Hello ~

I was reading a post on Linuxdevices.com regarding a new Gnome Mobile release:

http://www.linuxdevices.com/news/NS9550098480.html

It got me thinking; is there any collaboration going on between pMEA and Gnome Mobile? It seems like a great community and platform to exist on.

thx
ken

There's a partial GTK 1.2 pMEA PP port that we could use their help on.

Hi Hinkmond,

Yes, I'm aware of that work. I feel the itch to help on that as well, even though I know very little about GTK+. I'm curious, why not target a more modern version of GTK+?

thx

Hi Ken,

That's a good point. Targeting a real-world device that has a more
recent version GTK+ is a good suggestion.

If you (and others on this list) were to pick one GTK device (to unify
on a toolchain, implementation, functionality, bug reproducibility
platform, etc.), though, which one would it be?

Gnome Mobile
Nokia N700/N800
OpenMoko
Access Linux Platform (ALP)
Ubuntu MID Edition (Mobile)
Other: ________

(Maybe I should post a java.net poll???)

Thanks,
Hinkmond

Well, I think there are two layers. A device or platform and the build tools. I feel comfortable with any platform that is supported by OpenEmbedded (OE) or Poky. In your list, Gnome Mobile, Open Moko, and the Nokia tables would work. The great thing about OE in general is that it unifies a package across several machines and platforms. Of course, my priority would be the BUG. But since we use Poky, other OE based platforms would immediately benefit as well. Poll sounds good :)
