RE: interesting white paper from MS shared on the dev-de list

 Joerg Schmidt shared an interesting whitepaper from Microsoft White
 Paper: OpenOffice / LibreOffice Evaluation Criteria on the dev-de list.
 
 I found it interesting and thought it can be of interest for others here
 as well.

 http://www.whymicrosoft.com/see-why/openoffice-evaluation-criteria/
 

I have read the white paper (why it is called white is another story) and I
think that it is the usual market nonsense. Microsoft is loosing money and
they want to find a way to get their former customers back. An interesting
comment included in this white paper is the following one:

Microsoft Office 2010 boosts Indian IT firm's productivity by 30 percent.

I just wonder how the prodictivity of an IT company is increased by using 
a word processor or a lousy database?

(I did not see any reason this discussion should go private, so I
moved it to public.)

As far as I read, the GIMP team had never opt-in distributing
adwares/malwares.  They did agree to share SF.net's ad profit, but not
bundling adwares/malwares with their installers.  And SF.net did
hijacked GIMP for Windows without authors' consent.

Goodbye, SourceForge.

Anatomy of SourceForge/GIMP controversy (from GIMP team)

What happened to Sourceforge? (from VLC developer)
https://blog.l0cal.com/2015/06/02/what-happened-to-sourceforge/

I looked into which projects SF.net hijacked, and surprisingly found
Apache HTTPD, Apache Derby, Apache Directory Studio, Firefox, MySQL,
PostgreSQL, Nmap, The R-project.

Apache HTTPD, Apache Derby, Apache Directory Studio, Nmap, R
http://sourceforge.net/u/sf-editor3/profile/

GIMP, VLC
http://sourceforge.net/u/sf-editor1/profile/

Firefox, MySQL, PostgreSQL

So who's next?  Apache OpenOffice?  When will there be a new
malware/adware-enabled Apache OpenOfffice installer?  I suppose we
should move from SF.net to a trustworthy mirror solution.

 Hi Roberto,
 See these:


 http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2015/05/sourceforge-grabs-gimp-for-windows-account-wraps-installer-in-bundle-pushing-adware/

 
 It's not up-to-date, GIMP (and every other mirror project) has been
 unbundled few days ago. Just as I stated above. Also if you follow dev@ you
 know that by the facts we remove unwanted or misleading ads in hours.
 
 
 

 http://danluu.com/slashdot-sourceforge/

 
 It seems like this is not up-to-date too, as far as I know Slashdot editor
 after the week-end catched up with everything, included this. Of course
 there is as usual space for conspirancy theories, but you understand I
 can't help with that.
 
 Unless you have something else I think I've covered everything, if you or
 someone else has more questions I'll be happy to answer.

 I don’t think that seeing this as a fuss and deprecating it as
 unimportant or trivial (in some way) either because it’s a storm in a
 teacup or old news or misinterpreted news is useful to us or to SF.

 Having said that, recently SourceForge tested the program on few
 SourceForge projects that were abandoned by the original developers and
 kept updated by our editorial team or bots. Given the community reactions
 the company decided to quit such tests for good.

 A company statement clarifying it further will be made public soon,
 beyond the fuss nothing has really changed as of now.

 I fully expect that somehow this will be used as ammunition
 against AOO, due to our reliance on them as a major download
 partner.



 It sounds like they are recycling old news or something.  The whole
 opt-in advertising brouhaha occurred a few years ago,   We did not opt-in,
 so it was not an issue for us.  Sounds like GIMP first opted-in, then
 opted-out, but it is not clear whether as a community they spoke with one
 voice and whether it was clear to SF whose voice represented the
 community.   Apache projects have a governance model and a decision making
 process that makes that kind of misunderstanding less likely.

Apache@ OSCON 2015 - Booth Goodies

2015-06-05 Thread Dennis E. Hamilton
OSCON 2015 is near upon us.

I am offering to do booth duty again this year.  I had a great time and am 
happy to do it again.

I have one request.

Can we have bigger Apache OpenOffice buttons?  The little ones are nice, but I 
find they are difficult to put one.

The design need not change, but it would be good to have bigger ones.  Is that 
easy to accomplish?

