|Summary||0015143: Remove the C-C-T (and replace it with features support?)|
|Description||The C-C-T information was useful at a time when the support was done by a small crew of core developers and when one of the few core functionalities could be missing on the target computer.|
(BTW, people do not seem to think that there might be a tool tip on that letters... myself, I thought about checking if only when I was almost finished with this ticket...)
- Most people doing support do not know what the letters mean
- On most systems Scribus is installed with all relevant dependencies and the information is not so important anymore.
- There are many more features (most of the time much more relevant!) than those three that are optional (and could be missing)
As a first step, i suggest to remove the C-C-T: there are more users worrying about things they're not concerned about than users being able to solve any issues by looking at at the C-C-T (in the last few years I've not eared of any issue that has been solved by looking at those letters).
I suggest that we first remove the letters from the about dialog and replace it with a new tab in the same window with the very same information, but without the abbreviation.
We can use this ticket to collect the other optional features that should be listed:
- probably each format provided by librevenge
We could have a field saying if the feature is optional (OSG, librevenge...) or recommended (lcms).
