Re: Where is the tangoGPS community? (was: TangoGPS font size for speed indicator)

2010-04-10 Thread Joshua Judson Rosen
Apologies for reviving a 3-month-old thread I'm not actually
interested in the `Marcus vs. Risto' fight; but this thread did
raise some questions for me about how I should go about being
part of to the tangoGPS developer community, myself--mainly,
*is* there actually a developer community, and where is it?

More specifically...:

 Ah, allrighty! It is just that tangoGPS has a community of more than
 100.000 users, of more than 25 distributions, of people packaging it,
 people twittering about it, people blogging about it, people discussing
 it in forums...
 
 The tangoGPS friendservice has been used almost half a million times and
 the messaging is frequently used too.
 
 There has been an article on Linux.com about tangoGPS and another one in
 the Linux Magazine.
 
 I'd say the tangoGPS community is bigger than the openmoko community :-P

Those are all measures only of an end-user community.

Having a large, thriving end-user community *is* excellent, and also
important--so I'd like to both congratulate you and thank you for that
accomplishment!

However: I'd like to know where the *developer* community is for tangoGPS--
and please don't take that the wrong way, there's nothing backhanded
in that remark; really, I'm interested in developing tangoGPS, and
communicating and collaborating with other likeminded people.
I have a set of patches, already--what should I do with them?
Where should I post them for posterity? Where is the mailing list?
Is there an IRC channel? Is there a wiki? Is there a bug-tracker?
Is there a public version-control archive? Where are all of these things?

No. Just email your patches to Marcus Bauer. Expect no reply nor use of patches.

But, you don't have the right to complain. You have the right to fork, though.

grtz,
