Description Daniel Garcia 2010-03-14 14:02:19 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

The 2nd link is a 404. You meant

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
Comment 3 Lorenzo Gil Sanchez 2010-03-15 15:24:28 UTC
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.
Comment 4 Olav Vitters 2010-03-15 18:26:48 UTC
Noticed that Gazpacho badly uses the GNOME infrastructure :-(

Releasing stuff on without having its code in, 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.
Comment 5 Olav Vitters 2010-03-15 18:44:06 UTC
Ok, stupid me, it is in the SVN archive. Still don't like how 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.
Comment 7 Fernando Herrera 2010-03-15 20:22:54 UTC
Yeah, I know Daniel and I could help/mentor him with GNOME infrastructure related issues.
Comment 8 Juanjo Marín 2010-05-14 18:38:58 UTC
Hi, this seems a good application to be under the GNOME umbrellla. I attended a presentation of this application on a Spanish GNOME meeting [1] 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.

Comment 9 Daniel Garcia 2010-07-29 23:36:14 UTC
What's the status of this bug?

I'm continuing writting TBO, now I've created a trac in my server [1] to develop the project, but I hope that someday that project could be at

I'm working now in other gnome project, adding a11y to evince [2], 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.

Comment 10 Olav Vitters 2010-07-29 23:42:29 UTC
Just try and say hi to me @ GUADEC. I won't have my laptop with me, but that'll be enough.
Comment 11 Christer Edwards 2010-08-31 19:32:00 UTC
@Olav - can this be closed? Did you forget? I don't see a tbo project in
Comment 12 Olav Vitters 2010-09-01 08:08:28 UTC
Christer: He didn't see me @ GUADEC, so I forgot.
