Re: Extended attributes, Linux and GNOME

Before that time, tho, it would be most lovely to see Nautilus support
at least basic EA/ACL editing,

yeah. This requires an agreement on "standard" extended attributes, so Nautilus can provide common-sense UIs for them, and a generic UI for those attributes "not covered by the standard". Think "comments", "keywords" and the like. Perhaps the file format supports these kinds of attributes, but EAs could be a way to support them if the file format didn't.

and also make sure it cleanly handles
copying and moving files about with losing EA info.  That's a step
that's beneficial no matter how one looks at it.  ^,^

aha =)  We agreed to disagree, then agreed completely =).
