How to get there

Airport: HAM
There is a bus connection from the airport. 
Hamburg Airport does not yet have a direct rail connection to the city centre. 
The nearest subway & suburban railway station, Ohlsdorf, is served by
suburban rail lines S1 and S11 and the subway line U1; all of these will take you
to or from the main station, Hauptbahnhof, or Jungfernstieg [city centre].
Ohlsdorf station and the Terminals are connected by the number 110 bus,
the "Airport-Express", which runs every 10 minutes.
A taxi costs about 10 euros in one direction.

[FIXME] : find additionnal informations for people who didn't find how connect from airport to the meeting ( both directions)

A fun weekend of hacking! Google will provide the following facilities on-site:

  • A largish room with projectors for talks
  • 5 Mac PRO workstations for hacking use during the conference

Google status: Things look OK at this point, unless there are any last minute snags.

Other hardware available : ericb will provide a macbook pro + a mac mini (powerpc) with prebuilt Aqua version

Tino will provide an Imac 20" for workshops

Common sessions / Workshops around native issues: 

Warning: this is a draft 

 (Initial version Eric Bachard, modifications by Tino Rachui) :


 - Greeting and Introduction
 - Latest Mac porting news
 - Status of the Mac port
 - Definition of and agreement on an agenda for the weekend
 - Go ...

Suggestions of interesting topics for the meeting:

 - Technical description of work in progress
 - What needs to be done toward an alpha version of the port
 - Define manageable chunks of work 

Technical points to fix together:

1) Reorganize the tree for native version ( ericb'd vote for an obr task :-)  )

2) Improve configure for both Aqua and X11 version /  ( Claude Lohmaier )
   A) modify configure step : provide config.parms.aqua, 
      config.parms.X11 containing specific Mac OS X command line, and just use 
      ./configure --with-config.parms=config.parms.aqua ( or config.parms.X11 )   

   B) or fix configure. Current issues : bad or wrong/missing autodetection 
      of things

3) Session (workshop?)  about native controls implementation : 
   code review/design or continue the work 

4) In case everything is not ready
   current work in progress: fonts 
   (multiline sallayout : understand what has to be done, describe the todo) 
   - workshop about debugging OpenOffice.org on Mac OS X :
     gdb .. maybe complete with leaks and/or other tools ?

Possible action items : 

- discuss and define a precise todolist
- divide the work 
- describe party : describe with words and sentences what has exactly to be
  done for missing parts:  

Where in the code, who can provide informations, tips...etc
- write a list of missing classes and methods.
- define code intregration strategy
- define rules for code review based on wiki
- define a plan for Aqua Human Interface Guidelines integration 
  (modify menus ? ) 

Other subjects for what volunteers can propose workshops :
- Debuging /using tools for track and /or analyse bugs (very well adapted 
  to workshops) 
 - QA workshop for Mac OS X 
 - windowing (salinst*)
 - redrawing
 - fonts
 - native printing  (WIP by Yvan Barthélemy, who will provide informations ) 
 - packaging 
 ..etc (propose other)
