Overview

The Stable Hybrid Release (SHR) is intended to be a combination of the FSO, some of the 2007.2 GTK software, and the ASU that provides all of the functionality of the 2007.2 software, but with the stability of the FSO and the new GUI toolkits provided by the ASU. It will probably be based on an ASU build, with the FSO software and GTK end-user apps added.

(We're not married to the idea of using the GTK apps, but they already exist and are more-or-less debugged at least on the UI side. If someone knows of a more stable and/or usable app that's appropriate for the OM, let us know by dropping a comment on the Talk tab of this page.)

First steps

The first pass at making the GTK software use the FSO will involve just creating a gsmd workalike that sends commands to the ophoned dbus api from FSO. mickeyterm is an example of another program that lets you send GSM commands through ophoned.

We want to have a build that is stable, so we'll need some standard way of identifying the latest stable pieces of all the different software in the SHR, as well as a way to identify previous released versions of the SHR.

Interest

Here's a list of people who've expressed an interest in working on the SHR. Please add your name (with a link to your user page) if you'd like to help. Also, please put a way to contact you on your user page.

Tasks & status

Here's a list of the tasks for the SHR:

Task Status Owner Helping out Last update
Run the build host Have server CPU time and disk space; just need to talk about git branches paulproteus 2008-07-03
phonekit to ophoned adapter Not started Wurp ferric 2008-07-03
Test & label good SHR releases Needs owner! Put your name here! Nobody yet 2008-07-03
Set up baseline git repo for SHR Not started ferric Nobody yet 2008-07-03
Identify packages to go into SHR Started Anyone & everyone see above 2008-07-03

Statuses:

  • Needs owner! - someone needs to take responsibility for this task
  • Not started - someone has taken responsibility, but hasn't done anything yet...
  • Started - someone has started work, but there is nothing usable yet
  • Alpha - it might work, maybe
  • Beta - it probably works most of the time
  • Maintained - a stable release is out there, working on oddball bugs & new features
  • Done - a stable release is out there, no activity on this task now

List of packages included

From FSO:

  • ophoned
  • preferencesd
  • pimd
  • odeviced
  • lots more...

From 2007.2:

  • TODO
  • lots more...

From ASU:
