Alignment on a Common Direction

Review of Feature Proposals

- Accessibility
  → the feature will be completed the day we can enable a11y by default,
    probably not possible for 3.2, still the a11y team is working hard and
    tracking progress in
    → remove from the features page
    → make sure the coordination page has theme issues listed (gtk themes, gnome
      themes, icon themes...)

- Application menu / Actions / Jumplists
  → we need to keep pushing for that, to get some concrete plans in the feature

- Backup
  → primary concern about out-of-tree settings panel, and secondary concerns
    about license and hosting on launchpad; a discussion on design started
    between mterry and aday, lapo would also be interested, the discussion
    should continue but at the moment we think it can make it as a feature for

- Color Management
  → disagreements about having color management in a settings panel are over;
    need some design for something small enough that we can get it for 3.2 and
    that does not get in the way of regular users...

- IBus/XKB support
  → looking grim, need to get back on this later on.

- Login Screen
  → halfline, mccann, and mclasen will work on concrete plans next week

- Tablets / touch / scrollbars
  → hadess is interested, we'll have incremental improvements, but will
    certainly not be able to label 3.2 as "tablet ready".

- Web Applications Integration
  → need to talk to the Epiphany team

- Initial Setup
  → heads up about

- Contacts
- Crypto Glue
- Quick File Previewing
- Finding And Reminding
- Fix Annoying Things
- Human Interface Guidelines
- On-screen Keyboard
- Sharing
- System Dialogs
  → discussion delayed to next meeting

Opening Release Team List

 - pro: people can follow what we do and there is some clear interest
 - con: people might interfer and answer stuff they shouldn't answer

 → let's try opening, and let's say that we test if it works out.

Next Meeting Date

Sunday 2011-05-22, 18UTC, tentative, mail to be sent
