Summary0013092: replace the current footnotes by in-frame footnotes
Descriptionthe team has asserted that footnotes should be removed from 1.5.x and be reimplemented later.

andreas came up with two good ideas:

- one should manually create the frames for the footnote's text
- by default, the footnotes are shown as endnotes at the end of the (flow of) frame(s).

i like both of them.

while the first need needs a bit more thoughts to get the details right, the second one could probably be easily implemented.

instead of simply dropping the footnotes, we should probably simply replace them with endnotes inside of the same story.

+1 about "inframe notes".
But i'm not sure whether there is a need or not for another frame. What matters to me is that the notes appear inside the area of the main text frame, not outside (below) it.

This issue is more a new feature rather than a bug fix. Making footnotes "inside frame" rather than "outside frame" will probaly rise several issues regarding the new behaviour in various cases.

My advice is : take a look at it, detect the issues, imagine solutions and then describe precisely these issues and the solutions here in bugtracker. You could also come to discuss them on irc but there is no garantee that somebody is available online.
