Timalex added a comment to T6731: Increase volume control.

Apparently it is possible to have more fine-grained control, by holding the shift key while adjusting the volume. I personally would prefer the fine-grained control to be the default behavior, alternatively there is an issue of discoverability.

I don't know the technical limitations.
But since Intel intend to replace Beignet I would expect to have only one of them installed at a time to avoid potential conflict.

Ideally as a service to the users they would be suggested to use this package instead of Beignet and vice versa depending on their processor.

Timalex added a comment to T678: f.lux.

Will attempt a qualitative argument. The clones I've tried, even the nicely integrated one here, including on Android don't come close to the color filtering quality of f.lux. The clones give the impression that it's just a linear red/yellow color filter slapped on top of the screen. f.lux. has got it down to a science and for example understands that light in the green spectrum affects wakefulness as well. Also movie mode is a very useful compromise when you want to watch a movie without turning it off or having too awful colors.

My understanding is that it's more common to use several specific versions of WINE that are downloaded inside of POL. Using the system version is just one of many options. So I'd say it's not completely necessary to wait for the system version of WINE to polish up, though it would be even better of course.
