I've altered tuxpaint-stamps's Makefile so that each of the various
top-level folders under 'stamps/' are installed one at a time.
This allows a science teacher, for example, to do:
And not worry about sports, or seasonal, or funky hat stamps from being
This fixes (at least partially), the issue of stamp appropriateness.
* Some stamps are controversial (i.e., the military ones, for some...
various religious ones in 'seasonal' for others...)
* Some uses of Tux Paint may require that kids stay focused on a particular
task. See the 'science teacher' example, above.
(Of course, teachers and parents have always been able to simply install
everything, and then delete the ones they didn't want.)
I would like the future release of Tux Paint Stamps builds to work
similarly. For example:
Windows ZIP &
Linux packages - Release separate ZIPs or package files for each category.
Windows Installer &
Mac OS X Installer - The download can still contain everything (like
the source .tar.gz will), and provide checkboxes
that allow parents/teachers to pick what they want
Sound good? Thanks,
