[jitsi-dev] GSoC / Debian packaging


#1

I'm offering to mentor GSoC projects under Debian, and I've including
Jitsi packaging as an example of something that would mentored:

  http://wiki.debian.org/SummerOfCode2013/Projects

It would be good to know if anybody from the Jitsi team would be willing
to collaborate as a co-mentor, please feel free to add yourself on the wiki

It would also be good to get links between all the related RTC projects
that have GSoC info pages on their web sites - is Jitsi applying
directly this year?

There is an ITP (Intent To Package) entry for Jitsi:

ITP: jitsi -- multi-protocol audio/video and chat communicator
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=627362

I suggest to ask and inform Bart Martens <bartm@quantz.debian.org> about
this as he changed the subject from RFP to ITP on 2012-12-10.

Maybe he wants to act as a co-mentor ?

Cheers,
Andreas

BTW: I liked your contribution in Brussels a few weeks ago.

For the record, we are quite advanced in the Debian packaging process and
only need to address a few more comments before we are ready with a first
submission.

Of course, maybe once submitted, people would want to improve it in some
ways (like spinning off some of our libs into separate packages) and a gsoc
project could possibly help with that.

Cheers,
Emil

Great, please let me know when you upload it on the mentors site

Of course, maybe once submitted, people would want to improve it in
some ways (like spinning off some of our libs into separate packages)
and a gsoc project could possibly help with that.

The GSoC project I've proposed on Debian (please do have a look at the
details) is quite broad and would allow one ore more students to work in
areas of their preference, with a goal of making RTC components in
Debian interoperable or more convenient.

Packaging or enhancement of Jitsi is just one of the suggested topics,
this could mean a lot of other things too, e.g. developing a mechanism
for integration testing the different softphones systematically to make
sure they can call each other (e.g. from Jitsi to Empathy)

Please let me know (or add your name to the wiki page) if you might be
interested in acting as a contact or co-mentor for this
