So, it has been a busy week of Qt and KDE hacking in the beautiful city of Vienna.
Besides getting quite some of the Viennese staple food, schnitzel, it was an interesting adventure of getting smarter.
- Getting smarter about making sure what happens in North Korea doesn’t stay in North Korea
- Getting smarter about what is up with this newfangled Wayland technology and how KDE uses it
- Getting smarter about how to Konquer the world and welcoming new contributors
- Getting smarter about opensource licensing compliance
- Getting smarter about KItinerary, the opensource travel assistant
- Getting smarter about TNEF, a invitation transport format that isn’t that neutral
- Getting smarter about Yocto, automotive and what KDE can do
And lots of other stuff.
Besides getting smarter, also getting to talk to people about what they do and to write some patches are important events.
I also wrote some code. Here is a highlight:
- https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-48344 is now fixed. Finding reviewers for the glib event dispatcher in Qt was the hard part about that.
- https://phabricator.kde.org/D14798 Disable the workaround for the above mentioned bug report
- https://phabricator.kde.org/D14772 Deprecated and removed https://phabricator.kde.org/D14832 some code
- https://phabricator.kde.org/D14797 Got KItinerary to parse QRCodes
- https://phabricator.kde.org/D14885 Cleaned up and bugfixed in KTnef
- https://cgit.kde.org/scratch/sune/kolorfill.git/ Added install rules to my little game
And a lot of other minor things, including handling a couple of Debian bugs.
What I’m hoping to either put to my own todolist, or preferably others, is
- Provide Kolorfill for android and plasma mobile
- Receive tnef files I can use for unit testing
- Consolidate all the zxing-cpp forks to get distributions to package it
- Polish my recipe application, kookbook, a bit more
I felt productive, welcome and … ready to sleep for a week.
