My name is Jussi Kukkonen and I'm going to work on GeoClue for maemo (1)
during the summer. My plan is to keep the Maemo-specific stuff on
maemo.org, but generic geoclue improvements should naturally live in a
generic geoclue code repository. I understood that bergie discussed the
SCM issue with you earlier and that you agreed that a new hosting would
be a good idea.
I've been meaning to contact you earlier, but I've waited for these
'infrastructure issues' to clear up: I contacted freedesktop.org a month
and a half ago about hosting some services for the geoclue project.
Unfortunately things only started moving yesterday, but now we have a
wiki, a mailing list and soon SCM at freedesktop.org.
I suggest we continue discussion on the mailing list
geoclue at lists.freedesktop.org (you can join at
The first issue that I'd like to solve is the SCM: I asked for SVN, as
that's what you have running at the moment on foinse-project. This is
what the freedesktop.org admin had to say about it(2):
> we don't usually provide subversion, though: is either git
> (preferable), or cvs (fallback) suitable for your needs?
Can you comment on this? I can do the actual uploading if we decide
changing SCM systems is worth it.
I'm saving the rest of my question for now :)
(sorry for the formatting -- maemo.org changed their wiki engine, and
I haven't updated the page yet)
