What kind of plans there are for desktop menu? I thought of learning
linux programming by writing a graphical editor for editing the
menu.xml. However I noticed that xfdesktop already contains some code
for setting an "edit" state.
The information I'm looking for is:
1. Are there plans to make additions to xml part? A check against dtd
2. Is the current method of parsing good? It has two stages:
1. The document is parsed into GList with menuitem data
2. Then this list is turned into the menu by calling
gtk_item_factory_create_item for each menuitem in GList. This stage also
includes converting menuitem data so that gtk_item... function accepts it.
Hmm.. It might be better to ask what were the arguments for choosing
this implementation instead of e.g combining above stage into one and
creating the menu while parsing xml file.
3. What is the planned schedule for modifications/additions to
desktopmenu? I ask so that I don't start anything someone is already
