Description Rahul Sundaram 2006-01-31 05:30:22 EST
Description of problem:

The current default Evolution welcome mail isnt that useful. 

Expected results:

A fedora branded welcome mail specifying some information on Fedora. How to get
started. Some pointers for help etc would be pretty useful.

I'm not convinced we should do this; the welcome message contains information
specific to Evolution, not the distribution, and gives useful links to the
Evolution community pages.
Comment 2 Dave Malcolm 2006-02-02 13:42:50 EST
Note that the welcome email is translated into multiple languages; the user gets
one relating to their locale; other than that, it's fairly simple to implement
at a packaging level, evolution expects an Inbox containing the default
message(s) for each locale; currently ( supports C, de, ja, nl, pt, zh_GN

Comment 3 Rahul Sundaram 2006-02-03 00:47:00 EST
Maybe include a additional email then. Just like default browser - Firefox
including Fedora related bookmarks and release notes as the default homepage, we
can introduce information about Fedora in the default email client. Translation
can be done by the Fedora L10N team


(Adding Aman Alam as the L10N contact point)

We can probably fix this up at least a little bit for F7... Adding to tracker
for mbarnes.
Comment 5 Matthew Barnes 2007-04-23 14:25:33 EDT
Our solution for RHEL5 was to remove the welcome email altogether (bug #211152),
so that's what I'm doing for Fedora as well because it contains Novell branding.

I'm not sold on the idea of adding Fedora branding.  I think any welcome message
on a GNOME application should only reference GNOME community resources with no
distro or company-specific branding.

Removing the welcome message in evolution-2.10.1-7.fc7, but otherwise closing
this bug as WONTFIX.
