It might be we were planning to ship a static copy in the distribution,
but never did that? The apps list is 250k of XML, not a lot but not
completely trivial either to just download by default. Though I bet
gzip would do wonders on it.

Pushed the patch as discussed in irc. (That code would have been
broken even if the plan was to ship a static list).

OK, here's a followup with bug numbers and summary status of the stuff we've fixed:

Deal with a "wizard" later.

Colin fixed, in Rawhide now.

I think the answer again is an explicit sign up process with a "wizard"
before we launch Firefox when you start.

I fixed, in Rawhide now.

> * Hard to find out how to add more stocks to the bigboard

Marco suggested splitting "Sidebar Preferences..." into
"Sidebar Preferences" and "Widgets". I'm not sure that really helps,
since a lot of people won't know "Widgets". The Preferences dialog
would be pretty tiny too. No bug filed pending inspiration.

Please be aware that rawhide is frozen, and if you have builds that you
wish to appear in Fedora 9, you will need to follow

Thanks for the link. To clarify, anything I described as "In Rawhide", I
believed was built prior to the freeze on Tuesday and in the current
compose.
