these are leftovers from the main page - please use the new feature process Features/Policy for those as well.

  • repackage Measure
Owner/Coordinator: ???
  • add Open Office for Children
Owner/Coordinator: ???
  • add a video editing activity

Activities external to Sugar

launch activities outside of Sugar

Owner/Coordinator: ???

integration with new Collabora code

on-the-fly i18n support

Let users translate strings and push them back to Pootle

  • as per C Scott's demo from Sugar Camp 2008-11
Owner/Coordinator: ???

Read Activity

  • Bookmarks support
    • Owner: Sayamindu
    • Status: 75% complete (bookmarks work - support adding notes to them is pending)

    • Status: 80% complete (Epub files are fully viewable. Changes to webkit needs to be upstreamed)
  • Long keypress support
    • Owner: Sayamindu
    • Status: 50% complete (proof of concept code ready, needs integration into Read codebase, and one patch for Xlib needs to go upstream)

ImageViewer Activity

    • Status: Complete

Version support for datastore

See Version_support_for_datastore/Proposal.

  • Owner/Coordinator: Silbe

Datastore features that could benefit Library

These features can benefit Activities/Library activity. At present(for 0.82/0.84) Library uses "rich" datastore client which fetches all Journal objects to make short list of objects(by collapsing all versions to one item), moreover it has to unzip .xo bundles to get bundle_id value. So its not good.

With all these features implemented Library can use "thin" datastore client and not fetch all objects, just make proper request for datasotre.find() to get sorted and collapsed objects by portions (by using offset/limit find() arguments).

find() returns only last versions of journal objects

So, all objects should be grouped by "object_id" which could be:

  • activity_id for objects that were generated by activities
  • bundle_id for .xo bundles in the Journal
  • uid for other objecets

Sort find()'s resultset

Let datastore clients sort objects by any field(not only predefined like uid, activity_id etc).

  • Sort by buddies count
  • Owner/Coordinator: ?


Add support for the current version of Rainbow so

  1. security flaws in Browse (which are the norm rather than the exception) don't allow an attacker to take over the machine and
  2. programming mistakes cannot affect other activities (like deleting all Journal contents).
  • Owner/Coordinator: ?


Add some automated testing to catch bugs earlier and ease integration work:

  • SugarBot (activity-level testing)
  • some system-level tests (e.g. verify datastore works correctly)
  • regression tests
  • Owner/Coordinator: ?
