Thanks for the super-awesome work everyone's been doing! I have my
hands full merging everything thrown my way :-)

Just wanted to report what I think are some nitpicky issues with the
recent features/patches:

- - - - -

(1) Currently the yum updater checks every hour whether it has run
once during the day or not. However, if it runs and fails due to poor
network connectivity at a point, I guess it won't check again during
the day. Is there some way to use the exit code that yum returns so
that it can have multiple tries.

(2) the icons is placed in a ui invasive way (extreme right), moving
every other icon to the left, i'd rather have it as the left most icon

(3) it pops up a modal type dialog, a user can change into
home/neighborhood/fried view but cannot change to an activity (for eg,
log) and thus can't copy paste content from it

(4) i guess setting the gconf key enables both anonymous and
personalized reporting

(5) we need a tool at the server end convert all the info into human
digestible form :)

(6) the feedback icon isn't sugarized, though i'll try to use the one
sent by "Frederick Grose"

== Re: microformat updater ==

(7) If it crashes once due to poor internet, it doesn't run again
properly until sugar is restarted (occurs intermittently)

(8) Creates a journal entry without checking for the existence of a
bundle file (this issue probably exists with the present updater in
sugar/mainline as well)

(9) Browse with tabs crashes *everytime* we close a tab. Already
discussed, temporary fix is to use original cairo version 1.08 until
someone debugs the actual issue.
