So, how are we going to celebrate it? As 0.84.1 is going to be on, we
could do a bug fix sprint during a weekend.

Should we get the marketing team to prepare a press release?

Did we announce it on Freshmeat?  Slashdot?  LWN?  OLPCNews?

The marketing team is already working on it. 2 things I think are left. 
Good release notes and a well enough working Soas for people to try out. 
Both will be available in the next days - at least that is the plan.

Re: debxo ohmd testers wanted

2009-03-05 Thread Holger Levsen
Hi James,

On Mittwoch, 4. März 2009, James Cameron wrote:
 I've packaged ohmd for debxo, and done some minimal testing.  I'd like
 other debxo users to have a go at it.

Cool. 

 Packaging improvements welcome.  I'm yet to learn some tricks.

Would you like to (co-)maintain the package in Debian? I'd be happy to sponsor 
uploads and/or co-maintain.

Comments on files I looked at so far:

control: 
Standards-Version should be upgraded to 3.8.0 (after checking)
long description is too short (you wrote more in the mail I'm replying 
to :)
misses homepage: and vcs-pseudoheaders

copyright:
misses copyright owner
misses download location
misses short GPL blurbs
(see 
http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2006/03/msg00023.html)
mentions GPL but links to GPL-2

README.Debian
unneeded with current content (see above)

changelog:
version number should rather be something like 0.1.1.git20090304-1
we should file an ITP bug, so we can close it here ;) (rather to tell 
others about out intentions to put this software into Debian)

postrm+postinst:
unconditionally ending with exit 0 looks wrong
are those files needed at all? I mean, shouldnt debhelper/cdbs create 
them,
if they contain autogenerated code only?

rules:
simple-patchsys.mk is unused, and if, I'd prefer patchsys-quilt.mk


Do you have a vcs where you maintain this?


regards,
Holger

Re: [Sugar-devel] [IAEP] [ANNOUNCE] Sucrose 0.84.0 Final Release

2009-03-05 Thread Sean DALY
The media launch and multi-language press release has been scheduled
for March 16th, when release notes, the PR phone number, and the final
press mailing lists including the education publications will be
ready.

I will have Tuesday's marketing meeting topics  deliverables mail
ready sometime today, meanwhile:
http://sugarlabs.org/go/MarketingTeam/Meetings/03-03-2009

Please, don't spread the word without coordinating with the marketing
team, we don't even have the PR phone numbers set up and our impact
will be maximized if we can stay coordinated.

Thanks

[Server-devel] Apache proxy CRCsync

2009-03-05 Thread Martin Langhoff
This is a brief email to mention that I've setup a few skeleton things
related to the crcsync + apache proxy push.

There is an unofficial (but apparently well maintained and popular)
git mirror of the apache sources at http://jukka.zitting.name/git/ -
so I cloned the httpd.git repo, and used it as the base for a new
project repository at repo.or.cz.

So we now have

 - GIT repository http://repo.or.cz/w/httpd-crcsyncproxy.git

 - Project 'homepage': http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Apache_Proxy_CRCsync
- I admit it's horrid, if anyone wants to expand/improve...

cheers,

[Server-devel] How to hack/test latest moodle code...

2009-03-05 Thread Martin Langhoff
Hi Rangan,

you'll see I'm copying the server-devel list -- other people are
following similar steps, so let's have technical conversations via
this list, otherwise, my inbox explodes hopelessly :-)

On Fri, Mar 6, 2009 at 12:13 PM, Rangan Srikhanta ran...@laptop.org.au wrote:
 Thank you for your previous email outlining the new patch. We are still on
 0.5.1 (maybe we need to be on 0.5.2) but did the following commands in the
 school server but to no avail.

With 0.5.1 you'll see some problems with ejabberd. I'd recommend 0.5.2-dev02...

 git-clone git://dev.laptop.org/users/martin/moodle.git work

 cp unalias

 cp –rf ./work/* /moodle/

I'll give you these alternative instructions - all the steps below as
the root user...

