Good bye Ayatana, welcome to Unity
You may have noticed that the Ayatana mailing lists have been migrated
recently and been renamed with a new set of unity-* names. The former
ayatana list is now: unity-design. And ayatana-dev has been renamed into
The goal for this change is to reflect and clarify the importance of
Unity which has now taken a central role in our project.
Initially Ayatana had been created as an umbrella project to improve the
user experience of software in, and for, Ubuntu. The project was
directed at the "perception and presentation of information on the desktop".
This definition has served us well to explore the domain and identify
where best to focus our energy. And we've found that Unity should really
be our focus. Via the Unity Shell we can continue to improve the general
user experience of Ubuntu, and do so in a consistent way.
So welcome back to your lists: we're glad to work there together with
you, contributing to the design and the development of the Unity project.
David, for the Unity Team
