I havent followed this dicussion in depth so excuse me
if this has been answered previously. The trash
content is supposed to be stored in a .trash folder. I
had the impression that user manipulated data shouldnt
be hidden in this manner. How would the user restore
his files?. is some kind of virtual directory going to
be provided on the user's desktop?.
Not related to the trash spec but there seems to be
inconsistency regaring what is supposed to be stored
under hidden directories and what should be exposed to
the end users. For example kmail stores its mails
under /home/Mail and Evolution 2 seems have moved the
mails into a hidden .evolution directory from what was
earlier a visible directory. Can somebody please
