Ok, I have a few suggestions, based on my limited experience with Mint 13. I just want to throw these ideas out there, if they can be implemented, great, but I understand if there are more pressing concerns.
1. Mintupdate - show the source repository of each update, in the list of available updates. This could be implemented as simply a new view column that could be toggled on or off, and used for sorting. I think this would be beneficial, especially for people who add custom repositories, and this would also be an additional way of assessing which updates are reliable, in addition to the levels system (which doesn't even work for custom repos).
2. Workspaces - I like the dynamic workspaces that you can add as you need them, but I dislike that they're in a one-dimensional line. I think having workspaces in a 2d grid allowed for more flexibility and a faster workflow in certain situations, especially when you have to do a lot of hopping between several different applications. I have a feeling this could be asking a bit much, but I'd really love it if you could stack the workspaces in several "rows", giving back the 2d functionality to them. The workspace applet on the panel could respond to the scrollwheel to switch between "rows".
3. Cinnamon - would it be possible to get the same functionality as in Ubuntu, where maximized windows are sort of "melded" with the panel (when the panel is in the top edge)? I'm not sure if there already is some way to make this happen, but I'd really like it. I like to keep my panel hidden to maximize screen space, but this brings the problem that I can't see the clock without hovering on the panel.
