itetcu was also looking at creating entries by default for ports. I
wrote a program for him to extract PNG images from arbitrary
executables, so something may come from this. I do agree having
additional desktop files for common GNOMEish apps (e.g. Wireshark)
would be nice.
Why limiting this to gnomeish apps? Do you expect that GNOME users
only use gnomeish apps and KDE users only kdeish ones without having a
look at other stuff (TCL/python/perl/SDL/whatever)? For example I
don't mind having a desktop file for acroread.
- optional automatic config of the system (adding rc.conf stuff,
maybe usermount sysctl stuff, ...)
This is easy as we can adopt some of the niceties done by PC-BSD
(e.g. default PolicyKit.conf, devfs config, sysctls, etc.).
Do you have pointers?
Of course, you UNDERSTAND about the PLAIDS in the SPIN CYCLE --
