Desktop Polish for Fedora 12

This page is an attempt to collect some of the small polish bug fixes and changes that the Fedora Desktop Team is doing for the Desktop in Fedora 12. Of course, there is no strict definition of what makes a bug a polish item vs an ordinary bug. And a lot of our bug fixing work happens upstream and is thus not specifically tracked as Fedora contribution. But this list may still give some indication of the amount of polish that the Fedora 12 desktop is receiving.
