IM, Contacts and Social Hackfest, day one

In Cambridge (the proper one, in Cambridgeshire), at the Collabora offices, for the first day of our IM, Contacts and Social Hackfest.

Today, we:
  • discussed end-user problems with Telepathy and Empathy's gnome-shell integration (and started the specifications necessary to fixing some of those bugs) (everyone for the problems listing, Danni and Guillaume for the start of bug fixing)
  • started working on integrating gnome-keyring dialogues into the Shell (Stef Walter)
  • fixed libfolks bugs (Philip), and discussed a potential problem API problem in the folks to evolution-data-server synchronisation code (which will be used in the Contacts API) (Travis, Raul, Bastien)
  • packaged up gnome-online-accounts for Fedora (Bastien)
  • worked on better high-level tp-glib support for file transfers (Morten)
  • HMAC support in glib (Stef Walter)
Tomorrow we'll have Rob Bradford joining us, and probably start talking about GNOME Online Accounts integration with libsocialweb, as a way to kickstart its use all across the desktop.

Please tell me that the HMAC support uses an existing crypto library instead of adding a new implementation.

Is KDE out of scope for this meeting?

Anon #1: Yes, KDE is out of scope for this meeting. It's a GNOME hackfest...

Anon #2: gnome-online-accounts packages are at:

Miloslav: It's an existing implementation that'll be moved in glib itself.
