I am involved in a student group on FIT of Czech Technical University in
Prague - in that group, we focus on 3D printing (RepRap).
3D printing needs a set of software on a control PC, such as some kind
of 3D modeller (we're currently using OpenSCAD), a slicer (to convert a
3D model to set of instructions for the printer, we're currently using
skeinforge and/or Slic3r) and printer interface software (currently
Installing this basic set of tools on a Linux machine is painful,
they aren't usually available in repositories, compiling them includes
compiling a bunch of dependencies and we usually end up using binary
executables from a tar or git cloning plenty of python scripts. Desktop
files and menu entries -> you don't get what you don't create
I am currently working on adding this software to Fedora:
But that is not where I want to stop. I'd like to create a Fedora RepRap
spin and make Fedora the best choice for 3D print guys.
At this point, I would like to gather people interested in 3D printing
and eventually create a 3D printing SIG.
Would anyone be interested and help me?
I noticed our package review process doesn't explicitly say "After you
make an update to the package, bump the 'Release' number and post a
new link each time." This is a popular convention, but it doesn't seem
to be formally documented.
Should this guidance be part of our instructions?

There was no 64 bit version of VMware player.
VirtualBox seems to work fine so far.
I would like to be the maintainer for the Enlightenment e17 for
Fedora. I am sending this e-mail to seek guidance and also a sponsor.
Getting e17 on Fedora i will need to build and install the following
eina - Core data structure library.
eet - Data
encode/decode and storage library.
evas - Canvas and scenegraph
ecore - Core mainloop, display abstraction and
embryo - Small Pawn based virtual machine and
edje - Abstract GUI layout and animation object library.
efreet - Standards handling for freedesktop.org standards.
Dbus wrapping and glue layer library.
eeze - Device abstraction
elementary - Elementary, the widget set...
Emotion, video and audio codec API...
ethumb - EThumb, thumbnail
eio - Eio, async I/O library...
Enlightenment 17 - The Window Manager and Desktop Shell.
build Terminology a new terminal emulator based on the efl libraries. I
currently build these on a local vm and have a repository setup on my
website. I tried to use Koji however seeing that the required packages
needed to build e17 are not available i cannot build using Koji, or i
don't know how to do the builds. I would need to work my list down in
the order i have because eet depends on eina. So eina would need to be
build first then it's dev packages installed. Then ecore depends on the
packages listed above it.
On my local machine i wrote a script that
would build a package, install rpm and dev rpm then move on to the next
package. I am not sure how i would do this with koji.
I look forward to
feedback on this.
