Re: Future of Wingpanel



What do you mean by 'embedding indictors into apps'? Does it mean one installs for example Noise and the soundindicator is installed as well but not as a separate package?

If that's the case, what if a user wants to install another music player which makes use of the sound indicator? Additionally, how difficult will it be/ what effort will it take to backport upstream changes made to for example the sound indicator to the particular apps?

Voldyman showed off a cool proof of concept for libpeas-based plugs yesterday, but it's not necessarily the best architecture if we choose to embed indicators into apps (e.g. sound indicator in Audience). I'd like to talk to designers first and see what are the use cases for this feature, and if there's a sufficient number of indicators that should be embedded. Otherwise we could use the libpeas-based architecture and simply provide minimal D-bus interfaces to indicators like Sound.
