Sorry for the TOFU but it is a not yet mentioned idea but in the same
What I would also like to see is a split in two "trees", a tree which
contains all that we would consider really belonging to GPE and
providing all and only just as much as to get a running GPE with a basic
set of base applications.
To this I would count the PIMs (and all that belongs to it), at max. one
sample game, a text editor and probably not much more. This would form
the "core GPE", thus maybe calling this tree "core" or such.
The idea is that people that want to test GPE or want to deploy GPE on a
new device can find all they really need in a small and well structured
In parallel to this we would have a second tree with "extra" which then
can contain subdirs for "games", "multimedia", "PIM", "graphics", etc.
And of course as third top-dir or in the first-level dirs is/are "Attic"
dirs for moving old stuff...
So, those were my €0,05 ;)
