Description

This tracker bug attempts to gather the fuzzy criteria related to "quality" so that they get proper weight on the 8.2 roadmap.

Examples: code size, boot time, activity startup time, few/no regressions, "first boot experience", browser quality, collaboration scalability.

All of these are "graded on a curve": we can't "fix" them, per se, but we can get quality goals such that each release will improve upon previous releases. (And when it's good enough, we'll set goals to ensure we don't backslide.)

The blocking bugs linked here set specific criteria we want to meet for the 8.2 release.

(In #7357) Moving blocker to 'release quality', since dennis thinks a high-quality 8.2 release won't have olpc-hardware-manager in it. But not a blocker, not a problem with F9 anymore.

(In #7378) Oops, didn't mean to delete the 'blocking' flag.

(In #7220) #4951 seems relevant. The activity updater definitely makes any newly-downloaded activities favorites, since that's the whole point. Upgraded activities stay as they were.

I'm assuming this bug has to do with 'Browse' at the moment; I think the same 'favorite if new, else leave as is' behavior is appropriate there as well.

Should I change the component to browse, or should we make this change in the sugar 'install' vs 'upgrade' code? (Since we'll be visiting the sugar side of the code to fix #7494 in any case.)

(In #6825) Suggested workaround for 8.2: install Firefox activity (http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Activities).

(In #6480) Still an issue in joyride-2169, linux 2.6.25-20080715.2.olpc.ef92c83e1c0d23a . So I don't believe this has been fixed upstream yet.

(In #7646) benzea: i think marco also wanted the corresponding screenshot pre-patch, to get an idea of "how bad" this currently looks. And, for completeness, you should also include the 'pulse' state of the progress bar, which pre-patch is inconsistent with the 'fraction' state.

While important, we're not going to be able to fix these issues in time for 8.2.0. Please individually mark any that you think are 8.2.0 polish-bugs according to the Trac conventions.
