UI Hackfest Ideas

  • Application Title (Using mail folder name, Calendar, Address Book, and unred counts)

  • Folder messages should be disabled when no folder is seleced.
  • After a folder is created, it should be visible. (The parent folder should be unfolded by default)
  • Meeting editor improvements - keyboard shortcuts to add/delete a attendee.

  • Resolve duplicate contacts
  • Default vfolder configurations
  • Edit->Preferences: All the tab heading should use a standard color. Calendar/ Free/busy uses something odd.

  • RTL Language auditing
  • Use e-error every where instead of gnome or gtk dialog
  • General UI Polish (Find something that is generally right, and suggest improvements)
  • Assign Task r-click menu item appears on a assigned task. Both this and open, shows the same dialog.

  • Fixing the tree view. Double click should fold/unfold. Use different folder icons for fold / unfold states(Where ever possible).Optionally i guess double click refreshes a folder which could be added to a pop-up menu and/or to the folder menu.
  • Status tracking should be disabled for unsupported providers. It is bad that a menu option just return without telling anything.
  • For loading operation, we should show busy cursor.
  • In the dialog where we add contacts, like clicking of TO/CC/ other place, it should be redesigned to be more intuitive (vivek).

Bug Squashing

Bugs that require string changes or introduce new strings

We are in String and UI Announcement Period now so we _MUST_ inform gnome-i18n( at )gnome.org and gnome-doc-list( at )gnome.org when adding or changing strings and we _MUST_ inform gnome-doc-list( at )gnome.org when changing the UI!

Evolution/User:Andre: generally: dear UI hackers, all translators will love you and give you candies if you take a look at the open string i18n issues. srag will of course love you if you help him fixing menu item bugs. and if you're a bit lazy, fixing some mnemonic issues will also make you famous - at least for me. :-)
