Brainstorm discussion split between Brainstorm and Talk

Posted on 2009-09-16 20:21 UTC by Quim Gil. Status: Under consideration, Categories:

The Brainstorm has own comments so people can discuss the proposals and ideas presented.

The result is confusing: double discussions not always connected and some frustration at the end.

Having different logins for Brainstorm (stock login) and Talk (formet InternetTabletTalk) doesn't help.

Command line applications and Extras

One of the topics of the last community meeting about Extras QA was if command line applications (CLI) should be available for regular users through the application manager or not. We can't reach a consensus, and it seems to generate very contradictory opinions inside our community.

We're talking about apps that doesn't have a UI nor place a icon in the desktop, nor are simple enables that display a message during/after installation.

Please note that this is not about ban some applications, is about the way of get some specific applications.

Here is the initial discussion:
