What should be the next major feature?

GNUnet devs and users are always full of ideas, but the priority of features is not always obvious.
Please let us know what you would like to see next (log in to vote).

Of course ;-)

The problem has been narrowed down (to GTK) and I'm working on a fix.

In my opinion the userbase is missing, because Gnunet is still difficult to compile, install and configure. How about using the openSUSE Build Service to build rpm's for openSUSE, Mandriva and Fedora ?

There are gnunet packets in the build service already, but they are obsolete and unusable due to the missing gnunet-setup script... :(

I think the most important feature for daily use and to get more content is a shared directory.
And I would also like to have a webinterface for gnunet.

@FritzX:  I wasn't aware of th build service, thanks.

@wum:
shared directory: ack
webinterface: In which way would a webinterface do a better job than the existing clients?

In our local network we have one computer thats running nearly 24/7. We used to run mldonkey on it, all shares and downloads were saved on that machine. At the same time all  clients in the network could search and select downloads via webinterface. This is very comfortable because no further probgrams have to be installed on the other clients and its good for the network because this way its easier to have a filesharing application running 24/7.
If i remember right in gnunet the clients of a local network can access the gnunet-daemon running on another machine, but the clients have to stay switched on while downloading because the files are stored on their harddisk, right?

I think this feature is not first priority for most users but for small local networks it would be nice.

Understood.

That's right.  :-\
