#537 fixed Work with Alex to transition send_message to Zenity (or libnotify) jdreed jdreed

Reported by jdreed, 14 years ago.


All the cool kids use barnowl these days, and nobody runs zwgc. send_message should really avoid writing to the Terminal unless $DISPLAY isn't set. It should instead communicate with the user via zenity, or possibly notify-send. notify-send would be all shiny, but libnotify-bin isn't installed by default, and (at least in Jaunty) messages behave weirdly with metacity when you mouse-over them.

#538 wontfix Document the autodebathenification process in the wiki jdreed jdreed

Reported by jdreed, 14 years ago.


The process should be documented, including any control or flag files, and why, for example, it's trying to fetch things from  http://localhost:9999

#564 fixed clean up licensing jdreed geofft

Reported by geofft, 14 years ago.

  • There are (at least) two versions of the MIT license in use in our packages: one along the lines of <mit-copyright.h>/<mit-sipb-copyright.h>, and one the X11/Expat license, which is what the world at large considers the MIT license. We should standardize on one, probably the latter, because in my reading the former ("Permission to use, copy, modify, and distribute this software and its documentation for any purpose and without fee is hereby granted...") implies that you can't make derivatives or sell them.
  • The names of people who own copyrights are often wrong. For instance, Tim Abbott and Anders Kaseorg are listed as owning the copyrights for debathena-printing-config's packaging, but they haven't ever committed to that package.
  • Binary packages that use DEB_TRANSFORM_FILES and therefore include modified versions of upstream files, and potentially all configuration packages, need to be licensed the same as the upstream package they configure, as derivative works.

For the record, the fact that sometimes code is copyright individuals and sometimes copyright MIT is intentional -- things by paid (IS&T) staff are owned by MIT, but things by (SIPB) volunteers are owned by themselves. It's possible we should consider assigning the copyright for everything to MIT, but there hasn't yet been a compelling reason.
