Hi,


Nobody does, apparently.

Anyone who knows about Fonts, Locale, and Rexxc having icons, then? Those are not Amiga either, AFAIC, but please inform me otherwise. I could imagine Fonts and Locale getting access from the workbench if the files there can really be double-clicked to change the locale, of can be dragged onto a pref program to change its font settings. But can they? For Libs and ARexx, I see no reason for workbench access at all.
That leaves Developer, which isn't Amiga, TTBOMK. As I'm not sure what's supposed to be in there, I'm not sure whether it needs an icon.

Anyone who sees a purpose for icons for any of those?

Bye
Mysha

Hi,

There's no reason why there shouldn't BE an AROSX. Also, there's even a small development advantage for AROS, in that it requires an outside view at AROS.

The downside is that porting UNIX takes developer time. For that reason, AROS developers aren't likely to do it. But, of course, if you are/know an X developer looking for a project to take on, then by all means.

Hi,

Does anyone know why Libs has an icon in AROS? It's really a directory holding a collection of system files, so why would one need access to it from the workbench?

Bye

So, is there a way to start a bounty for getting 4Play the money he needs for that?

Hi,

> Is the AROS wikibook maintained?
Not that I know of.

> Should it be killed to eliminate multiple conflicting sources of information?

Mostly, we need to decide what to do with it. If we want to use the wiki-ness, then we should have (almost) all our documentation there, harvesting mature pages (licenses allowing) so our offline documentation develops as well. In that case we need it actively maintained.
If we just want it for online-book-hood, then we develop the docs in the SVN, and pump out stable pages to the online-book. That just needs a warning that others may temporarily scribble what they will, there. (You'd actually want a different wiki (if at all), or different settings for that; the content would have to be protected and the scribbling would be done in the comment area, much like the wikiwikiweb had it.)


> communicating an up-to-date roadmap, especially areas that need work

We seem to find it difficult to communicate that on the level of doable chunks.


> encouraging new developers and ensuring "getting started" documentation is up to date

Having "Getting started" information to begin with.


> What does everyone think?

We're rarely attracting that kind of people. Best you can do is pick one of these goals, and a level of activity that you're comfortable with to strive for that goal yourself. It's the involvement of large numbers of people that might make it work. (Chicken and egg, of course.)

I'm aware that there's a GIT mirror; I'm just not aware of its status. I'll happily add an explanation on GIT to the repository html page, but I don't know
1 Who can use it for what;
2 How the SVN and GIT parts work together;
3 What a young GIT needs to know about using if for contributing to AROS.
(I see we also have anonymous SVN again. What do we need to document on that?)

(Or is that a list issue? I'll read it there as well.)

Hi,

Regarding the Bounty system: Bounty systems exist because, unless you're part of a patron system (like a job), it's difficult to match up skill and time with a reward for time spent
Any bounty system will suffer from (Erm, how not to assume the worst?) the Tibet problem. If it's pay-on-completion, then the person who went to Tibet for seven years can't be asked to pay up; if it's request-and-pay then that same traveller can't be reached when the request becomes void through changing circumstances.
Some systems are better in handling this than others. If the current system is not really good in handling this, are we able to update the system? How? And what could we do about bounties that are stuck in their wait for the Day of Days?

Are there any bounties that are stuck? If so, which, and is there a way to indicate that a bounty is now in disfavour?


Regarding the recruiting of developers: What problems does the new developer face at the moment? Are these organic, or are they organisational?

OK, let me rephrase:
"Hey, if the current system of bounties doesn't work, start a new thread about it."

Hey, if the current system of bounties doesn't work, redistribute the wealth, improve the system, start a new thread about it. I just saw the benefit of asynchronous handshakes over synchronous ones.
