I started hacking the fosdem-maemo and have several questions.
I know there was a question about not full support of pentabarf format. I checked several conferences, they all look ok. I already cloned pentabarf sources, but maybe somebody already looked at it deeper and have examples of documents that cause problems or otherwise knows about some issues? It would be nice to know about it. Or probably it's already fixed and there is nothing to do?
Then, to make the application more general, there must be a possibility to use other conferences without changing hardcoded values. This requires some redesign of the conference tab. I'm not very strong in GUI design, so I'm asking to help me with ideas how to make it.
Basically, users should be able to do the following things with the application:
* have a separate schedule URL for each conference
* refresh the existing conference schedule
* get a new conference by entering URL
* change of the URL for an existing conference; run refresh together with it is ok and even justified by usability, but it must not loose this change if network not available or refresh is not done by some other reason. So it cannot be done as "do like previous one and rely on REPLACE".
BTW, there is a new qt4.6 for maemo, and it supports the nice n900 window menus, something probably should go there.
Thanks, have a nice weekend
