Hi all,

I've noticed that by default in Feisty, the administration menu seems to be gone, and all of the functions it contained can now be accessed via the gnome-control-center.

FWIW, this is a proposal for GNOME 2.18 that may or may not be adopted
(although it looks like it will be).  I've never been too keen on it,
but assuming it gets in, I'm hopeful that it will still be possible to
switch back to the more efficient, old-style menu access too.

Hm, I've seen this argumentation in other places too (from ubuntu forum users who prefer the old menu system). I think it's a bad idea for two reasons:

* We cannot keep legacy approaches around forever. It will clutter the interface with options and clutter the code. If gnome decides on this option we should work to improve it (where needed) and not try to bring back the old IMHO. * We should never rely on the legacy solution to provide us with the accessibility features. It will always be less discoverable and may suddenly disappear.

Making the new control centre accessible should not be that hard. Who can we contact about it?