1 - to be sure, perform the full install of the XS (in your notes it's
not clear whether you had configured domains, ejabberd, etc)

2 - start postgres - `chkconfig --add pgsql-xs ; /etc/init.d/pgsql-xs start `

3 - install git `yum install git`

4 - To develop and play with moodle,

cd /var/www/moodle
mv web web-from-rpm
git clone git-clone git://dev.laptop.org/users/martin/moodle.git web
cp web-from-rpm/config.php web/config.php

now you should have a good moodle install. Also recommeded:

 - add these lines to config.php

$CFG-debug=6143;
$CFG-debugdisplay=0;

  - keep a console where you tail the error logs - I setup an xterm
below my editor and browser windows, where I use the following
command:

   tail -f /var/log/httpd/error_log  | perl -pe 's/\\n/\n/g'

 In the XO I upgraded the Browse version to the latest and it worked!

Right... you've tried to install the Browse.xo from git, which is a
bit of trouble because it's not fully compatible.

 Sudo yum install git
 git-clone git://dev.laptop.org/web-activity clone
 cp –rf ./clone/* /Activities/Browse.activity/

If you want to do it this way, I'd say, as user olpc, do

1 - sudo yum install git
2 - cd /home/olpc/Activities
3 - mv Browse.activity Browse.activity-original
4 - git-clone git://dev.laptop.org/web-activity Browse.activity
5 - cd Browse.activity
6 - git checkout -b sucrose-0.82 origin/sucrose-0.82
7 - from the home view, start Browse.

- steps 5 and 6 are because the 'master' development branch of Browse
doesn'twork on the 8.2.x OS. I know - awkward.

Anyway, my recommendatino is thatr you _don't_ do this either :-). On
the laptop side, just install the nicely packaged Browse-100.xo  from

http://shell.sugarlabs.org/~erikos/bundles/Browse-100.xo

 I am trying to get the seamless login working as I think that will be
 pivotal to our deployments in the next two weeks. Thank you for your
 patience.

Note that this is a development version! If it breaks... and it
probably will... you get to keep both parts.

cheers,

Cool. Email via server-devel is best (do subscribe to the list at
http://lists.laptop.org/listinfo/server-devel )

 I have followed your instructions and noted the disappearance of the user
 list page which appears just before moodle (which is a great thing), but am
 now stuck on the moodle login page where it requests a username/password.
 How do I start populating users or at least login to moodle (previously I
 selected 'help me login')?

Ok, there's a missing step - you have to _register_ the laptop to the
XS. Steps to go through (and things you can check to see it's worked)
here: http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Schoolserver_Testing#Laptop_Registration

You'll have to _restart the laptop_ after this. After the restart,
going to the XS with the new Browse.xo will automagically log you in.

 Two Linksys WRT54GLs configured in WAP mode
 One D-Link 5-port Switch
 School Server - Compaq CQ2000AN with 1Gb Ram, 160GB SATA disk drive, Intel
 Atom processor plus an Ethernet-to-USB adaptor (i.e. eth1), so this means
 eth0 goes straight-through to the internet, eth1 to the switch.
 180+ XO laptops

Nice setup :-)

 Areaswe are looking to focus our testing:
 1. Registering all XOs to School Server
 2. Creating Lesson Plans and registering students to the course

Step 2 will require moodle expertise. better group mgmt tools are in
the plan, but not there yet.

Actually, search the wiki and the list for my notes on the plan for
handling roles in moodle (hint: the first XO to register and visit
moodle gets 'course creator' role).

 3. Accessing flash based content in moodle and seeing the performance of the
 objects
 4. Seeing the stability of the neighbourhood and friends view to allow group
 chats and games to occur

Cool.

 At this stage we are attempting to strike the balance between the
 practicalities of teachers creating and maintaining courses and helping them
 achieve their curriculum outcomes.

Good stuff. I am fairly busy with things the next few weeks -- I'm
confident you'll find your way with moodle :-)

cheers,


martin
