Mozilla Maemo Danish Weekend/Mer

[edit] Mer at the Danish Weekend

The high level goal of this focus area is to bring Mer closer to 1.0, which is meant to be the first day-to-day usable release on Nokia Internet Tablets. Maemo 5 will be in beta stage at this point and and we should be able to provide Fremantle APIs and a Maemo 4 replacement to Nokia N8x0(W) users when Maemo 5 is out. The hope is to be able to use the synergy of bringing so many Maemo and Mer related personalities together, to be able to move ahead on things that would take longer if having to be done online.

Sub-goals, which serve as guidelines for activities:

  • Control panels to be able to control behavior of your tablet.
  • Developer tools - Builders, cross compilation environments and IDEs.
  • Artwork and UI design - Icons, themes, backgrounds, animations, shining up interfaces through code, etc.
  • Hardware interfacing and event-reaction daemons (implementing behavior similar to or better than Maemo 4).
  • Integration with both on a organizational (relation to council, community) and technical level (package and image builders, repositories).
  • Alignment with Maemo 5 APIs and integration of Nokia-closed software in restricted images.
  • Chasing down showstopper bugs which would hinder user adoption of Mer 1.0.
  • Discussions on Mer after 1.0 and presentations on Mer to potential users and developers.
  • Getting the Mer project developers and contributors together for the first time.
