Just followed the procedure on my OPO and it has gone flawlessly! Apps don't launch always, thought. I once opened the settings app successfully, but now every app crashes right after lauching.
mainly C and C++ programmer

RE: I need help reorganizing the Wiki
I think you are right planning to reorganize the wiki. I think I will help if you like.
Your sheme is the more logical solution as far as I can say. Anyway, I would add a section like "Daily Use" or something like that, oriented to non-developer users where is explained how to use non-obvious features of ubuntu touch (like for example the already existent guides about CalDav and Libertine). Maybe that is supposed to be the "Documentation" section?
RE: Does LoquiIM work?
at the moment there are some problems with Loqui, but there are also some workaround solutions.
Join the telegram group of Loqui https://telegram.me/joinchat/BlpqfQk1L0l0PJTnM02yxQ and ask there if you want real time support.
RE: [Discussion] File Manager improvements
1-2-3-4) The answer will cover all the four points.
I would leave outside my post the need of the File Manager app by hackers, coders, testers, developers, computer enthusiasts, ... this is an actually important point but I won't cover it here. So, speaking about standard users:
In a perfect containerized ecosystem there is no need for a File Manager. Each app should be perfectly capable to handle their data in a fast and transparent way, the user should not even know about single file operations at the bottom of the hierarchy pyramid of abstraction provided by a perfectly isolated system. For example, when downloading a file, he shouldn't care about where physically is stored the file, but he just cares about accessing it with others apps. Anyway, a perfectly isolated system would be the heaven, and we are on the Earth. Even a perfectly isolated system would deal sometimes with external data which cannot parse (a old backup USB key filled with tons of mess) and apps would not always provide all the functionality to accomplish everything a user wants to do with the data, or an app could not be containerized at all !! For example current apps for desktop running on ut are not containerized, Libertine can provide some containerizationish, but not complete at all. Another example is the gallery app which still can't move photo from and to the SD card ( yet ). To fill these holes, here the file manager comes. It put the user a level below the abstraction stage he should be when he uses a containerized system, where it can manually do what the apps miss to do, bypassing and working below all the container and limitation infrastructure. (this not in the meaning of security threat: the goal is to do what apps miss to do, not what the container framework prevents to do. Security is a very long topic, and I won't consider security implications now). Basically he can behave in the same way he would do in a non containerized system, like classic desktop/server ones. For this reason, the file manager app should ignore limits due to containerization and being just a normal file manager, like every FM else. Surely, thought the convergent goal of ut, it should have an UI working on both desktop and phones, but this is speaking about how it should look like, not how it should work like.
What I said here also apply to the terminal app.
I hope I explained how I see the topic cleary, but as I am not a native speaker, I would answer if someone miss some meanings.
RE: FUSE support (File System in User Space) support?
I know I could just install some package, in fact my request is to make these little packages already installled by default in future OTAs.
