* https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=433152 - Default look and feel (fixed in Rawhide)
 
* Default Xfce theme and background should be consistent with Fedora branding. Fixed in Rawhide.
 
* Drop Xfce Icon theme and use Fedora default. Thunar and xfce4-panel are affected. Fixed in Rawhide.
 
* https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=433573 - Mixer and trash applets in the default panel (closed)

* Disable tracker while running as live cd and enable it post installation. The setting EnableIndexing must be set to false in /home/fedora/.config/tracker/tracker.cfg.
 
 
== Rejected Ideas ==
 
 
* Xfce Notification daemon - http://goodies.xfce.org/projects/applications/notification-daemon-xfce. We could say "Welcome to Fedora".
 
** -1. This project is nearly dead upstream, see http://foo-projects.org/pipermail/xfce4-dev/2007-May/023096.html. Also it explicitly conflicts with gnomes notification-daemon. ATM we cant better use that, all the gnome stuff is pulled in anyway ;( If we really want to show a welcome message, we could do this with xfce4-tips - ChristophWickert

=== User switching ===
 
 
 
Should we include fast user switching? ATM the only possibility is to use fast-user-switcher-applet inside of xfce4-xfapplet-plugin, but this will pull in gnome-panel (I removed the dependency on gnome-applets in Rawhide recently). Another approach is to hack xfce4-session as Xubuntu does (as see at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=433150). - [[ChristophWickert]]
