I'm a happy user of revelation for nearly a year, and I have nearly
none complaints. The main two are:
- It's hard to control revelation with the keyboard alone. This is
mostly due to the key bindings, well, I mean, who would think of
'ctrl-insert' as the default for adding a new entry? I don't know how
often I typed 'Ctrl+n' and was rewarded with an empty list of
- I really dislike the split of revelation and the gnome applet.
Really. One lets me edit the passwords, the other one gives me a quick
and easy to use interface to access my credentials. Why is that? I'd
rather have revelation to have a single check box in the preferences
that enables a notification area icon. And also closing revelation would
minimize it to the tray (if the option is enabled), left clicking would
bring the window to front (unminimizing it if necessary), while right
clicking would popup the list of credentials much like the applet does now.
One note: I never used the search box, but it uses up a lot of panel
space. Having a tray icon instead of the applet would do away with it
which might not appeal to some. A solution to that could be a hotkey
like deskbar or tomboy use, pressing Ctrl-Alt-F5 or something :-)
I am perfectly willing to add the code to revelation (as soon as I
start to write it, that is), but I have no intention of maintaining a
private fork for months to come, so I'd really like to have this in the
main distribution ...
