Re: [gnome-about] Title box is a hyperlink


Sorry about the language and tone! But I really think this is not a 
good thing (TM)

I think the best way to go would be to have a generic GtkXhtml or 
whatever it is called in an enhanced GnomeAbout Dialog. This is a 
dialog after all so you could add an html page with links, logos, 
mailtos etc...

And we keep the old About for backward compatibility reasons!
