Freedesktop Summit

Hi there

In a few days (April 11 to 16) will take places a sprint called "Freedesktop
Summit", the description of which is:

"This is a joint technical meeting for those involved in the "desktop
infrastructure" layer of the major free software desktops."

It is NOT a sprint to talk about freedesktop state but rather to focus on
technical bits.

Each desktop is adding topics to be discussed, you can find the list here:

If you want to add any point to the agenda mention it in this thread and I
will add it.

Cheerz.

I guess the elephant in the room will be Unity which appears unrepresented...

With my "ISV" hat on, I added an item for annoyance to me. Gnome Shell
adds a "Quit Application" item to what it calls the application menu.
However this doesn't actually quit the application, it just closes the
window! I actually have to add special code to handle this. And of
course it would be nice if I could add my own items to this
application menu, but gtk considers the dbus api it uses to be a
private implementation detail.

I've asked on the xdg mailing list about how to direct-open files with a known MIME type which are stored on a location not accessible via some "well-known and widely implemented" protocol [1]. Unless there's some clear answer without any obvious disadvantages, I think it would be interesting to hear some discussion about this topic.

With kind regards,
