Re: Ideas for extending elementary os


Daniel that is incorrect. Feature requests are tracked in launchpad. That is why there is a "wishlist" priority level and why a report can be marked as "opinion" or "won't fix". 

This is not open for discussion. It is not appropriate to spam the mailing list with your wishlist. Please follow the appropriate and established methods for reporting wishlist items.
