Reason for meetings and Tetris project repo is stale

This is the log info for the src directory in our repo. There have been no changes to it for almost a month? Since I was the last to change it, I know that it was last updated when we had our first meeting at ACCAD in the fishbowl. Can we get the most recent source in the repository please?

I’ll be more than happy to teach the basics of how to use SVN and when/why to use the tool. I would like to have the few developers checking in designs and updates when the make them and I plan on making a second repository for the website. As it stands there has been a little activity in the group of late. I think that we should think about rethinking why we have meetings and perhaps make live meetings a way to teach new tools, and bring people in to show off what they have done that week. Instead of planning and talking about little things. That can be done on the bulletin board.

The more discussion, even if a little off topic, the better.

Some additions to have made

The purpose of this site is to let everyone have a opportunity to participate. Lurk if you feel the need, but any input or suggestion or a simple salutation is a sign that people are actively interested in what we are doing. I want to make this whole site/group better, and better able to work together in many different ways. I want to make some changes to our system, and to add some tools to our site suite. Some ideas of things that I want and I think would be useful for everyone are:

  • Task assignment list
  • More information on our projects
  • Listing of the groups leadership hierarchy
  • List of technologies we use (perhaps a tool suite)
  • Thank you page and any affiliations
  • Well thought out coding style and project process
  • Some tutorials, and getting started help
  • Help wanted section
  • Project calender
  • IRC channel
  • Wiki

Feel free to tell me what more we should do, or if anything here if useless. I was also thinking of adding a project managment portal, and thats a list of some FOSS versions that I’ve found. I also want to perhaps start some more online activities to generate a more robust community.

Any time you want to talk about GCC related things, post them here or in the BBS. I want questions and discussions to be public, and searchable. This enables more people to be in the know about whats going on and to also learn how we do things. I would like to bring back the weekly online internet chats. It seemed that that was good way for people to interact. If/When I get an IRC channel up, I’ll most likely be a constant in the room, and if a few other people would also agree to man the chat room, we could possibly branch out more easily since newcomers would have a fast and easy way to directly communicate with members.

Thoughts? Ideas?

Tetris files uploaded

Today I uploaded :

  • the updated tetris image files. There are several file formats for you to choose from.
  • template for the layout of the tetris game window so that whoever wants to make a theme can do so. However everything that you see in the file must stay exactly where it is and keep its shape/size except for the text and the gcc logo.
  • temp block files
  • intro flash animation tests
