Hi Mirek,

Please wait with the text until after this week's IRC chat, where we
should finally reach consensus on all the controversial topics --
including button labels and the welcome text.

Do we have the consensus now, please?


Yes, here are the decisions [1]:
* Keep sidebar on the left for LTR locales, have it on the right for RTL
locales.
* Use thumbnails, but indicate file type using colors or badges. -- We
still need to design this, but if we don't do it in time, having no color
codes for this release is fine and we'll put them in the next one.

IMHO, it's a bad decision :
it clearly means that the design is incomplete.
And it's not during the Beta phase that such work can be started.

My suggestion is to postpone the start center for the 4.3 release.
It's possible because the current start center is still ok.
It will give you the minimum time to perform design and dev tasks in a calm way. People from QA, translation and documentation will also appreciate.
It will also allow you to handle other use cases (already defined in this mailing-list)
- how to show meta data : file size, creation/modification date, full path...
- how to filter/sort by type
- maybe some security questions ?

My suggestion is motivated with the template manager in mind : big changes were made at the last minutes and it was difficult for everybody involved. And template manager is still far from perfect.

So it seems obvious to postpone it. Otherwise, you'll repeat previous mistakes.

Michel
