honoring max_participants

I have been working on having the collaboration system honor the
maximum number of participants in a shared activity. I have a patch to
meshbox that will show/hide the Join button if the maximum number of
participants has not/has been reached, thus preventing someone from
joining an activity that is oversubscribed, but enabling them to join
if someone leaves. (Right now, we put no limit, even though the
activity specifies a limit.)

The issue I am struggling with is that the specification of
max_participants is set in the activity instance, which means that it
is not accessible directly from the activity bundle. So I am proposing
we add max_participants to activity.info. We can set max_participants
from that value. This need not break existing activities and the
default can still be 1, AKA, no sharing. But if an activity does
specify max_participants in activity.info, then we can enforce the
limit.

Comments/alternative suggestions?

regards.

olpc-france, my summary

Lionel gave a nice demo of Sugarizer in progress, with Journal items
shared through a server.

I presented Sugar development process and how to get involved.  Also
talked about Sugar Web.

Jon Nettleton presented Open WebOS via hangout.  Is an interesting
platform, and the UI very much like Sugar.

Christoph Derndorfer and Bastien Guerry raised the question "how will
Sugar be in 2021?".  I think is up to the people getting involved.
Devs, deploys, pedagogues.

There were also good talks about learning (Teachers engagement in
technology). Also enjoyed the Semantic Web talk.

I tried to hack as much as possible.  Worked with Hiou and Loic in a
web activity that talks with Hiou's translation AI library.  Helped
Tony Anderson to get Flash installed in XO-1.  Gave a Sugar intro to
youngers that are going to work in Madagascar deploy.

Thanks a lot to the organizers, and to Loic for hosting me :)

Cheers,

Last day in Google Code In - San Francisco

As some of you may know, this week was the "Google Code In" winners ceremony,
where Ignacio Rodriguez from Uruguay and Jorge Gómez López from El Salvador, our finalists,
their parents and I on behalf of SugarLabs,
came to San Francisco. This is brief report,
to share the experiece with the community.
The event was perfectly organized,
with a excelent work from Stephanie Taylor,
and her team. They shown not only profesionalism,
but love by the project.
We participated with other 9 projects.
The event started the last Sunday at the night,
with a presentation of all the winners, and food.
Googlers gave us food, a lot of food, all the time :)
The Monday we had a visit to the Google campus,
with the official prizes ceremony,
and a talk from Chris DiBona, Director of Open Source at Google.
Later some Googlers gave us talks about the projects where they work, and about their career.
All the talks were different, some more technical,
some more human, but all had good advices for the kids.
The Tuesday was a day to know the city, 
we could choice between go to Alcatraz Island,
or to do a tour in Segway for the city.
The Segway are fun devices, and we had a little
training before doing the tour. Ignacio said the 
Alcatraz excursion was very fun too.
Later we went to the Academy of Sciences,
(is like a giant museum but alive, have collections,
a beautifull aquarium, a planetarium, and so.
We had a "Behind the Scenes Tour", with a guide,
and the possibility of see places not opened to the public,
like the places where the researchers work.
Today was the last day, we went to Google offices in SF
and we had the possibility of present every one of our projects.
Later we went to San Francisco State University,
to meet Sameer Verma, who did a interview to
Jorge and Ignacio.
All the week was a very nice experience, we could talk face to face 
with our students, students from other projects,
and other mentors. We interchanged experiences,
about how they manage GCI and GSoC contest,
and I tried to start contacts with other projects 
related to us. In fact tomorrow I will visit the 
Wikimedia offices (is amazing how many internet
companies and groups are in the SF area)
I will upload photos when return home,
just need do a selection, SF is a incredible place,
I took 1000 photos!
Sameer already shared photos from the OLPC SF
meeting the last Saturday, from my part,
I enjoyed participate in the meeting.
I talked about the features in Sugar 0.100
and 0.102, the webactivities, 
and other trends in Sugar development.
They shared the project they have, as the work in Pathagar and statistics visualization.
I hope we can work more connected in the future,
SugarLabs and OLPC SF.
Regards,

I see that I need to use max 800x600 images.

If I wanted to remove all the <h1></h1> from every slide I should do it
more carefully. I did wonder if <h1></h1> is *required*, but I think
not. I should get all the words saved, before adding images. The
opposite of what I tried!

I am guessing that the "Style" must be decided and set, before starting
work.

I am not sure how to optimise the location of the images before starting
work.

When you brought up the subject, I had been playing with Sugarizing
http://www.w3.org/Talks/Tools/Slidy2/Overview.html#%281%29 - it would
probably be a long time before *I* had it ready to share though!

I am not sure if I have tried that, I imagine it would work. An
advantage of a hdd install is that, I think, the uncompressed image
*sometimes* seems to handle auto-saving the Journal better. In my
experience you need more patience with a USB stick than with hdd
install.

Liveinst is the command I would use for a hdd install.

hdd install is good for using an old "spare" machine, but I think that
the philosophy of a child having their very own learning environment by
a USB stick is one I would like to try to make more easy for new sugar
learners.

Browse activity and FTP sites support

Hi folks,

I'm having problems browsing on FTP sites in Browse activity.

I'm using Browse activity version 156, I guess that is the last, right ?

When I went to ftp, url like: ftp://debian.netcologne.de/debian-cd, a 
page error was showed saying:

"This wep page couldn't be loaded"
Try again.

I added on browse.py file a log on line 736, like this:

logging.warning('load_eror_cb, uri: ' + uri + ' | web error code: '+ 
str(web_error.code))

The line showed when running Browse activity is:

1397314748.301408 WARNING root: load_eror_cb, uri: 
ftp://debian.netcologne.de/debian-cd | web error code: 101

So the Web error code reporting by Webkit is 101, what means ?

Has Webkit support for browsing on FTP sites ?

Thanks in advance.

Gustavo.

A Better ASLO

Hi,

I like the idea of modernizing ASLO. I was chucking around some implementation ideas here: https://gist.github.com/SAMdroid-apps/ad2edbbdb06b70470225 .

If we did it with json, python is cool with json. This could let us integrate sugar and ASLO really well + easily with sugar (maybe an ASLO activity?).

One thing I would love is github integration. Github provides a url you can go to for each repo to get a zip made. This is cool, considering .xo is just a .zip.

We could also use disqus or some other easy thing for comments.

500 Internal Server Error at SL background design contest website

I've attached a screenshot, also CC'ing this to the development mailing list.
I submitted a png with the form filled completely and this happened.
I've tried multiple times, but the error persists.
This needs to be fixed.

Also, why can't we submit SVGs? They render perfectly fine in sugar-build ...
