Hi, This is the list of GNOME-related packages that got added since the last issue, ie August 26th. The packages that are in Factory as of this issue will be in Milestone 2! Woohoo! We didn't get any removal this time I must admit I lost track of who did what, but many of those packages are in thanks to Atri, Dominique, and Luis! Keep the contributions coming! http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:GNOME_new_packages contains the latest status about this.
<snip> Thanks guys for all the hard work!!! Just want to drop a note that we appreciate all the hard work.
Personally, I'd really like the Evolution RSS plugin to be packaged. http://gnome.eu.org/evo/index.php/Evolution_RSS_Reader_Plugin [which is, I think, the only maintained 3rd party Evolution plugin].
I'd suggest that this should be merged in evo sources upstream, rather than we packaging it. I've heard that other distros also package it (as I used to see bug reports when I was triaging).
OTOH, Even better solution is, About 2 years ago, There were some idea/plans to improve the Evolution plugins infrastructure such that anyone can install a plugin, without relying on the distro to package it, or requiring root access. After all, that's what a "plugin" means, right ;-) ? In fact, iirc, there is already code for loading plugins from an alternative location, (like from under your home directory). But no GUI to install it, and no code exists for plugin version management. But that idea was dropped owing to some team size reduction, Other priorities etc. May be now we can nudge the Novell evo team or ask in evolution-hackers to implement this (FF type) plugin-functionality, rather than every distro packaging plugins themselves.