Hi Kay,

What kind of project giveaways are you thinking of? Let me know - I'll be more 
than happy to accommodate this if I can.  Please be sure to contact brand 
management if approval is needed!!!

As Ross mentioned, I'm the primary booth staffer, but there are always a 
handful of volunteers that help at the booth (staffing during breaks/lunch and 
help with the setup/teardown).  Shane will be my sidekick at the booth this 
year.  If you or others from your project will be attending OSCON and would 
like to be present at the booth at a specific time to talk to the attendees, 
just let me know.  We could always send out a broadcast via social media about 
stop by the ASF's booth at XXX to speak with the reps from Project XXX.  That 
goes for the other projects as well!!

It's always great to have someone from the community at the booth to answer 
technical questions!!

Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Have a great day - speak soon,

~Melissa

Usually we just have Melissa staff it and answer general questions about

In theory we could be more organized giving specific projects a time slot

Re: Looking for help for clipboard in Math

2015-06-05 Thread Michael Stahl
On 05.06.2015 01:44, Regina Henschel wrote:
 Hi all,
 
 I struggle with the clipboard. My goal is to import MathML in module 
 Math from clipboard, similar as it is imported from file. But I'm stuck. 
 Therefore some questions:
 
 (1)
 Has someone tried such already and found, that it is not possible?

i have no idea about clipboards or Math, but i'm armed with git grep :)

 (2)
 The comments in file exchange.cxx refer to a document CLIP.SDW. Has 
 someone this document and can provide it?

ehhh i'd not hold my breath on that one :)

 (3)
 I have added a .uno command which is executed in 
 SmViewShell::Execute(SfxRequest rReq)
 
 My current attempt looks like this:
 
 TransferableDataHelper aDataHelper( 
 TransferableDataHelper::CreateFromSystemClipboard(GetEditWindow()) );
 SotFormatStringId nId;
 DataFlavorExVector* pFormats;
 pFormats = aDataHelper.GetDataFlavorExVector();
 DataFlavorExVector::iterator aIter( 
 ((DataFlavorExVector)*pFormats).begin() ),
  aEnd( 
 ((DataFlavorExVector)*pFormats).end() );
 while ( aIter != aEnd )
 {
  nId = (*aIter).mnSotId;
 ...
  aIter++;
 }
 
 I get some nId-values and for some of them I can get a stream and can 
 look at the content. But the clipboard content, which is generated by 
 the Windows program Math Input Control (mip.exe) is not noticed. But I 
 see that the clipboard has a content MathML and a content MathML 
 Presentation using the clipboard viewer Free Clipboard Viewer 2.0. 
 Why do I get no nId for it?

include/sot/exchange.hxx:

struct DataFlavorEx : public ::com::sun::star::datatransfer::DataFlavor

this has a SotClipboardFormatId mnSotId and a string MimeType - how
does the system specifc clipboard data get translated to that...

 (4)
 The numbers I get in nId are those from the list in exchange.cxx, and 
 for application/mathml+xml, which is not listed there, I get the next 
 one following the list. But how can I get the MimeType or the 
 HumanPresentableName for the detected nId? My following try does not 
 work, the strings are empty in all cases:
 
 ::com::sun::star::datatransfer::DataFlavor aFlavor;
 SotExchange::GetFormatDataFlavor( nId, aFlavor ) )
 String sHumanPresentableName(aFlavor.HumanPresentableName);
 String sMimeType(aFlavor.MimeType);

include/sot/formats.hxx: enum class SotClipboardFormatId

there is no MathML in there, but various STARMATH_* ones.

// the point at which we start allocating runtime format IDs
USER_END  = STARWRITERGLOB_8_TEMPLATE

so what you probably have as ID is user-defined, which means we can't
do anything with it really.

it looks like there needs to be some mapping from the OS-specific
clipboard to these office-internal IDs - if there's no ID for MathML it
can't be mapped.

there is a big array in sot/source/base/exchange.cxx, you probably need
to add an entry for MathML there.

the array is ordered and indexed by the SotClipboardFormatId.

/* 48 SotClipboardFormatId::STARMATH_50*/{
application/x-openoffice-starmath-50;windows_formatname=\StarMath
5.0\, StarMath 5.0, cppu::UnoTypeSequencesal_Int8::get() },

that's the mime-type and human-readable name.

i was wondering how this would work on Windows, given that the Win32
clipboard presumably does not use mime-types; apparently the
;windows_formatname=\...\ appendix to the mime-type here covers that.

