Description Havoc Pennington 2002-12-13 22:00:29 UTC
This is a tracking bug for deciding which applications should be the default ones, and which should be "extras" Bugs marked as blockers of this bug should be closed by making a decision about which app in a particular category of application is the best default.
Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2002-12-13 22:01:12 UTC
(the point of this bug is that you can track discussions about default apps by jumping on the cc list of this bug)
Comment 2 Michael Lee Yohe 2002-12-13 22:10:42 UTC
Havoc, will 8.1 be unified in the sense that the default applications will be for both desktop environments (Gnome and KDE)? Or, should this be re-labeled as "Decisions about default Gnome applications)?
Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2002-12-13 22:15:55 UTC
The default app decisions are global for the OS. Sometimes the decision is to use a different app for each desktop (e.g. for the simple text editor, or for terminals), but that's the exception. Even in that case, the decision is made globally, its result is just a special case.
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2005-03-01 20:51:42 UTC
Closing; this bug is rather outdated.
