Feature #310490, revision 1
Title: Develop and add a GTK smolt client to openSUSE

openSUSE-11.4: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: Luis Medinas (lmedinas)
Partner organization:

Smolt is a project that is picking stats about openSUSE installs. Currently
smolt-gui developed upstream is written in Qt and it difficult to add this
client to GNOME installation of openSUSE. So it's required to have a GNOME
integration to ship on the default install.

It's important to have a GTK client similar to smolt-gui and ksmolt (which is
the notification service launched on KDE).

Use Case:
User installs openSUSE GNOME and in the first run it shows a notification
asking for the user to submit the hardware data to smolt. If necessary launch a
smolt GTK client to send the data.

Business case (Partner benefit): Most of GNOME users aren't submitting openSUSE stats to smolt
database because smolt gui isn't integrated with GNOME.
