Seif Lotfy has posted a ‘in progress’ screenshot of a new ‘People’ place for Ubuntu Unity.
Whilst he says that ‘right now it doesn’t do much [apart from] get the contacts from your Zeitgeist history and sort them’ he intends to dedicate his weekend on hacking it some more.
What a champ!
His to-do list reads as:
- Get contacts from libfolks (with all metadata) which can include Empathy, Evolution and Google contacts
- Log more usage of contacts from telepathy, evolution and other sources that play along with libfolks
- Allow sorting of contacts using Zeitgeist
- Find best possible grouping and sectioning
Update: I asked Seif whether the ‘blank person’ avatars would be replaced with photo thumbnails and, indeed, that is the case.
