Default Out of the box Touchscreen/tablet support.

There was one tester that drop by the test list and mentioned that the
touchscreen on his Lenovo Ideapad S10-3t did not work which raised the
question what's the current status on out of the box touchscreen/tablet
support ( single/multi ) in the Kernel/Xorg/Gnome in Fedora?

Given that there are more and more touchscreen/tablets coming of the
product line and they are getting increased popularity with end user
perhaps it should be considered a F14 feature trying to get the best out
of the box touchscreen/tablets experience for the end user?

Perhaps the project could try to sponsor those that are willing to work
on it by providing them with tablets?

I think that particular issue is a development one - it's a missing or
broken driver. Not a matter of implementation at the desktop level. I
agree that the general case warrants consideration, though; assuming the
kernel / X layers provide proper support for a touchscreen device, our
desktop touchscreen experience should be good.
