Please Don’t Hurt Me Remy

While applying a patch for the About->Plug-ins dialog the other day (a patch that gets us off of deprecated code.  Yay!) I was struck once again at how homely our certificate tray slide out is. It’s really quite ugly and it got me thinking: It’s an isolated piece of code; It’s a low-risk change; It’s potentially a very fun problem to work on (especially if you dig into the custom SWT controls).

It’s a perfect bug for some young would-be committer to step up to.

    I think signing info is more or less ok, at least it allows to copy information to the clipboard, though it is missing fingerprint info. Also, In my experience, it is harder to work with expandable controls when there is a really large list of things, so master-detail UI is usually work better in that case.

    BTW, it would be nice to fix issues with resizing about and feature dialogs. The info panels on those dialogs should be either fixed size or use sash.

    Hi! My name is Kimberly Horne and I have absolutely nothing interesting to say. Unfortunately for you I DO have an overpowering need to tinker with technology which is explains the presence of this journal. I mostly talk about games (video and tabletop), technology, tattoos, and my pets.

    If you're an Eclipse user you may find my Eclipse category more interesting.

    Similarly, if you're an Arduino nerd then maybe my projects might be of interest.

    Since I've discovered Twitter this journal has been neglected somewhat. If you really want to stalk me your best bet is to follow me on twitter.
