As well as 'is shared, be good to see 'is a share' (i.e. I'm sharing someone else's project).

Can we leave this until 2.2?

Subject: [Xerte-dev] Possible icons in Workspace

Hi all,

So from my conversation with Pat, I have taken a look at the feasibility of adding icons to Workspace to show-at-a-glance certain statuses:

  Flash vs Javascript
  RSS syndicated
  Shared with a collaborator
  (there may be others we can do that i'm not aware of)

I have rewritten the SQL query for Workspace to gather the required data and implemented the icons but as you can imagine Workspace soon gets cluttered (see image XOT_Icons_All). I have also been playing with the idea of only showing the images for the row that is selected (XOT_Icons_Selected) - but then I know you can select more than 1 row so not sure how to handle that...

What do you think?  I'm looking for ideas...
