PyCon sprint for Windows support

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

The Ubuntu One user community is great. In just a few short months, they’ve made some fantastic contributions extending Ubuntu One support to both KDE and Fedora.

One of the top requests we get is for wider support for users who work in a mixed platform environment (i.e., Ubuntu + Windows/Mac). While we offer the web browser option, we realize that the browser has definite limitations compared to the desktop.

This year at PyCon members of the Ubuntu One development team will focus on helping these users. The principal areas we’ll work on are porting to the Windows equivalent of D-bus, inotify, an installer, and a file manager plugin. If you’re heading to Atlanta in February, and this sounds interesting to you, please join our sprint.