 (5)
 I try to use SmViewShell::InsertFrom(SfxMedium rMedium). It seems to 
 work, but when the process arrives at SmXMLImport::endDocument(void), 
 the node tree is empty.  Any tips, what I might have missed?

how do you prepare the SfxMedium?  i'm not sure if it requires an actual
file, or if it can read from an input stream (XInputStream); it probably
can't read from a Sequencesal_Int8 buffer directly...

there is a SfxMedium::setStreamToLoadFrom() which looks promising.

you can create an input stream from the buffer via SvMemoryStream and
then wrap that in utl::OInputStreamWrapper.

 adwares/malwares.  They did agree to share SF.net's ad profit, but not
 bundling adwares/malwares with their installers.  And SF.net did
 hijacked GIMP for Windows without authors' consent.
 
 Goodbye, SourceForge.

 Anatomy of SourceForge/GIMP controversy (from GIMP team)

 What happened to Sourceforge? (from VLC developer)
 https://blog.l0cal.com/2015/06/02/what-happened-to-sourceforge/
 
 I looked into which projects SF.net hijacked, and surprisingly found
 Apache HTTPD, Apache Derby, Apache Directory Studio, Firefox, MySQL,
 PostgreSQL, Nmap, The R-project.
 
 Apache HTTPD, Apache Derby, Apache Directory Studio, Nmap, R

 GIMP, VLC
 http://sourceforge.net/u/sf-editor1/profile/
 
 Firefox, MySQL, PostgreSQL
 http://sourceforge.net/u/sf-editor/profile/
 
 So who's next?  Apache OpenOffice?  When will there be a new
 malware/adware-enabled Apache OpenOfffice installer?  I suppose we
 should move from SF.net to a trustworthy mirror solution.

  Hi Roberto,
  See these:
 
 
  http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2015/05/sourceforge-grabs-gimp-for-windows-account-wraps-installer-in-bundle-pushing-adware/
 
  
  It's not up-to-date, GIMP (and every other mirror project) has been
  unbundled few days ago. Just as I stated above. Also if you follow dev@ you
  know that by the facts we remove unwanted or misleading ads in hours.

  It seems like this is not up-to-date too, as far as I know Slashdot editor
  after the week-end catched up with everything, included this. Of course
  there is as usual space for conspirancy theories, but you understand I
  can't help with that.
  
  Unless you have something else I think I've covered everything, if you or
  someone else has more questions I'll be happy to answer.

  I don’t think that seeing this as a fuss and deprecating it as
  unimportant or trivial (in some way) either because it’s a storm in a
  teacup or old news or misinterpreted news is useful to us or to SF.

  Louis,
 
   I'm pretty sure I've read most of it, not sure to which one you're
  referring to.
   But yes, I'm pretty sure that was done with only (very) few SourceForge
  abandoned project for just some days.

  Roberto,
 
 
  Surely you have also gone over the US press and now also reddit
  discussions? In which it seems as if SF is not always waiting for
  abandonment?

  Just a quick clarification on the topic. Not long time ago Simon
  himself wrote an article saying good things of the DevShare program, see
  http://www.infoworld.com/article/2610419/open-source-software/retro-repo-sourceforge-learns-new-tricks.html
 
  Having said that, recently SourceForge tested the program on few
  SourceForge projects that were abandoned by the original developers and
  kept updated by our editorial team or bots. Given the community reactions
  the company decided to quit such tests for good.
 
  A company statement clarifying it further will be made public soon,
  beyond the fuss nothing has really changed as of now.

  Just a FYI:

  I fully expect that somehow this will be used as ammunition
  against AOO, due to our reliance on them as a major download
  partner.
 
 
 
  It sounds like they are recycling old news or something.  The whole
  opt-in advertising brouhaha occurred a few years ago,   We did not opt-in,
  so it was not an issue for us.  Sounds like GIMP first opted-in, then
  opted-out, but it is not clear whether as a community they spoke with one
  voice and whether it was clear to SF whose voice represented the
  community.   Apache projects have a governance model and a decision making
  process that makes that kind of misunderstanding less likely.
