A while ago, a few of us IRC folks have tried to push having a one-click .desktop icon that would take users directly to #suse in 10.3
While the idea seems to be divisive amongst people, I would like to know what the state of things is wrt that @Novell.
I've heard that Michl is against it, and given his position, I presume that's a "no-no" veto.
If so, could someone (preferably Michl himself) explain the reasoning behind it?
Afraid of people misbehaving ? We have ops. Afraid of it getting "out of control" ? Make it clear that it is "community support" and not an official Novell channel, and trust the community.
Being very much in favour of having that one-click-to-#suse thingy, I would appreciate (to put it mildly) having some feedback and if it's veto'd, I'd like to hear the reasons.
There won't be a _one_ click to #suse - and the main reason is that it's a bit of suprise and explaining the concept of IRC in two lines is asked too much.
What we have is here: http://ktown.kde.org/%7Ebinner/greeter.png (Alpha7 material)
And this links to http://en.opensuse.org/Communicate, which links to #opensuse (among others). So what you get is a 3-click-to-#suse
As I explained you on IRC, this will be an interesting experiment for the channel and its ops :)
