CyanogenMod is #1 in the custom Android ROM community. The skillful team of developers recently celebrated surpassing ONE MILLION unique installs across the broad range of devices they support.
While a majority of those installs are of the CyanogenMod v7 variety, nearly everyone is focusing on the next big thing, CM9. Now that ICS (Android v4.0) source has dropped, they have to figure out their approach to future development regarding CMSettings and user experience. Markus Guidry posted a message on his Google+ page asking for users to share their thoughts and ideas. At this point he believes 3 viable options have emerged:
1. Spread DeviceParts features to appropriate existing Settings categories (Agreed to be the most ideal solution, but has huge technical issues behind it.)
2. Remove DeviceParts to a standalone app
3. Lump DeviceParts as one category in Settings
If you have any great ideas or thoughts you’d like to share with the CyanogenMod development team, there are a couple ways you can help. First you can comment on Markus Guidry’s Google+ Page or head over to the CyanogenMod Wiki TalkPages. The CM9 proposed layout can be found on the CyanogenMod Wiki at this LINK.
