Overview

Like Wolfgang said in http://n2.nabble.com/Weekly-Engineering-News-41-2008-td1336450.html , Openmoko assembled a team to focus on improving the user experience. The focus and coverage of this group is:

  • We improve the current stack instead of creating new features.
  • Prefer stuffs which could be brought over to gta03 instead of gta02/om2008 specific.
  • Won't work on om2007 stack. Won't do hardware.
  • May cooperate with Paroli, FSO or system team but we're not them.
  • Will work on Qtopia but with lower priority.

ToDO

Here is the current draft and it will be updated frequently.

  • call quality
    • echo (in testing #1267)
    • volume (alsa-state?)
  • Reduce boot time
  • Optimize the touch screen driver on freerunner for finger usage.
  • A generic python loader to enhance the start up time of python scripts.
  • qtopia
    • bugfix
    • program startup speed
    • response time
  • network
    • scripts: resolv.conf, etc.

Evaluating

  • suspend/resume
    • take a screenshot before suspend. display it on screen first thing on resume.
    • do not suspend when usb connected, qtopia indexing, etc.
  • qtopia
    • change the button order of "end call" or "ans call"
    • put speaker button on the dialer app
  • peripherals
  • devices (command line improvement first)
    • GPRS
    • bluetooth
    • wifi userspace
  • misc
    • opkg: faster algorithm
Personal tools

Like Wolfgang said in http://n2.nabble.com/Weekly-Engineering-News-41-2008-td1336450.html , Openmoko assembled a team to focus on improving the user experience. Here is our todo list, feel free to put your vote and add main issues that you think is critical.

as a proposal:

Priority: measured from 1 (highest) ... 5 (nice to have); put your priority into the comma separated list and we calculate later the average;

Votes: just edit and add +1 if you wote YES|NO in the corresponding column;
