Meeting held 2014-07-22 at 20:00 UTC on FreeNode, channel #maemo-meeting (logs)

Attending: Ruediger Schiller (chem|st), (xes),
Jussi Ohenoja (juiceme), Philippe Coval (RzR), Peter Leinchen (peterleinchen)

Partial: Joerg Reisenweber (DocScrutinizer05)

Absent: Niel Nielsen (nieldk)

Summary of topics (ordered by discussion):

  • IRC cloaks
  • administration of IRC channels
  • certificates problem
  • HiFo / MC e.V. transfer
  • future of Harmattan
  • listing of resources

Topic (IRC cloaks):

  • As proposed last meeting by sixwheeledbeast the necessity and the basics (privacy) of cloaks on IRC was discussed briefly.
  • As no one claimed to need that, no decision was made. Possibly to decided next meeting.
  • Discussion faded smoothly to next topic...

Topic (administration of IRC channels):

  • DocScrutinizer05 claimed the non-existence of any administration rights for Maemo affiliated personnel.
  • The only person with IRC administrative rights seems to be Nokia/x-fade.
  • rZr is going to contact x-fade and convince him to add a member of current council to GC (GroupContact) or inform IRC admins to do so.

Topic (certificates problem):

  • chem|st stepped in and announced that all problems regarding certificates and also IRC administration will get solved as soon as the Maemo ownership/licensing is solved.
  • This is work to be done by HiFo (resp. MC e.V.), but community may help getting the website straight by editing the documents in this thread.

Topic (HiFo / MC e.V. transfer):

  • chem|st explained a bit about the current situation of HiFo (Woody is going to close the American HiFo bank account) and registering of MC e.V. (registration still needs to be confirmed by court).

Topic (future of Harmattan):

  • MeeGo/Harmattan is closed down by Nokia. But it is not clear where the rights for Meego/Maemo6/Harmattan are at the moment.
  • FOSS source DVD of Harmattan is available and may be hosted on maemo.org (but not to consider due to resource limiting on current infra).
  • Firmwares/flasher and so on (binary blobs) will most probably never be available like the ones from Maemo (due to binary blobs of 3rd parties).
  • Other resources in question are the SDK repo and some development stuff (scratchbox, VMs).

Topic (listing of resources):

  • It was clearly discussed that hosting of above mentioned resources will be against the law. But a named listing of those resources togther with a md5sum (better: sha1sum) will be okay.
  • So we ask community to step in and help listing those resources. Please see rZr's post or edit directly here.
  • A listing of files available on Nokia's NDS fire servers is also welcome but are to be seen as temporary solution, as those servers are foreseen to close down in near future (at least for our resources).

Action Items:
  • RzR trying to contact x-fade.

profiling is not understanding

When software goes slow, generally, the first reaction is to profile. This might be done through system tools (like Instruments on OS X, perf/valgrind/etc on Linux, VTune, etc). This is fine and good, but just because you have the output of a tool does not necessarily correlate to understanding what is going on.

SlimPort on Android or getting a free FireTV

SlimPort is a feature of Nexus devices which is unfortunately not covered much in reviews. It is still a quite important feature – especially for those who are  interested in getting Amazon Instant Video from the phone on the big screen.
Basically SlimPort is DisplayPort over the Micro-USB connection of your device allowing you to mirror its display.

PADI Rescue diver

For this one I worked really hard. Buddy breading, relaxing people in panic at 20 meters deep, keeping yourself cool. And that in Belgian waters (no visibility and freezing cold). We simulated it all. It was harder than most other things I did in my life.

sailing in search of fresh waters

I've had a long, quiet time on this blog over the past few years while I've been frantically helping Jolla to launch their self-named product: the Jolla. I've enjoyed (almost) every day I've been there: they really are a great bunch of people and the work has been plentiful and challenging.

But as the saying goes, "this too shall pass". Nothing lasts forever, and it's time for a change: after this week, I will be taking a break from Jolla to get some fresh perspective.

On the bright side, maybe I'll have some more time for writing now :)

If anyone is interested in getting a hold of a C++/Qt/QML/Linux expert with a focus on performance, expertise on mobile, and a wide range of knowledge across other areas who loves open source, please let me know.
