The wiki is here with the initial tasks
As long as no one has any objections, i've taken the liberty of
assigning the start menu tasks to myself. I've been reading through
the freedesktop menu spec more thoroughly, and i think these would be
some great changes to make. Going with a standard is good enough in
it's own right, but i think implementing this would take care of a
number of other incidental issues (like app configuration and
user-customization of the menu). I'll take a closer look at the spec
as compared to the menu we have now, and see what changes need to be
As always, i'd love to hear anyone's ideas on this.

Thanks Colin. You did seem to be the logical choice but I did not want to sign you up without asking you :-)

Not a problem. :) I'd also be happy to volunteer some time on the
other Freedesktop spec items, as a good bit of it is related to the
menu spec (desktop-entry, the Root Menu stuff, etc.)
I can do this to 1.0 rel
- Add exit confirmation dialog
This dialog will be with (exit, logout to GDM, rebot, and shutdown) with some anim effects and implement some event to talk applications that lg3d is clossing
- I18N UI text
- Localize UI Text
this I can write some lg3d swing tool to easy translation to all needed leanguages and writing it to lg3d lang file witch will be xml file. Lg3d check language in lg3d conf file > load lang file (wich is make by swing tool > and in lg3d classes we can get property values by calling value name and we can the same mechanism to other apps.
I can strat do this in first days of new years, now I am preparing to commit at last rfe 387, 392, 242 .
- Create New Help tool (possibly using JDIC HTML)
this should be integretting with Root Menu I think
by clickng right mouse button and help item about.
I understanding goals for rel 1.0 and other my idea I will do if I found time

I still haven't heard anything from the jpackage folks, but i'm not
too suprised, what with the holidays and all. I'll try approaching
some of the project owners directly after new years, and i'll let you
all know if i hear anything.
I went ahead and volunteered for a few other things on the task list,
mostly the freedesktop/menu related stuff. I've been playing around
with some ideas for implementing the freedesktop menu spec and file
format, and i'll post my design plans when they're a bit more
concrete. In addition, i'd be happy to do the csh-to-sh porting of the
scripts. (Please feel free to say so if i'm biting off more than my
share of the task list; i'm always happy to share. :) )
