I think this thread could do with a good helping of spec-reading. :-)


You can do almost all of this with the vFolder spec, and the best thing is
that you will have to do very little work to it them working in GNOME and
KDE because they will both support the spec. So whatever the .desktop files
that Debian packages install say, GNOME and KDE will do.

If anything, you guys should be contributing to the spec, to make sure that
it works properly for Debian. Then it will truly kick arse for both the
desktops *and* distributions.
