Description Dylan McCall 2013-09-09 20:27:59 UTC
I am working on GNOME Break Timer for my GSoC 2013 project. It's an application that helps people to take regular breaks. I'm just polishing it up now for a first stable release.

At the moment, the source is hosted at I'd like this to be hosted in a new git repository under, with the name "gnome-break-timer".

You can find out more about the project at

Incidentally, I do not yet have a git account. Should I request one?

Project prerequisites:
1. Everything is licensed under GNU GPL 3.0 or later.
2. It's using Vala and GTK+3 (with many of the cool new toys in 3.10), and it has the usual automake setup seen in GNOME projects. The application communicates with GNOME Shell over dbus for some tight integration.
3. The project is maintained by me (Dylan McCall). I don't expect a particularly action-packed development cycle in the future, but I'm keeping it easily maintainable with unit tests and documentation.
4. To the best of my knowledge, GNOME Break Timer does not infringe on any patents.
5. Copyright assignment is not required.

The request looks good to me, would you mind getting your mentor to ack this request?

Ideally you can request a new account at, from there select 'Git account' and the module that your mentor maintains. If your mentor doesn't maintain any module, just let me know who he is so I can mail him directly on the ticket and get a confirmation for this project.

I've imported the git repo for now:

I assume Dylan should apply for a new account with the gnome-break-timer module?

Repository was imported and user has been created.
