Ubuntu Unity Integration
- Still no word on CD space.
- Unity Launcher and Messaging Menu extensions set to be bundled with PPAs when next beta of TB 5.0 is released.
- De-RDF patch got some review from jcranmer (thanks!), and still undergoing review. A reminder that this needs to land this cycle for EDS integration to work, which is a must-have for our Ubuntu integration work.
- A read-only version of the EDS integration extension will be available towards the end of this week, or early next week. Implementing write capabilities next.
