The current View Slides sends the whole slideshow in a Zip file over the network. These slideshow Zip files can be 20-60 meg and I find that sharing files of that size just doesn't work. Worse, if the original file is still being shared it is impossible to resume a document you have received by sharing without starting the whole download over again. So I think my new idea makes a lot more sense, and I'm thinking I can use code in Chat as an example to work from.

I have moved both my repositories to gitorious:



However, last night and this morning when I tried to do a git push to the new repository I got this:

[...@localhost ~]$ cd olpc/readetexts/mainline/
[...@localhost mainline]$ ls
activity  NEWS                   ReadEtextsActivity.pyc  setup.py
locale    po                     readtoolbar.py
MANIFEST  ReadEtextsActivity.py  readtoolbar.pyc
[...@localhost mainline]$ git push origin master
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

This is on a machine where I have never done a git push before (I did my development work on a different box). I created my SSH key and published the public key in the account named jdsimmons, along with the other public key from the other box. I just used ssh-keygen with no parameters to generate the key, and gave it my passphrase when prompted. I think this is all I did for the other box, but I can't remember. So I don't know if this is my problem or something to do with git.sugarlabs.org. If you or someone else can steer me in the right direction I'd appreciate it.

I think sending one page at a time, and having the initiator control the presentation is a great idea. Otherwise, you might as well just send the document to everyone and have them open it up on their own :)

Also, are you planning to move your repositories over to git.sugarlabs.org <http://git.sugarlabs.org>? Most of the other activities are doing that now, and we have set up a Sugar Labs ActivityTeam (http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/ActivityTeam) to coordinate the process.
