Dear OpenSUSE,

As a part of an ongoing effort to make our distro better visually and user
experience-wise we have come to a realization that things would be much
easier if we had some sort of a unified community tool (or a set of those) to
help us widen our outreach.
We are aware that there is already SUSE Connect, as well as an abundance of
various mailing lists and IRC channels. However, few of our users actually
know about those, or actively use them.
So the idea so far is to make a desktop application ...

Make it a web service instead of a desktop application,
so that I can access it from my smartphone as well. Integrating (e.g.
linking, embedding) other existing services adds much value to the
overall experience.
Also, a web-application saves you from the choice between gtk/qt/wx/tk
and people wasing time re-writing it with a different toolkit.
