quake, drop-down version

Asked by Albert Solernou on 2014-02-12

Hi all,
This definitely falls in the wishlist: I'd LOVE a drop-down version of terminator.

I've been using terminator every day during the last two years. It has all I need. However, I also like to press F12 and see a drop-down terminal. Currently I am using Yakuake... but it is not the same.

Is it very difficult to branch the project to do that? Does it figure in your roadmap or future plans?

Best,
Albert

p. s. - Love to terminator.

BTW: "Is it very difficult to branch the project to do that?"

Terminator uses bazaar for VCS, and bazaar is one of the more modern ones that makes branching (and hopefully eventual merging back) pretty simple. Unless you are talking about forking the project which is something else entirely.

It goes something like:
    bzr launchpad-login userid
    bzr branch http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~gnome-terminator/terminator/trunk/ feature-mynewfeature
    cd feature-mynewfeature
Do your code edits doing occasional:
    bzr ci -m "Log message"
When done:
    bzr push lp:~userid/terminator/feature-mynewfeature
Then from within Launchpad you can request a merge to trunk. I'd then review, test, possibly request changes, and once happy, merge into trunk for eventual release.

Can you help with this problem?
