GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 612865
Git new repository for a new project (TBO)
Last modified: 2010-09-01 08:38:34 UTC
I'm coding a c/gtk+/cairo application and I want that this application become part of gnome project.
repository name: tbo
TBO is a simple comic editor thinked to give to the user an easy way to create comics, presentations or introductions to any concept in a comic form, like the famous google chrome comic.
The TBO project meets the ProjectPrerequisites because:
* "The project must be free/open source software." -> It's gplv3.
* "It must use GTK+/GNOME technologies." -> it's a interface made with gtk+ and cairo.
* "It must be maintained, and already have had at least one public release." -> you can see it in http://github.com/danigm/tbo.
The 2nd link is a 404. You meant http://danigm.net/TBO.
Anyway, seems like a fun project.
Do you know anyone involved within GNOME?

Yes, I know to 'lgs' "gazpacho" author, pygtk+ documentor and sends some patch to gtk+ and to 'Fernando Herrera' who is the responsible for gnome-love project
I confirm I know Daniel García.
He is a free software believer pretty fluent in C, GTK+, Cairo and other GNOME related technologies.
I hope this TBO project of him is his starting point into the GNOME community and not just his first contribution.
Noticed that Gazpacho badly uses the GNOME infrastructure :-(
Releasing stuff on ftp.gnome.org without having its code in git.gnome.org, putting binaries in the sources directory, etc :-(
Not very happy with this. This comes across as misuse of general freedom you have on gnome infrastructure.
Ok, stupid me, it is in the SVN archive. Still don't like how ftp.gnome.org looks

Oh, it looks like a bug in our release script:
Sorry about the mess in the sources directory.
As you already noticed I'm not actively maintaining Gazpacho for the latest two years. A couple of people volunteered to do it but they couldn't find the time at the end. That's one of the reasons it hasn't been migrated to git yet.
Still, I'd like not to turn this bug into a Gazpacho problems thread since we should be talking about TBO.
We'll ask Fernando to put his thoughts about this just to give you a second opinion.
Yeah, I know Daniel and I could help/mentor him with GNOME infrastructure related issues.
Hi, this seems a good application to be under the GNOME umbrellla. I attended a presentation of this application on a Spanish GNOME meeting  and I've got good impression from this.
I know that the Andalusian distro, Guadalinex, is thinking about including this app on their repositories so it there is public interest on this application.
It is especially relevant, in my opinion, that it has a good potential to be use on schools environments so I think is worth to support this application with our infraestructure.
What's the status of this bug?
I'm continuing writting TBO, now I've created a trac in my server  to develop the project, but I hope that someday that project could be at projects.gnome.org/tbo.
I'm working now in other gnome project, adding a11y to evince , and now I know more people involved within GNOME, indeed, I'm at guadec now.
Please, give me an account because I want to collaborate more actively and I want to add TBO project to GNOME.
Just try and say hi to me @ GUADEC. I won't have my laptop with me, but that'll be enough.
@Olav - can this be closed? Did you forget? I don't see a tbo project in git.gnome.org.
Christer: He didn't see me @ GUADEC, so I forgot.
Daniel: Please request a new Git account at http://live.gnome.org/NewAccounts.
As 'module' to vouch for, choose 'bugzilla.gnome.org'! Nothing else! That'll make it go through to me.
Git account created.
