Yes that is the case, the way these directories are configured is that there is a config file which lists each one. this allows for folders in different languages to be used correctly by programs without having to have that foreign language support built in (without breaking horribly). Getting folders used is a matter of project preference, although support for the ideas from other developers would help push standards too. > I still see some issues (like a unified way to save emails, not that if > I first use Thunderbird my emails are stored like "foo.mail" and with > Evolution they are stored like "080916_foo.evomail" or similar) but > issues are here to resolve and as you pointed out already: this is a > discussion, so lets discuss :) The file names them selves might not be such a problem so long as the structure is well defined. Making sure the folder structures in evolution correspond to the folders in the file system would be a first step. This may either be done through convention or by configuration (such as a more detailed XDS) The file formats and the mime-type would be the most important aspects after structure. E.g ~/Email/Personal Account/Inbox > Martin, are you familiar with Cosimo Cecchi's Summer of Code project? > (http://code.google.com/soc/2008/gnome/appinfo.html?csaid=15C2B5BC19A9276A) It's a very interesting project, it actually seems more radical than my ideas but certainly is along the same lines. Having an index based file chooser is a very useful feature. > Probably a integration of his media manager into nautilus would solve > some of your problems? Although the main aspects of being able to run your files through any application outside of gnome is still very attractive. ergo: ssh from your laptop to your computer, your looking for a contact in your evolution account. You have the command line. P.S. I've taken cheese mailing list off the reply, don't want to flood their list.
