BundleBin

Hi All,

I would like to announce a new little service, a pastebin like thing for bundles.  It is called the bundlebin and is available here:  https://bundlebin.sugarlabs.org/

You can upload a bundle to share it quickly.  It will remain online for ~12 hours.

This will be used by the new ASLO as it can move the bundles to the mirror if they are included in a published activity (coming soon :D).  But, hopefully it is useful to you outside of the new ASLO!

Thanks,
Sam

Sugar on a Stick going forward for F-22 onwards

Hi All,

With Fedora/SoaS 21 out for some time I think we have a good and stable release.

Firstly I'd like to thank the awesome test effort to get a large chuck
of testing done and fixes in for the deadline.

Moving forward I'm happy to coordinate and deal with the release
engineering side of things to get the release out, fixes in etc.

What I'd like help in is someone who is happy to coordinate testing
and general community communications and facilitation. As you might
have noticed this isn't one of my strong points! When I do remember to
send out notifications to the list it's amazing how people spring into
furious action and get things tested and fixes in place.

It's relatively straight forward, the Fedora schedule is always well
organised [1] as is their QA team.

Following the Fedora process, while slightly restrictive, has proven
to give us strong releases and deals with a lot of the back in process
so we don't have and I don't think it's in our interest in changing
that (and personally I have no interest to change that).

I'd also be interested interested to hear how people would like to
improve the release from a technical perspective. Is there anything
people have a few cycles to work and contribute on that they'd like to
see in the release?

The only change I currently plan is to drop the long dead
sugar-presence-service (it's been 5 years!!) and anything that depends
on it (eToys I'm looking at you!) as I think over 5 years to port away
from it is well and truly enough!

Peter

Quizas podes probar descargarlo en tu directorio de cache, pero probablemente vas a tener el mismo problema con otros paquetes.

Sugar Digest 2015-01-21

== Sugar Digest ==

In schools, all hardware and software bestow agency on one of three
parties: the system, the teacher, or the learner. Typically, two of
these actors lose their power as the technology benefits the
third. Ask a group of colleagues to create a three-column table and
brainstorm the hardware or software in your school and who is granted
agency by each. Management software, school-wide grade-book programs,
integrated learning systems, school-to-home communication packages,
massive open online courses (MOOCs), and other cost-cutting
technologies grant maximum benefit to the system. Interactive
whiteboards, worksheet generators, projectors, whole-class
simulations, plagiarism software, and so on, benefit the
teacher. Personal laptops, programming languages, creativity software,
cameras, MIDI keyboards, microcontrollers, fabrication equipment, and
personal web space primarily benefit (bestow agency to) the
learner. -- Gary Stager

1. Google Code-In. Wow. Finally a chance to catch my breath. Seven
intense weeks: 60 students completed more than 300 tasks for Sugar
Labs. The impact on Sugar Labs was even greater this year than in the
previous years we have participated: more diversity among the
participants, the mentors, the tasks, and a spirit of collaboration
while striving for excellence prevailed throughout the contest. Thanks
to Google and Stephanie Taylor for giving us this opportunity, to the
contestants who not only did great work but taught me a thing or two
along the way, and the mentors and community members who manned the
IRC channel 24/7.

I want to acknowledge the Top Ten+ from whom we will be selecting our
finalists this week (results announce in early February):

Ignacio Rodríguez, Daksh, samdroid, cristian99garcia, Ezequiel
Pereira, svineet, Gtrinidad, Jas Park, Rafael Cordano, Richar, Sergio
Britos, Aishmita Kakkar, Gabriel Lee, et al.

Also, some mentors (and community members) deserve special
recognition: Andrés Aguirre, Daniel Francis, Gary Servin, Gonzalo
Odiard, James Cameron, Jorge Ramirez, Mariah Villarreal, Rajul,
Rodrigo Parra, and Martin Abente Lahaye.

Finally, a few projects worth mentioning:

* Turtle Blocks JS plugins (Ignacio, samDroid, Daksh) [1]
* Turtle Blocks guides (Jas Park) [2]
* Activity reviews (Gabriel Lee) [3]
* Dasher app (Cristian Garcia) [4]
* Enhancements to Physics (Svineet) [5]
* Sugar bugs squashed (Ezequiel) [6]
* Butia Measure (Gtrinidad) [7]
* Simple scrolling interface for Sugar (Rafael) [8]
and much much more.

2. As mentioned above, we have a number of new Turtle Blocks plugins
(for both the Python and Javascript versions) as a result of Google
Code-in. One of the more interesting inspirations for plugins comes
from mashape.com, a repository of APIs for everything from translation
services to a bicycle theft alert system. As Sugar becomes more
web-friendly, we can take advantage of web services and also
facilitate our users to craft their own tools and services. It is fun
and empowering.

=== In the community ===

3. The Free Software Foundation has put together a nice video on the
core ideas behind Free Software. See [9]

=== Tech Talk ===

4. Xevents [10] is a TurtleBlocks plugin that makes it easy to design
different types of accessibility interfaces through a variery of
physical sensors types. It is being developed at FING by Andrés
Aguirre and Alan Aguiar and was the focus of some of the Google
Code-in work of Rafael Cordano.

5. For you OLPC XO 4 users, James Cameron has been working on enabling
the second processor. He reports "about 38% improvement. For CPU tasks
like rendering, alt/tab, kernel compiles, the improvement is somewhat
more than 38%. For single threaded tasks that rely on memory
bandwidth, performance is lower because the memory controller is
shared between two cores." When asked how it impacts Sugar, he said
"it feels faster and more responsive."

6. Martin has announced the tarballs for the last 0.103.x UNSTABLE
release of Sugar before 0.104 STABLE. (We delayed the release a few
weeks in order to take advantage of all of the bug fixes coming in
from Google Code-in.) With this release we reach the API, UI and
String freeze [12].

* http://download.sugarlabs.org/sources/sucrose/glucose/sugar-runner/sugar-runner-0.103.2.tar.xz

It's time to switch focus on updating translations, everyone can
contribute through or new Pootle instance [13]. We have time until
February 13, before the 0.104.0 STABLE release.

Disk volume lost from frame

When a system running Sugar has a USB drive mounted, it is visible in
the frame and the Journal volume toolbar.

If the system suspends, and then resumes some time later, sometimes
the USB drive is not remounted, and has to be removed and reinserted.

This seems to be caused in gvfs where the media insertion event
timestamp is more than five seconds before the current time, leading
gvfs code to mark the volume as not to be automounted.

http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/12711

In other desktops, when automounting is skipped, the user clicks on
the icon for the drive to mount it.

Should Sugar have a feature for manual mounting?

sugar and python-dateutil in Fedora 22

Hi All,

The sugar toolkit (for both gtk2 and gtk3) uses python-dateutil and
they're rebasing it from 1.5 to 2.x, would it be possible for someone
to review to see if there's any changes needed in the code please?
