Subject: gnome user interface: button order inconsistent with other gnome apps
From: Stefano Zacchiroli
Date: Sun, 22 Oct 2006 12:25:24 +0200
The GTK+ file selector used by the GNOME user interface of vim has the
open/cancel buttons in the order "open", "cancel".

This order violates the Gnome Human Interface Guidelines [1], and in
particular the recommendations for the button order in dialogs and
alerts [2]. Practically, this bother vim users used to other Gnome
applications (in Debian for example this has been reported twice as a
bug [3], [4]).

The attached trivial patch, applied to the Debian package, fixes the
problem by exchanging the button order. Could you please consider
applying it to the official vim release?

Many thanks in advance,
