So nobody is directing development of nautilus similar to to
OpenOffice.org,Mozilla, or GIMP where there are planned features for
later release which get priority attention for the developers. Sure,
other features are developed too, but those projects usually have a set
of features being worked on or planned.
I'm the maintainer, and as such I direct the development. I have a list
of important stuff that has to be worked on. We have certain prioritized
features that we hope to work on for the next release.
However there just aren't that many developers (two basically), and I
also maintain other gnome packages, and have many other responsibilities
in Red Hat (such as fixing bugs in the betas). So, even if something is
prio one for the nautilus developers there is no guarante when it will
be worked on.
So, to the best of your knowledge, no one is currently working on
wildcard support? Know if anyone has attempted it in the recent past?
Its on my todo list (along with many other things). Nobody else have
expressed interest in working on it.
