We are now in the GNOME Meeting in Pamplona, about 24 people mainly developers.
Planner and Evolution integration
I have presented Planner and the integration with Evolution and it seems that we are going to have to integrate ideas but going in the right path.
GNOME System tools
Now Carlos Garnacho is talking about GNOME System Tools and it showing us the new tool for sharing contents in networks: a configurator for SAMBA and NFS. The tool is very near to be in beta testing stage and the main problem is that you need to enter the root password to use the tool, but Carlos is working in a tool similar to sudo but simplified in order the user enters the root password only one time, like consolehelper in Red Hat. He needs more time to finish the tool and show it to the world. The main problem are the securities issues.
Carlos Garcia is goint to show now the Disk Admin tool, from GNOME System Tools, a tool that is getting better and better. It is hard to have it user friendly because the disks world concepts, but Carlos is doing a good work.
Txema from Igalia.com company is now showing us the Fisterra ERP product. He us showing us the work with distributed system to manage companies using CORBA, libgda and sync technologies for databases. They are working heavly in the libraries and other technologies in the platform. Then, they will create an example of use of the ERP.
Spanish GNOME Development book
Time to talk a little about the GNOME book that we are writing since 4 years ago. It is a no end project and I am not sure if we are going someday to finish it ;-) We need a leader for the project because I feel we have resources, but we need someone who really love the book.
Rodrigo is showing us in big figures the Evolution architecture, that libcamel is going to be distributed alone from Evolution and how to help in the project, working in easy fix bugs.
To close the morning, we have presented the working groups for this afternoon and tomorrow day. I hope we do some productive working together.
I will add more contents as the show go on :)
