Marketing Team/Events/Gtk3 Hackfest 2011
Gtk3 Hackfest 2011
Two major changes have recently occurred in Sugar's underlying technologies. Firstly, GTK+ 2 has been obsoleted by GTK+ 3, and GNOME is now based on GTK+ 3. Secondly, PyGTK, the underlying Python library that Sugar uses to call into GTK+, has been deprecated in favour of PyGObject Introspection (hereafter "PyGI"). More background info can be found at Features/GTK3. Goal of this hackfest is to remove the biggest blockers before we can start the porting and potentially start porting over.
Location: Praha (Prague), Czech Republic
Date: Friday, October 28th - Sunday October 30th 2011

We want to thank brmlab for hosting us during the week.
- removing Hippo and other custom widgets
- migration path to Gtk3 (do we ship two toolkits? Do we migrate the shell and the toolkit and activities at once?)
- porting Sugar's theme to gtk3 (go benzea, go!)
- other introspected libraries that need work (namely NM)
