Description Matthias Clasen 2005-10-14 12:01:50 EDT
We talked about doing separate entries for Mail (which would be in Internet),
Tasks, Calendars and Contacts. 
The desktop files should not refer to evolution-2.4, but just to evolution
Comment 1 Dave Malcolm 2005-10-17 14:37:28 EDT
My plan is to use the string and icon from each of the four evolution components
(as seen in the task switching buttons)

Should all four be in "Internet"?  Putting Mail and Contacts in Internet makes
sense; however Tasks and Calendars are less clearly in "Internet".  Though
perhaps they should be kept together?  How about putting all of them in the
"Office" category?

Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2005-10-17 14:52:59 EDT
I thought


Do we really need a menu item for Contacts ?
Comment 3 Dave Malcolm 2005-10-24 15:52:23 EDT
Possibly: in theory Gaim, OO.org and gnome-meeting can access these contacts as
well (don't know current state of the support for e-d-s though).

I'm going to try this for the initial verson (hopefully tomorrow's rawhide):



Comment 4 Dave Malcolm 2005-10-24 20:49:27 EDT
gah... found a regression in the specfile (of bug 103826).  I'm fixing that one
tonight, and will look at fixing this one tomorrow.
Comment 5 Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-10-25 15:38:25 EDT
I think we should make sure that the "Hide Buttons" menu item (in the
View->Switcher Appearance menu) is defaulted to off when we separate things. 
The components feel much more independent when that switcher isn't visible.
Comment 6 Dave Malcolm 2005-10-25 19:40:14 EDT
The packages:
should land in rawhide tomorrow, containing the scheme described in comment 3.

I'll look into the idea in comment 5, but I guess we should see how people feel
about the separate launcher idea.
Comment 7 Dave Malcolm 2005-10-26 17:45:52 EDT
There was some snafu with the build of 2.4.1-6 which stopped it landing today,
but it's built now.

I've implemented the idea in comment 5; building as 2.4.1-7 (patching the GConf
schema so that by default the switcher buttons are not visible on new evolution
windows), hopefully should land in tomorrow's rawhide (modulo build problems, of
Comment 8 Dave Malcolm 2005-10-27 18:28:16 EDT
Resolving as fixed in rawhide.  

Comments welcome - is this an improvement?  Should we add some of these
launchers to the default panel? etc etc
