Unity’s ‘People’ Place gets pictured

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

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.
