Hi Bernhard,

Thank you for your reply, although we didn't not think of checking the email archive until recently.

I for one don't consider myself as "expert" in this field - especially

as contact for a university project - but perhaps one of the other team

members would be able and willing to serve as contact.

 "expert in the field", we were not referring to top-level researchers 
or developers, we are just looking for someone to act the client role ("client" is just a paperwork 
term, no obligation attached): as long as one has got a few years of experience in the 
area of UI design, it's good enough. The purpose of having such person 
supervising this academic project is for us to have a relevant, 
informative feedback/second opinion, and for us to learn from the 
interaction of this experience. We will appreciate the effort of anyone 
who is willing to help us on this project.

Currently we are 
planning on making the renovation two stages: the first one is to create
 side tool bar for better (wide) screen utilization (something like the one shown on,
 and the second to 
have some "smart" algorithm to put only tools relevant to the user's 
current intention in that bar. However, due to that the project has to 
finish in almost exactly one-year's time (from today), during which we 
will be in our fourth-year study or on internship, we doubt that we will
 be able to reach the second stage. But we will try.

This would allow us to review your changes / new UI and implement them

(or at least some of them) to the main repository, if you can license

them under LGPL 3+ and MPL.

We will follow and use the LGPL3 and MPL licenses, and thank you for mentioning them.

Looking forward to your reply.

Xi, George, Kevin, Yu
