Feature #6254: Make it easy to empty Trash on persistent volume
Make sure Trash patches proposed upstream get reviewed and merged
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.

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.

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.
