I was looking at the Launchpad.net and came to this page (see the screenshot below). I started wondering if there are any desktop applications for using Launchpad.net without the necessity of a web browser.
Are there any?
This is commonly used for a number of command-line tools, such as those in the ubuntu-dev-tools package,
There is also a desktop client called Ground Control . which mostly focuses on bugs & branches.
Also under development is a Unity Lens which currently can search people, packages & bugs by number. This doesn't use the Launchpad credentials in the screenshot, but the anonymous access.
There is a list of programs that use the Launchpad API.
It contains desktop applications (eg. Bughugger), but I could not find a mention for a full-blown desktop client.
