What would be involved in trying to get another desktop officially into
I am thinking of ice, for those people with machines without much
memory, or who just wish a lightweight window manager. But I am meaning
this question to be more general.
So far I have come up with the following list.
Well maintained rpm.
Bluecurve theme (on by default)
Menu structure consistent with other desktops
Integration into gdm and/or desktop switcher
stamp of approval from Garrett
stamp of approval from rest of Fedora governing body
Am I missing anything?
And on a related note, if one were to get the first 3 or 4 done, is it
even feasible that the stamps of approval will happen, or will this be
something that will only get into fedora-extra?
