There are now patches proposed on https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=604015 to fix the Persistent's Trash issue.

We should track them and help them to get reviewed and merged when ready.

History

#1 Updated by intrigeri over 5 years ago

It seems that we have never replied there in the last 5 months, after an upstream developer replied, so... ping?

#2 Updated by intrigeri about 5 years ago

Alan, what's the status on this one? It's now been 10 months since the last comment by upstream on their bug tracker.

Upstream's preferred solution wouldn't really be what we currently expect: files deleted from persistence would be immediately deleted and not go to trash. However, it would make the behaviour consistent.

There is a comment earlier this year arguing on the proposal we were hoping so far. So either we try convince upstream to merge the already proposed patches, or we decide to propose patches that implement their prefered solution.

Their preferred solutions seems to be good enough, so I'd rather go this way.

  • Type of work changed from Upstream to Communicate

#6 Updated by alant almost 5 years ago

I discussed with the person who proposed the patches on upstream bugtracker and they prefer to ask the freedesktop mailing lists, which they did in http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/xdg/2014-September/013351.html.

There have been activity on the ticket recently. I made a new comment to ask for their preffered solution. We have someone ready to implement it!

There was a reply to your question on the upstream bug, maybe you'll want to look into it?
