Hi,

So like there are loads of requested apps on the Wishlist. Seems like only a few made it into UbuntuStudio Hardy....after months of waiting/hoping. Audio app list is fuller/better, but what happened to Video??

Is there info on when Wishlist items will be put in?

Thanks

Well I'm not a developer so anything I say is just my opinion on the matter and not official word. But not many developers frequent this forum so you may want to go ask this question on their irc chat channel and report the official answer back here for others.

Packaging an app (particularly one as big as a video editor) is a large amount of work and upkeep. It may be that the project simply needs more hands to help with this. The situation may also have some politics/administrative decisions behind it, but maybe not (like I say I'm not a dev). You may also want to look into how to package an app, and attempt to give them a hand with tackling that huge whishlist - many hands makes for light work.
