Fedora GSoC: Week 12

Posted by ankur in Tech (105 words, approximately a 1 minute read)

Kradview and freediams look like they're on the road to being approved soon. Freediams has a little issue with shared sonames, and I've emailed upstream requesting clarification.

I've just updated the python-hl7 spec and srpm at the review ticket. It's another easy package and should be approved in no time …

Fedora GSoC: Week 10

Posted by ankur in Tech (394 words, approximately a 2 minute read)

Like I had said, I didn't try to package any new applications this week. (I did actually, but I haven't submitted any review tickets this week). This week was about working on the existing review tickets.

To start with, "toothchart" was reviewed and approved. I'm grateful to Mario Blättermann, who …

One cannot have a better work environment than to be at home with a singular task to focus on. I worked quite a bit this week, and I'm still neck deep in work. As lot of the work is to do with fixing upstream source, rather than packaging them up …

Fedora GSoC: Week 7

Posted by ankur in Tech (222 words, approximately a 1 minute read)

This one's a little later than usual. I've been travelling and just arrived at my destination.

I'd describe the week as eventful, but we'll come back to that later. First, the progress:

I submitted Aeskulap and kradview for review. I also packaged Fiji (most of it anyway), until I ran …

Fedora GSoC : Week 5

Posted by ankur in Tech (273 words, approximately a 2 minute read)

I did quite a bit of work this week. I really did :P

dcm4che is finally on the verge of packaging. It builds correctly, and there's a minor glitch in the javadoc generation which I think would be corrected in a day or two. It's build dependency, dcm4che-test has almost …
