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.
(the point of this bug is that you can track
discussions about default apps by jumping on the cc list
of this bug)
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)?
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.
Closing; this bug is rather outdated.
