Looks to me that Mandriva has implemented several

any
good ideas eh?

Well, except RocketBar (which is a modification of the
standard Plasma
panel) the new features are just a collection of only 4 new
Plasma
widgets (SimpleWelcome, Divider, StackFolders, and IIRC
a Task List). If
they don't need patches to core parts of Plasma, they
could be packaged
if one is able to find the source codes for them (so far I
didn't).

yep, good approach, first package and test them.
Afterwards decide what
should be default :)

What I observed in the videos is that in general (for
Mandriva and also
SUSE) quite a lot of more fine tuning is needed. For example
all the
listed plasma widgets, which are available by default look to
me like a
random mess.

Just because some developer liked it, it should not be
installed by
default. We should rethink which applets are really use full
for most
users and don't install the rest. That would IMHO make the
desktop look
way more professional and people get the impression that
they can actually
do something usefull with the widgets.
I totally agree. I feel like our current widgets make us look
sloppy, and the majority of them should not be installed by
default. I'm pretty sure this will change once the new widget
creation framework is up.
