Subject [GitHub] cordova-windows pull request: CB-8056 Implement splashscreen for W...

Github user purplecabbage commented on the pull request:
    Is there a link to the conversation around this change? ( I assume it is [1] )
    Ultimately there are 2 pieces to splash-screen : 
    1. the platform/os splash screen built into every app
    2. the cordova specific plugin which processes preferences
    My understanding is that if you do NOT have the plugin installed, then the platform/os
splash is presented and dismissed automatically once the app has launched. The image(s) used
for this can and should be controlled by preferences in config.xml and this should be done
at build time, moving files, renaming files, modifying app manifests, ...
    If the splash-screen plugin is installed, we gain the ability to delay dismissing the
splash screen ( by emulating it with a full screen image which quickly replaces the platform/os
version )
    This is the way things are currently, and I DO completely support moving splash-screen
management back into the platforms so it can be processed before plugins are loaded, I just
want to make sure that we are moving on this for all platforms and that there has been enough
discussion/agreement around it.
    I think I expected that each of the plugin audit proposals should spawn it's own detailed
proposal, but I may be over administering things.  As long as we all agree that this is the
way forward, and this will be done for all platforms; +1
