From Mandriva Community Wiki
List ideas for a better integration of Xfce in Mandriva Linux. Add your bugzilla# for each idea to be able to discuss it if needed.
Idea is quite simple - provide best Xfce experience with the Mandriva Linux, best distribution in the world.
So far, the XFCE One edition has been produced since the 2007.1 release:
- Fork/Customized version of the XFCELive 2010
- XfceLive 2010 Spring
Several versions are available on the mirrors:
- i586 & x86_64 for 2008.1 edition
- international, asia and extra-i18n (you can find the supported languages list for each iso on this page)
- add other mirrors or torrents

Please consider using Bugzilla to file your feature requests instead of this page!
The benefits of using Bugzilla instead of this page should be clear:
- Bugzilla is meant to track bugs as well as feature requests
- Discussions on one topic are easily possible and visible in the cooker mailinglist
- It is possible to vote for feature requests
- It is possible to use Bugzilla to determine which features should be implemented for which release and track the status of them
- If you want to see a list of all open feature requests, simply ask Bugzilla
Still, this Wiki page is useful to keep an overview of ideas that have been raised for the next release.
