Alright, so the first thing: should we use some sort of bugtracker or
For example, there are issues in Firefox right now. PF works well in
Chrome, but in Firefox it's difficult to go back to the 'album' view
once you clicked on a picture, it's as if the picture overlay was
"hiding" (even though they are visible) the breadcrumb links on top,
which are not clickable.

Yay, that's awesome, screw google! :)

Auth is a big thing, but more on that below...
Another is packaging: I am a Debian member and would love to ship
photofloat in Debian! There are a few things to do for this to work, see
http://bugs.debian.org/694259 for details. A short summary, this
* renaming the "binary" (main.py..)
* making releases (tagging the git repo would be a good start)
* removing external libraries and fonts from the git repo (use mr or
* separate code from data
* multiple gallery support

Some documentation would be great here, as I couldn't figure it out. :)
Also, where's that -deployment branch?
I had made some hacks for this, but it was quite ugly, and required
messing aroud with the .htaccess (to block access completely) and
patching the 011-display.js file (to hide the blocked folders).

Here's another santa claus wishlist:
* tag support (read tags from the EXIF metadata and make those
browsable / searchable)
* Nautilus / sendto integration (so that you can 'send to Photofloat'
from the file manage / shotwell / etc)
* Specifically: Darktable export functions (probably a darktable plugin)
* customization of the HTML output (add a copyright footer, change
title, etc, without changing the core of the code)
Semantics is the gravity of abstraction.
