: Next edu meeting. Please answer asap...

Good morning edu crowd

I'm in the process of organizing another meeting and developer sprint in Randa 
next year. Somewhere around May or June 2011 but more about the date below.

Last year the bigger group there consisted of Amarok and th multimedia guys 
and gals. The smaller group were you. And I'd like to make the small group 
constant in this meetings. And the small group consists of you. That means I'd 
like to provide you with infrastructure next year again.

BTW: The other, bigger group next year consists of Nepomuk.

I was already in contact with annma about this and she told me that she and 
Aleix [*] would like to be near a network (think school network) to work with 
them and on this topic. And we were not sure if KDE e.V. would pay for two 
meetings (my counter proposal: one meeting somewhere else about the network 
topic and one in Randa about data and Nepomuk...).

Anyway annma proposed to bring this topic up here.

What do you think? This discussion is about the offer of the location and 
organization? Not necessarily about the topic of the meeting. I just want to 
fix the date to reserve the house, contact the cook and start to find 
sponsors.

So I'd like to set a first deadline for a decision for the middle of next 
week. When there starts no big discussion I'll decide then about the smaller 
group of the next Randa meeting (Konquest 2011).

And now two last things:

- Sebastian Trueg and me found a possible date for the meeting at the

[*][18:18] <annma> you can say in the mail that Aleix and me would prefer a
location near a network but that it's up to all people to tell what they
prefer

I have been in contact with a couple of universities that would be interested on hosting a KDE Edu meeting, they would even have some people who could help us (not with the same experience as Mario, of course :).

The thing is that I think that KDE Edu needs a lot of influence from the education community that we're not getting, making the meetings happen in schools or universities could help us with that. Also it would be nice if we could invite some teachers to the meeting as well.

I can contact those people and ask them to give me some definitive answer. (if anybody wants to contact them, you can ask me in private, I'm not disclosing just because they can't promise anything).

Hi Mario,

well we, that is Bèrto and me, will come - and Nepomuk is definitely very interesting in combination with KDE-Education :-)

As to the network "problem" - what exactly is expected in terms of results from such a network-meeting?

Cheers, Bina

As Aleix wrote, we would like to get in touch with our users and see KDE and 
KDE-Edu in a live situation in order to try to define what we can do better. 
Usually such a live situation is a networked classroom.

Last year meeting focused on rebuilding a KDE-Edu community and also addressed 
data. We succeeded a bit with having a logo and a new website and reviving 
interest in our goals as a community. But we still need to position ourselves 
towards teachers and users and the contact with users would give our team a 
new impulse in order to move our software forward. 

Lets see if Aleix can get a more precise answer and if we can make the main 
Edu meeting in a teaching environment next year. Or maybe someone else has a 
contact or an idea.
Of course that will not prevent edu people interested in data and Nepomuk to 
attend the Randa meeting!

Hope it's clearer, best regards,

Anne-Marie

Ok. If nobody shouts against it I'll write an email to the e.V. board tomorrow 
to see if they would sponsor two meetings. Will CC: this list.

If they agree I would invite you to Randa again. And probably the local 
educational highschool could participate somehow as they were interested 
recently about Open Source and Free Software at school. But don't know if I 
find the time to organize a lot about this. But I'll organize at least the 
infrastructure for a meeting!

[kde-edu]: Re: Next edu meeting. Please answer asap...

Morning

So Aleix and me discussed the topic and we decided to keep the kde edu project 
as group out of this years Randa meeting as the KDE edu project should focus 
on the other meeting and we don't want to endanger this.

That doesn't mean that kde edu people interested in the Randa meetings topic 
are not welcome there! Quite the opposite!

Hi List,

I work on KStars for those who don't know. As per my current plan, I
should be able to join without burdening the e.V. much (for funds) if
it is around late May / early June!

: cmake question

Hi,

I am a bit puzzled by the following:
we have "add_custom_target( kvtml_data )" in the CMakeLists.txt of 
kdeedu/data/kvtml/
Then in KHangMan CMakeLists.txt I have "add_dependencies(khangman kvtml_data)"
But when I build, if I forget the data, it still builds

What is it supposed to do then?
