Re: Meeting with cordova committers

you are right gonzalo, and I had been working on the project on weekend and have found a way out by which we don't need cordova to accept our changes.. I mean a replica copy of their code with our changes in my github repo which can be cloned would also serve the purpose.

So as you say I would be reviewing the changes that need to be done on the sugar side and so that they could be finalized and pushed and rest can be cloned from my github repo and tested - then I don't see cordova interference anyway :-)

Once this works we may keep the meeting and acceptance stuff for later too. So would try to finalize the sugar stuff asap.

What's the exact date for feature freeze ? December 1, 2014 ? and I need to get my pull request into sugar code by that time right ?

I understand they are not really interested in add code to a minor platform like Sugar
(if you compare with Android or iOs). Include code is easy but later you need maintain it.
I remember I asked you replace implementation details in the plugins,
like the use of pygame in the camera by gstreamer. We need fix that and other issues.
We can keep cordova-sugar in our repository until is ready to push upstream,
and provide a mechanism to install it when needed.

I think it is very essential to arrange a meeting between the two communities because without that it is difficult to make the cordova people realize the importance of the project and we would face a lot of resistance from their side regarding the acceptance of our pull requests in the cordova repo. We would need to publish this repo of ours :https://github.com/puneetgkaur/cordova-sugar (which is completedly independent of any sugar code) under the apache license just like we have for other platforms : https://github.com/apache/cordova-androidhttps://github.com/apache/cordova-ioshttps://github.com/apache/cordova-windows. I hope we have no problem with that.

Once its made clear to the cordova community regarding the people from whom they should be expecting the pull request then it would be easier for them to issue a green signal for the same. At the present I have observed that the cordova community is not so open regarding committing our changes, once they are made aware of the fact that they would be receiving the pull request for this very purpose, then I think they would be more acceptable to our changes and more welcoming in their responses than now.

I have written a few mails in the community and can also approach the phonegap committers(same as cordova) through the internal adobe network but its difficult to make them realize our work unless we arrange a meeting between the two ends.

I would request Lionel, Walter, Gonzalo and Martin and all other sugar developers who have an important role to play here to join in the meeting with the main developers on the phonegap side. I have identified a few important people in the cordova community namely steven gill , shazron and lorin beer - who are currently working dedicatedly on the phonegap and cordova projects. Would be great if we can arrange a meeting with them.

Regards,
Puneet

Maybe run calculations in a background thread?

+1. In theory we should not execute long blocking tasks in the GUI thread.

This one is a big feature.  You would need to start a big design discussion and stuff.

Yes, is a long feature and is unlikely will be finished before our feature freeze.

There are a start in the project Sugar listens 
More informaton here http://rodrigo-parra.tumblr.com/
Maybe you can work with Rodrigo Parra to help him to include the work 
in sugar master.

Getting started with tickets

Hello all,


I needed some help getting started with tickets #2136 or #4671.
#2136 is Calculate doesn't respond to stop during a long calculation
#4671 is an enhancement to add voice recognition.

How do you think I could go about these tickets?

Thanks,
Aman Srivastava

Re: new to sugar labs (Gonzalo Odiard)


Tank Operation activity [1] is a Sugar Web TuxMath clone.
At least it was my intention :-)

To look for sugar bugs check at bugs.sugarlabs.org

About physics, I would like to have a version of Physics activity [1]
implemented as a HTML/JS with one of the multiple physics game engines
availables on javascript.
Or you can create some game based on math or physics.
I am not a big fan, but TusMath [3] is very popular in the deployments,
and we always have problems with that, because is a binary,
and honestly could be better implemented

Please, subscribe to our mailing list [4], and we can continue the
communication there.

Hi,

Please tell me more about the deployment of sugar in Goa.
And I have setup the development environment ( pulled source files, built and run sugar). Please let me know what is to be done next :)

Thanks,

sugar-runner not working in f21 Workstation

I tested sugar-runner in f21 workstation beta TC2 (bare metal install 
updated) and I get a grey screen but no  sugar...
sugar-runner locks up fedora and seems to require a power cycle to escape
sugar-desktop starts and works fine from gdm login with sugar selected.

in xfce and lxde sugar runner works correctly

Possibly due to this bug?
