Want List

1) FreeDestop compliant volume icon for the tint2 tray. Available applications, such as gvolwheel and volumeicon utilize alsa or pulseaudio backends. Although the OpenBSD Gnome Desktop port forced the inclusion of pulseaudio, utilization of the base sndio api would be preferred.

Great idea! I just installed 5.4 on a spare desktop here at work last week, and then added Xfce and my favorite apps, but I might have to give this a shot.

Depending on how quickly you get this done, you may want to submit it in the BSD Now tutorial contest, though it ends on Friday.
