Used in combination with sugar-settings-manager. Should probably have never been in sugar, but rather in sugar-settings-manager. sugar-settings-manager apparently didn't work reliably and was dropped from Dextrose 2, never shipped in Dextrose 3. We should check whether we still need this (for configuring global default font settings) in GTK 3 world and try to use upstream gnome-settings-daemon rather than duplicating its functionality.

Activity Central Priority Patches list & Status: Dextrose/3/ACPriorityPatches

Ready to upstream

Change the method to add new actitivities in the activities list in home view (Jorge Saldivar)

This patch seems o.k but needs to be updated to latest sugars.

https://bugs.sugarlabs.org/ticket/1660 (in comment).

  • Assigned to: Rafael (dirakx)
  • Blockers: Don't think there are any
  • Current Status: Being discussed with upstream (follow ticket history)

Add lease duration information in about my computer (Anish Mangal)

We need check xo-1.75 compatibility

  • Assigned to: Anish (m_anish)
  • Blockers: None
  • Current status: Patch Coming soon (port to mainline done)

Globalkey for touchpad device icon (Martin Abente)

Must be upstreamable,.especify for only 1.0. to check deviceicon/touchpad.py for specific path and verify hotkey <alt-m> ??

http://git.sugarlabs.org/dextrose/mainline/blobs/bleeding-edge/rpms/sugar/0040-Globalkey-for-touchpad-device-icon.patch

  • Assigned to: Anish (m_anish)
  • Blockers: None
  • Current status: Patch coming soon (tested, ported)

To do while GTK3 port

Clipboard menu off screen #2201 (Aleksey Lim):

Note: We nend to add new functionality to the pallete in order to allow max widht and add widgets instead of only text.

Better to do in gtk3 port, this patch its a hack.

http://git.sugarlabs.org/dextrose/mainline/blobs/bleeding-edge/rpms/sugar/0045-Clipboard-menu-off-screen-2201.patch

Set default scaling to 100 (unknown author)

in GTK3 is going to be possible to set scale with other units than pixels. like CSS. We must see Gnome bugs..and ask Carlos Garnacho.

  • Assigned to: Anish (m_anish)

As for the current patch, I'll post it upstream, but it would be understandable if its rejected. Further research and follow up with gnome is outside the scope of upstreaming this particular patch.

Add font dpi schema (Jorge Saldivar)

Needs to be analyzed for post - GTK3 and propose a features page.

Old feature page http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Features/Font_configuration

  • Assigned to: Anish (m_anish)
  • Current status: Need to review whether to include in future dextrose. (Needs some testing, after which it may be dropped)
  • Quoting Sascha <silbe@activitycentral.com> verbatim:

Need design reviews

Database support for 3G control panel (Andrés Ambrois)

  • Current status/Blockers: This probably requires porting some of the code in model.py to be NM 0.9 compliant. A simple port of this patch to mainline didnt work out of the box (preliminary attempt)

Notification enhancements (Martin Abente)

Patch not found, prepare a feature request, comments in link: https://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Notification_system_draft

To review actual state in regard to GTK3.

[anish, ask on sugar-devel if porting to gtk3 first. Goal: having design discussed in sugar-devel and the feature upstream] [DISCUSS how to implement this]


Yum-updater notifications integration (Aleksey Lim)

Needs to be investigated and use package kit instead of yum.

to acoount integration debian or other service. Use ubuntu-fedora related implementations.

[anish, depends on Notification enhancements]


Journal Backup / Restore (Martin Abente)

Redo feature page and analyse if this can be done on the control panel.

PATCH :http://git.sugarlabs.org/dextrose/mainline/blobs/bleeding-edge/rpms/sugar/0019-Journal-Volumes-Backup-and-Restore.patch

Old: http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Sugar_Creation_Kit/sck/Backup-restore

[DISCUSS how to implement this]


Memory and cpu resource indicator (Anish Mangal)

It needs to be re-designed. ? CPU cycles code must be tuned for ARM ?

Does this needs CPU cycles, suspend resume behavior?, Using it only with the fram is open.

  • Assigned to: Anish (m_anish)

http://git.sugarlabs.org/dextrose/mainline/blobs/bleeding-edge/rpms/sugar/0082-uy-1242-Batch-Operations-on-Journal-Entries-Copy-Era.patch

Needs design discussion. [DISCUSS how to implement this]


New microformat activity updater (Anish Mangal)

This http://git.sugarlabs.org/dextrose/mainline/blobs/bleeding-edge/rpms/sugar/0060-Replace-activity-updater-with-microformat-compatible.patch

https://dev.laptop.org/ticket/10641

[DISCUSS how to implement this]


Need follow feature process

Extend sugar-launch with more options (Martin Abente)

We need to make a feature page for that, the change its simple but its needs discussion.

Share 3g connection (Martin Abente)

Need investigation regards New network manager versions, impleting share connection feature (for all kinds of connections), and needs desing for sugar interface experience.

Enable to call the frame from arbitrary code avoiding circular imports (Aleksey Lim)

Show register gconf value (Martin Abente)

ISTR the Design Team had an issue with this (or maybe just with another "Register" menu item related topic). We should restart discussions on this. From a UX perspective, it would be nice if we could automatically determine whether a School Server is available, rather than always showing the option and adding a crutch to disable it. There are privacy issues to consider (that are potentially shared with the existing code; see e.g. a discussion of the current security model). We need a link to discussion, why is this needed and what the problems are.


Feedback feature (Aleksey Lim, Mukesh Gupta)

New feature page, design dicussion.

needs new desing and analisis, follow: abrt, apport..and request how is it used in Paraguay. Low prioriy.

Probably the best solution is taking it out.
