Hi all,

When we do a default GNOME install, we will also get a Firefox plugin
for beagle to index the online history. I like to know if people want
this to be automatically installed or not.

So, can you please reply to the list (ctrl+l in evolution) and let us
know if this firefox plugin should be installed by default or not.

[ ] Install by default
[X] Do not install by default

Probably I shouldn't influence people. But

I think people should be aware of two important issues currently
happening with the Beagle Firefox plugin:
beagle indexer firefox plugin incompatible with Firefox 3.5 "Private
Browsing" mode

Summary: Beagle will _always_ index or at least save away the pages you
visited w/o even thinking about Firefox' privacy modes.
beagle-firefox flooding $HOME

Summary: If you ever used beagle or just happen to have a ~/.beagle
directory the addon will always save your visited pages there especially
if beagle is not running and therefore nothing wipes that data ever.
