a quick summarize of the session we had in UDS about the workflow for choosing default applications, and with a current proposal.
Current consensus was to stay with the list of applications we have for Karmic (but please read until the end of this mail :))
The general proposal for the roadmap is the following :
– Determine areas not currently covered in Karmic seed that still need to be addressed
– Discuss applications that could be replaced
– Organize a IRC meeting to stop the applications list
For problematic applications, we’ll need discussions preferably with advantages/disadvantages, benchmarks (memory and CPU usage , dependencies, installed space …). The goal is not to replace all the seed, but focus on some keys applications that can be discuss, and which have solid arguments for a replacement.
