Meeting summary

Team updates

  • Packaging and Development
    • mr_pouit has applied some long-standing patches from bugzilla.xfce.org to xfdesktop for precise (ochosi, 18:04:56)
    • since it isn't maintained upstream at the moment (devs are waiting for the desktop to become a thunar-extension) it makes sense to patch it for xubuntu downstream (ochosi, 18:05:32)
    • among the patches is e.g. (rudimentary) thumbnail-support for the desktop (ochosi, 18:06:04)
  • Bug Triage, Testing and Documentation

    • maybe-ubiquity will land on images tomorrow, testers note: please check if everything looks as should (knome, 18:13:30)
    • Xfce have launched new documentation in a wiki (docs.xfce.org) (ochosi, 18:16:35)
    • From Xfce 4.10 onwards the help-button will point there, which will also mean no docs for people who are offline (ochosi, 18:17:07)
    • LINK: the docs are already accessible at http://docs.xfce.org/ (ochosi, 18:17:52)
