[:BuildingCommunity/TeamReporting:Back to the Team Reporting page...]

Welcome to the MobileAndEmbedded reporting page. Every month this page reveals a snapshot of the work that has been going on in the Ubuntu Mobile and Embedded Community. If you have have been working hard on the project and want to let others know what you have been up to, try to summarize it here. Community contributions are actively encouraged. A few guidelines for how to write good points are:

  • Keep it simple and short - single sentences are best. Smile :)

  • Try to summarise your work and not be over-detailed - we don't need to know specifics, just a summary of the kind
  • Where possible, include relevant links.

You should get all your reporting included here by the 22nd of every month.

The Report

Ubuntu Mobile [ MootBot Logs]

Week 21 -27 Feb

  • Reviewing / sponsoring
  • Some more work on pimlico; dates is now in sync between upstream, Debian, and Ubuntu; tasks is ready to be synced, but this requires a seed change, so I prefer waiting until
    • tomorrow's image build
  • Some discussion on versioning of kernel uploads to the ppa (versus in hardy); we should probably pin the ppa higher than hardy for all practical purposes in the end
  • Started some quickstart documentation on gettext usage
  • Started research on langpacks, documented how much they would gain us ..10 MB says Arne, andwhat we would need to do (we would have to do a lot); this also includes documenting how
    • to output langpacks after the various freezes which I alre ady researched with misc people but need to summarize into executive steps
  • Adapt OpenOffice to be able export documents to PDF from command line. The reason behind this is to allow evince to view MS Office documents. During this

    • process some specific changes needed to be done applying partially a patch from the official maintainer so it could build correctly on PPA.
  • Created a small launcher application called "treb" (short for trebuchet) that is basically an openfile-type dialog that will let the user select a file and will automatically filter
    • it using OpenOffice and pass it to be read by Evince.

  • I was able to patch the Firefox 3.0 beta2 chinese language pack and made it work with Midbrowser.
  • Added all the internationalization support back into moblin-applets and enabled mobile-basic-flash to display multi-language icon texts. Essentially I regenerated a new
    • po/ and po/POTFILES.skip with all the files that have and don’t have translatable strings. About 50% of them haven’t changed since th gnome-control-center fork, but that leaves quite a few with either fuzzy or no translations in all the languages available.
  • Lots of driver and kernel bug fixes
