "About
window" and less about the meta-tags.
Once we all got to an agreement I will try to get it into 0.36.

Well, the buttons will have a big dis-advantage:
Either you will have to open a new window (which will use memory) OR you
will have to open an external viewer/editor (like using the "View
sourcecode" (or however it's name is in the English translation)) which
wouldn't be much better either.
Therefore I would prefer the tabs.

:). I am on to it :)!

So we would need a search order for these files.

He is an example:



What about files like README.txt or if there is a README and a ReadMe
file ???
More suggestions / ideas ??

Wouldn't it be nice to be the first app to provide it ??

OK, just kidding :). Although I still like the idea...
