  Description     : Frippery GNOME Shell extensions

The tarball includes several GNOME Shell extensions:

* Move the clock: Move the clock from the centre of the panel towards 
  the right. This isn't a very significant change, but it was the first 
  extension I wrote.

* Favourites in panel: Place a launcher for each favourite application 
  in the panel. It isn't possible to manage the list from the panel: 
  instead you can add, remove or move favourite applications in the dash 
  and the panel display will update to match.

* Applications menu in panel: Replace the Activities button in the panel 
  with an Applications menu. The menu is implemented using facilities 
  supplied by the shell so it doesn't behave exactly like a normal menu.

* Static workspaces: The GNOME 3 shell attempts to maintain just one 
  empty workspace. New workspaces are created on demand and when the 
  last application in a workspace is closed that workspace is removed. 
  This extension disables that behaviour.

* Shut Down menu: Replace the Suspend item in the status menu with Shut 
  Down. The dialog that this invokes includes all available shutdown 
  options: suspend, hibernate, restart and power off.

* Bottom panel: Add a bottom panel, including a window list, workspace 
  switcher and message tray button. Because the workspace switcher is 
  arranged horizontally the keybindings for changing workspace have been 
  altered to ctrl-alt-left/right. The message tray button shows and 
  hides the message tray, as the hot corner is hidden by the panel. If 
  no messages are available the button is blank. Right clicking on the 
  workspace switcher invokes a dialog to set the number of workspaces. 

The extension that I find interesting is the bottom panel extension, 
since I found that some old GNOME users are missing it in the GNOME 
Probably not all extensions in this tarball need to be packaged 
(especially, that there are other packages that already provide same 
functionaly, probably in a better manner)

Subject: gnome-shell-frippery extension looks pretty good as gnome-panel doesn't seem to be there anymore.

Hi all,
It would be nice to have this extension as there seems to be nothing
like gnome-panel anymore.

See the bottom-panel extension as part of the gnome-shell-frippery
extension list. That's the one which has all the things I'm looking
for. If somebody can up it would be grateful.
