Hello KDEnlive people,
I'm new to the list, my name is Jean-Nicolas Artaud,
but you may know me as morice-net on IRC. I've already contributed on
calligra, especialy stage (even if I began with KOffice and KPresenter).
I'm engineer in software development (C++/Qt) and I contribute on my
free time only, trying my best :-) I also have an organisation
background with some events I manage in Toulouse, France.
What makes me come to you ? Plenty of KDEnlive fans
and users are sad that their favourite open software doesn't have any
evolution for a while. Technicaly speaking the master is in a broken
state. Jean-Baptiste Mardelle has begun a big refactoring, and we can
see no push on the master since the 4th of June. In two weeks, it will
have long 6 months without a commit, and the state of the master is
What I would like to do ? I can see that the
community is present, both in an user and a developer PoV. I just would
like to set the master in a good state, so that people can contribute
again, and help me in fixing bugs and adding missing features and making
this software lives again. That would be awesome. To realise this, I am
wondering if you guys would be okay in the plan I'm discribing on the
The commit that breaks the master is the merge from "refactoring" branch. The previous one is
commit restart plan:
Date: Wed Jun 5 12:43:04 2013 +0200
Small cleanup and fix crash when switching to SDL display
To reset the master in a good state, I guess it's a
good start. By the way, the refactoring work cannot be lost. It's
something that needs info so why not just putting it in a branch waiting
the return of king Jean-Baptiste.
So what do you think of that ? Am I wrong in some points ? Do you agree with me.
wouldn't like KDEnlive to stop involve, so I guess we'll make this
change in something like 2 or 3 weeks. I would appreciate some returns
of you to sure that it is the good way to do !
Thanks for reading
