Re: [SLOBS] [SLOB] meeting reminder and some open issues to discuss


Hi all,

Would like to add a quick motion to ensure we share the Vision Proposal 2016 [1].
Not the goal part of the page, at first.

Best regards from France.

           Lionel.



2016-04-29 16:29 GMT+02:00 Walter Bender <walter.bender <at> gmail.com>:
Our next meeting will be Friday, 6 May, at 16 UTC.

We have a few outstanding motions and topics of discussion:

* Samson Goody's i18n proposal for Yoruba (See the proposal circulated by CJL [1]);
* Updating to GPL3 license (See discussion thread [2]);
* GSoC mentor payments: it has been proposed (in a private email) to let mentors have access to the stipend paid by Google. We had decided in 2009 to pool these stipends into the general Sugar Labs funds and had not revisited this decision in the ensuing years. At least one mentor has mentioned that the money would make a big difference. It seems we could accommodate individual decisions on behalf of each mentor as to whether or not they keep the stipend or pool it in the general funds, but we should discuss it.

regards.

[GSoC] Font Editor: thoughts on UI/UX

I'll be spending some time this week thinking about the UI/UX for the font editor activity and I'm inviting everyone involved to share their ideas here as well.

A good starting point is the core ideas from the human interface guidelines(https://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Human_Interface_Guidelines). Particularly, I'm interested in how we can make this an activity, not an application.

Font editor applications like TruFont, Robofont, Glyphs, etc. assume a high level of understanding of what a font is and how one is made. Per the HIG we need to keep in mind our users are inexperienced, young and international.

One example of software with the UI/UX feel I would like to see is the original Kid Pix for the black and white Macintosh. You can read about it here: (http://red-green-blue.com/kid-pix-the-early-years), or use it with an emulator here: (https://jamesfriend.com.au/pce-js/).

Also, is there an easy way we could include Logo(Turtle) scripting? If not that, some way users can make fun generative fonts on their first try?

Alerts in Sugar

Hi,
    I am trying to add two alerts ( one Alert() and other ErrorAlert()
) in an activity. But instead of appearing one 'below' the other, the
second alert bar appears 'behind' the first one.

How to show both the alerts one below other when popped up simultaneously?

Thanks,
Utkarsh Tiwari

Newbie on Sugar

I'm looking for instructions for a newbie to get started on building HTML 5 activities for Sugar.

The students in question are in high school, and have minimal coding experience. Typical equipment is either a Mac or Windows laptop. No prior OLPC or Sugar experience.

Ideas? Starting points?

My goal is to try this out with some of our younger members at OLPC-SF, and go from there.

Cheers,
Sameer

Re: [support-gang] Screenshot of gnome desktop (OLPC OS)

Sebastian,

Thanks. I had vaguely remembered making some screen shots in gnome - 
that was how I did it.
I'll forward this info.

Tony

Re: [SLOB] meeting reminder and some open issues to discuss

Caryl has four open motions to discuss as well (See [3]).
CJL's discussion of Samson's proposal is found below. The proposal itself can be found here at [4].

Chris Leonard cjl at sugarlabs.org

Dear SLOB Members, I have been asked to assist in the development of localization proposals for possible funding by Sugar Labs and in that capacity, I have been working with Samson Goddy to refine a clear and specific proposal to support some of the L10n work he would like to undertake in Nigerian languages. Part of the overall effort as Translation Community Manager obviously includes developing a clearly defined process/format for presenting these proposals to the SLOB for consideration/action, development of which Laura Vargas has advocated, and I concur that a well documented process is needed. I will be developing wiki page(s) to help guide potential applicants and define a clear and transparent process, but I do not want to make Samson's request wait until such formal action is completed before putting a proposal to the SLOB. To some extent, it is necessary to hand walk at least one proposal through the process and make notes on how the SLOB want it to proceed in future. I have attached some draft language for the terms and deliverables of a proposal to do L10n work into the Yoruba language of Nigeria. These terms were developed in collaboration with Samson and he has requested that I present them to the SLOB for action at their earliest possible convenience. Neither Samson Goddy (cc'ed) or myself have access to the SLOB mailing list and so I have used individual addresses and cc'ed the SLOB list (for the record). I hope that is acceptable. In my role as TCM I feel I should act both as an advocate for language communities and as a steward of the funds available through the TripAdvisor grant for such efforts. This dual role does not need to be in conflict, but does require walking a fine line and I think it is important to point out the ultimate decision to fund or not fund is a SLOB responsibility. I do anticipate (and included in the terms) a role in monitoring performance of any funded L10n effort and signing off on completion of milestones. I would like to act as an advocate on behalf of this proposal in the form of seeking to address any questions that I might be able to answer on Samson's behalf about technical details, in particular. Some of the terms proposed (e.g. start-up cost milestone upfront) are an attempt to try to address some of Samson's specific challenges (a young man operating in a resource constrained environment) and are, of course, subject to discussion and hopefully mutually acceptable compromise. This is an opening bid to see if this set of terms is generally acceptable to the SLOB. I would like to acknowledge that the overhead costs (project management fees) are not insubstantial (roughly one-third), but I think in this instance they represent an investment in potential future work to be done in other languages by this contributor who has shown a history of making useful volunteer contributions, both personally and by team-building in Igbo. I leave it to the SLOB to define for itself the conditions under which this decision will be made (e.g. formally moved/seconded for a vote, scheduled for a future meeting, discussed/voted by e-mail, etc.) but Samson has expressed that for him, time is of the essence. Thank you for your consideration. cjl +++++++++++++++++++++++++++ This proposal is for the translation of Sugar user interface and certain Sugar Activities into the Yoruba language (ISO-639 code - yo). Milestone 1 - The initial payment of $350 USD will cover startup costs (internet connection fees, localizer recruitment/training, etc.). Payment is to be made upon successful completion of contractual arrangements with fiscal sponsor (SFC). Milestone 2 - Glucose - Payable upon completion and upload to Pootle of the PO files for sugar, sugar-toolkit-gtk3, OLPC_switch_desktop will be for $1,350 USD. Included in this milestone is a $300 USD project management fee, in addition to fees of approximately 40 cents/word for the projects included in this milestone. The uploaded files must pass all "critical" error checks (as flagged by the Pootle software) and be approved by the Sugar Labs Translation Community Manager, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld. Milestone 2 must be completed prior to Milestone 3. Milestone 3 - Fructose - Payable upon completion and upload of the PO files for Calculate, Chat, ImageViewer, Jukebox, Log, Paint, Pippy, Portfolio, Read, ReadETexts, Record, Speak, Terminal, TurtleArt, Web, Write will be for $2,300 USD. Included in this milestone is a $675 USD project management fee, in addition to fees of approximately 40 cents/word for the projects included in this milestone. The uploaded files must pass all "critical" error checks (as flagged by the Pootle software) and be approved by the Sugar Labs Translation Community Manager, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld. Total anticipated costs for all three milestone payments will be $4,000 USD. All projects are hosted on the Sugar Labs Pootle server at http://translate.sugarlabs.org/yo/ Translation may be performed off-line with subsequent upload to the Pootle server. see attached file for further details of cost estimation.
