Re: Good bye Ayatana, welcome to Unity


Is good to have focus.

But ayatana was more like a "general" place for ideas for different parts of the ubuntu-desktop (design ideas for usc, nautilus, apps, unity, etc.).

so there is some confusion if those topics will have another place or they can still be submited here ?
