August The meeting will take place at the [http://www.intevation.de/ Intevation] offices in Osnabrück. For organization and to participate please check the [https://sprints.kde.org/sprint/104 Sprint Page] == Proposed Topics == * Qt5 --> Andy? * KDE frameworks --> Patrick? * Packaging / NSIS / MSI how to integrate in emerge even better. * "Autoupdates" for Standalone software like Kontact / Amarok / Calligra * Sandboxing * Oxygen or a more Native look as the default? * Tests / Unittests (Maybe more of a "to hack" on topic, but It would be cool if we could make better use of them) * Keyword system to tagging unstable software: :Gentoos emerge uses "accept keywords" to categorize versions of software into either stable, testing or experimental. :I'd like to propose a similar (but simpler) system for emerge on Windows: Add a "keyword" parameter to installation targets. If empty / not existant (current situation) that means "safe" (stable). Potentially unstable packages could then be tagged as potentially dangerous by giving them a certain keyword (like "~"). :An emerge configuration option would be needed that defines the keywords that the user accepts (per default, that'd be empty - accepting all current targets but not those marked as unstable). :Developers that want to run bleeding edge software could just add the "~" keyword to the list of accepted ones and instantly move up to all the latest releases (which also makes sense as they might depend on each other). :This simple approach would not have any regressions or require a large initial "tagging" effort but would allow developers in the future to mark potentially dangerous targets leading to a nicer experience for e.g. app developers that "just want a stable base to start from". === Things to hack on === * Update mingw-w64 to gcc 4.7 as 4.6 is required by Qt 5 * Patch Mysql to build with mingw * Removing Version numbers from filenames in emerge * Let's build the frameworks? * Website Template used on this page: Template:Moved To Community (view source) Return to Projects/KDE on Windows/Meetings/Osnabrück Meeting Summer 2012.
