The "More Tools Suggestion" (MTS) Framework -- Draft


This scratchpad page is the starting point for the draft specification of a framework or module called "More Tools Suggestion" (MTS).

MTS should the support the following purpose:

1a) PRIMARY GOAL: Give novice users hints about tools that are useful in a particular context even if the are not installed.

1b) CONDITION: The tool suggestions - especially for not-installed tools - should be non-obstrusive. The advanced user should have a global option to turn off the suggestions.

2) NICE-TO-HAVE: When the user chooses a not-installed tool, the distro specific package manager should be used to start the installation process for the chosen software.
