Status: UNCONFIRMED -> RESOLVED
I don’t know how come it is so hard to make time to write something in this blog. Many times have I been thinking how I’m going to write about some events, but it has not happened. Maybe one reason is that I don’t want to write anything hasty. I really enjoy writing when I have the time to write and produce text of some quality at least. Well, maybe I work the same with almost all the things I do. I don’t like to crash through anything
I’ve been very busy with my ordinary (yeah, right..) life so I’m happy I’ve managed to work and sort out the most important stuff. Unfortunately blogging is not very high on the priority list. I have some ideas how I could improve my blogging rate in the future, but let’s see what comes out of it. Anyway there has been quite a lot of events and stuff that I’m going to cover in this post.
I now have packages in my PPA ready for testing and I’m working with asac to get them included to Ubuntu repositories. If all goes well, we just might see the fruits of my work in the next release of Ubuntu. Exciting isn’t it?
This was for me the last week of Kesäkoodi. There’s still a closing report on it’s way and Openmind conference is coming so I’m not going anywhere. I will push updates through this blog on the Ubuntu inclusion and other important stuff.
I didn’t get as much done as I wanted to, but I’m pretty pleased anyway. Most of my time went to polishing and testing on Intrepid (new library versions, new trouble) and everything should be working now.
I haven’t had a lot of time to spent with NM lately. I’ve done the packaging that was scheduled for next week so there’s time to really push NM integration.
I will also start poking the ubuntu people. Hopefully they will poke me back
I missed one week. I’m sorry for that
So what have I been up to..
Need to say more?
Well maybe a little. My changes are currently only available from mbca branches of NetworkManager and network-manager-applet. I’m currently discussing with Dan Williams about merging my changes to trunks.
My NM branch doesn’t have anything vital for the assistant, but I’ve added some functionality in order to have Nokia mobile phones recognised by NM. That functionality really needs to be added to HAL some later time.
Some Bad News
I have to drop support for Bluetooth and arbitrary serial devices. Sorry, no can do.
My assistant has the support, but NetworkManager does not. This is propably going to change some day, but for now we just have to seddle for devices discovered by HAL: USB, PCMCIA, ExpressCard and built-in devices.
Your Country Needs YOU!
I got the database repository finally up and running and there’s even one contributor already. Needles to say that’s not enough. Take a look at the instructions and participate! Make the wold a better place
here’s a nice picture to proof:
I’ll provide fresh packages for Ubuntu Intrepid and Hardy through my PPA.
