Retire app menu
Application menus have been a source of usability issues since they were introduced, despite attempts to improve them. We are therefore aiming to end their use by 3.32.0.
In the case of Disks, retiring the app menu is a little tricky. There are two approaches that I can think of:
- Go with the fairly major changes we've discussed in #28 . In particular, move the current menu items into the disk panel, and add a new primary menu with Help and About Disks.
- Split the existing header bar into two (in a similar way to Settings or Contacts), add a new menu on the left side, and change the icon in the menu in the right side.
The initiative wiki page contains more generic design guidelines, which might be useful.
