2nd Mac porters meeting
2nd and 3rd of December 2006
Google Hamburg ABC-Strasse 19 20354 Hamburg Germany
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)

Common sessions / Workshops around native issues:
Warning: this is a draft (Initial version Eric Bachard, modifications by Tino Rachui) : Agenda - 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)
