Re: [Evolution-hackers] Evolution progress for 2.22

2007-12-18 Thread Srinivasa Ragavan
Hello Guys,

With 2.21.4 out, this is the update/status-check on where we are wrt
2.22 release schedule.

 I'm hoping to get the following things for 2.22 cycle.
 
 * Exchange Smartcard support (Mostly done and GAL is still pending)
 * Non-Intrusive error reporting (Prototype patch is there, not started
 yet)
The framework as well the mail-thread integration is already committed.
It features a log viewer as well. Read my blog [1] for more detailed
description of the feature.

 * Matt's new-look composer
Matt has already posted his mail [2] about the status on the composer
branch (I haven't compiled that yet though). We should be looking at the
Phase 1  2 for 2.22, keeping Jan 28 as the target for UI Freeze.

New additions:

* Evolution crash detection also made it to 2.21.4. If Evolution crashes
and on next start, it gives a option to hide preview panes to over come
the issues of recurring-crash-on-mail-read. This can be disabled through
the dialog itself.

* Milan has picked Sankar's work on Message tagging (Custom labels) and
made it for 2.21.4. Some more patches for this are yet to hit the trunk.
But the base feature works though.

Apart from these, I don't think we would be adding any new features for
2.21.x and we would be focusing more on to bug fixing, stability and
performance issues only.

MAPI is something that is going on in parallel. It should be available
as a external rpm/plugin for 2.22/2.12 users.

-Srini.

cool, looks like http://live.gnome.org/RoadMap is more or less uptodate.

to keep up a tradition, i'd like to list those issues i've been always
proposing for the last cycles:
  * 213072 - summary mismatch (74 duplicates, 6 in the last 30
days)
  * 352287 - share weather locations with libgweather as far as
possible
  * 233035 - support central deployment
  * make evo realize that it crashed when getting restarted
(mbarnes)
  * 347471 looks like already work in progress.
  * 335923 - lockdown support (i hope that federico is working on
this?)

But not anymore. Anyways, I would make sure that you won't remind me
anymore :)

If not a fix, I promise a work-around atleast.
   * 352287 - share weather locations with libgweather as far as

I don't think, I would target this in 2.21.x, unless I get a patch from
some one.

   * 233035 - support central deployment
UAM should help to get this happen. 
Sankar, isn't it?
   * make evo realize that it crashed when getting restarted
 (mbarnes)
Hmm, should be a overnight task IMO. But I think the requirements need
to be frozen first. If you/mbarnes could blow it up on the wiki, it
would be great.

   * 347471 looks like already work in progress.
   * 335923 - lockdown support (i hope that federico is working on

Blame me, I couldn't spend time with Federico at Guadec. If I would
have, I might have answered you with more concrete things.

Anyways, thanks for bringing it (again) :)

The mechanism is simple: create a file on startup, delete it on
shutdown.  If the file is there on startup, it means we didn't shutdown
cleanly last time and the various components can be notified of that.

What components do with that information needs to be ironed out.  The
primary use case I had in mind was disabling email preview, or at least
changing the selection to something safe like On This Computer.  But
the new --disable-preview option put this feature on the backburner.

I'm not sure what, if any, action would be appropriate for Calendar or
other components.  Probably need to look at what kinds of things tend to
cause crashes in those components and how best to avoid them at startup.

With the Composer work I'm trying to get done, I'm not sure I'll have
time to see this through before GNOME 2.22.  If someone else wants to
take it up I'd be happy to assist.

Right. Got it. I think I will be able to do it at free time this week.
The ---disable-preview was written not just for mails, but also for
contacts, tasks. So this should be pretty simple to get it in.

I want to say a big thanks to everyone as well, especially you Srini!
Evolution has really stabilized in a big way over the last 6 months or
so, and I certainly appreciate it: Evolution is the killer app that
allows me to have never booted from my Windows partition at work since I
shrunk it and installed Ubuntu over a year ago.

Hip hip hooray!


I do hope folks are still going to look at bugs: I have some pretty
significant ones that don't seem to be getting much love, that I'd
really appreciate some traction on:

http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=436615
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=436619
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=442098
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=478151
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=478090

Most of these are trivially reproducible (by me anyway), and I have
builds at or near the head of the SVN trunk, with full debugging enabled
and saving logs and cores.  I'm well-versed in patch files, GDB, etc.,
and I'm happy to assist in debugging, although I'll need some direction:
I don't have the time or energy to learn enough about Evo code to debug
these myself.

and one user interface one that someone can probably do very quickly:

http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=478840

And then there's this one, which seems crazy to me that this has never
been reported; I wonder if there's more to it than I think:

I see that this is already fixed in a different bug. I hope that we would fix 
the rest in 
some form (may be in MAPI) pretty soon.
