7130262Phonon: Write some backend QA tests2 daysTrever Fischer" Its easy to test libphonon. Write a dummy backend and throw it all into some unit tests. Its a lot harder to test pgst or pvlc since they aren't exactly suitably designed for unit testing. We would like to have a basic checklist of test situations to run through before a release to make sure all the kinks are found and regressions don't occur. Examples:<br /><ul><li>Open dragon, play a .wav, close dragon.</li><li>Open dragon, play a .wav, play the same .wav again, close dragon.</li><li>Open dragon, queue up three .avis, play them, close dragon.</li><li>Play a DVD and navigate the menus to enable subtitles</li></ul>Sounds very tedious to try and cover all the bases, but doing so can help teach a *lot* about multimedia software development.<br />Expected results: Have a nice list of things to test that you can't just stuff in a bunch of unit tests. At least 5 or so scripts produced per student, with multiple students creating different lists independently.<br />Prerequisites: Patience, a careful eye, and a willingness to learn the basics of the libphonon API. Maybe some familiarity with basic combinatorics.<br /> Coordination in #kde-multimedia with tdfischer as mentor and the other phonon developers, apachelogger and bambee."

7130263Pairs Touch-Friendly Interface7 daysAleix Pol"Right now Pairs is working great on the desktop but we want to look further and make it work on touch devices. We need an interface written in QtQuick that doesn't make use of the menus, toolbars and status bar and puts everything in a canvas, in a pretty way. Also it shouldn't have the new game dialog, this should be on the canvas as well.<br />Expected results: Make it possible to have an interface to be ported to Pairs, that can be used easily on a touch device, like a tablet.<br />Prerequisites: QtQuick, UI Design"
17
7130266Port Desktop Switching OSD to QtQuick1 dayMartin Gräßlin"The Desktop Switching On-Screen-Display is implemented with the GraphicsView framework.

7134263KGpg: evaluate the benefits of qgpgme7 daysRolf Eike Beer<p>KGpg currently interacts with GnuPG by calling the binary and parsing the output. A library for GnuPG use exists, which even has a Qt-style wrapped version: qgpgme. The interaction of KGpg with the GnuPG backend is put into transaction classes, which handle one command (like encrypting a text or signing a key) per class.</p>
<p>The object of this task is to create a new version of one of the existing transaction that uses the library interface instead of interacting with the GnuPG CLI. This includes modifying the CMakeLists.txt to properly link against qgpgme.</p>

<p><span style="font-size: small;">Mula is a Multi Language Dictionary with online, offline dictionary and text-to-speech support design in mind.</span><span style="font-size: small;"> The projects needs unit tests for quality assurance. It will be very important because it is fresh module, and we need to start to establish a proper unit testing code for this.</span></p>
</div>
<p><span style="font-size: small;">No real Prerequisites, but QtTest is an advantage. If you can ping me ("djszapi") on IRC (freenode), that helps a lot with the task. I hope you can do that. :)</span></p>

7191218Extend Marble's Social Network Features5 daysEarthwings, Torsten Rahn<p>Marble is a Virtual Globe and World Atlas. It's available on desktop system (Linux, Windows, Mac) and some mobile devices (Nokia N900, soon Nokia N9/N950). On top of the map, different data - weather, wikipedia articles, earthquakes and much more - can be shown with the help of Online Services. On such service is OpenDesktop, which Marble uses to show people's home location on the map. The current OpenDesktop integration in Marble works well, but needs more features to become really useful. And that's where you come in: Help extending Marble's OpenDesktop plugin to allow users to login with their OpenDesktop account and update their own location.</p>
<p>In the current state Marble displays only public information (the location of users and some more information like their avatar, nickname etc). Much more information and actions are available to logged in users. The first thing to implement in this task therefore is to extend the existing configuration dialog to show a login form that can be used to set the users account name and password for OpenDesktop. Additionally there should be a way to verify that the entered credentials are correct.</p>
<p>Assuming the user has logged in using his OpenDesktop account data, allow him to update his location based on the current location (given by the GPS coordinates already available in Marble). To do that, a new UI element has to be added to the map that reflects the user himself (or rather his OpenDesktop account) which can be used for interaction.</p>
<p>When the task is finished, it's possible to</p>
<ul>
<li>open the configuration settings of the OpenDesktop plugin and enter username and password</li>
<li>test the login and be informed of a successful or failed login</li>
<li>see a new element on top of the map that reflects the OpenDesktop user account, showing the avatar and nickname.</li>
<li>The new element has a button or similar that can be used to send the current GPS location as the new location to OpenDesktop (similar to a check-in in Google Latitude)</li>
</ul>
<p>The communication with OpenDesktop is handled using the OCS protocol, available at <a href="http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Specifications/open-collaboration-services">http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Specifications/open-collaboration-services</a></p>

7232317Rekonq : Correctly hide the "set favorite" widget" when a favorite is removed.5 daysYoann Laissus<p>When a user try to modify a favorite, a widget appear to select the page.</p>
<p>Then, if the user delete the favorite, the widget is still displayed. The goal of this task is to avoid that.</p>

7233208Create a feature matrix for Marble's KML support5 daysEarthwings, Torsten Rahn<p>There is a specification of Google's KML format available here:</p>
<p>http://code.google.com/intl/de-DE/apis/kml/documentation/</p>
<p>Marble provides partial support for KML. It can already handle many of the tags that are available in this spec.</p>
<p>The idea behind this task is to check what kind of support for each tag is available already:</p>
<ul>
<li>Create a spreadsheet which contains all tags grouped in a sensible way.</li>
<li>Check whether Marble has support for each tag. You can check this by looking through the source code. One column in the spreadsheet should indicate the availabilty of the support</li>
<li>Rate the support by adding another column that indicates the level of support (e.g. by testing it or by looking at the source code)</li>
<li>Put special observations into a comment column.</li>
</ul>
<p>Expected outcome:</p>
<p>A spreadsheet (using OpenOffice Calc) which gives an overview over Marble's KML support.</p>

7237213Enhance Marble's GeoPainter to create "real" circles3 daysTorsten Rahn<p>This task requires some sound knowledge of analytic geometry:</p>
<p>Marble provides a class which works like QPainter, just that it works in geodetic coordinates: GeoPainter. The GeoPainter has a method GeoPainter::drawEllipse which allows to draw ellipses with the axis measured in degree longitude and latitude. This doesn't result in "real" physical ellipses but only in ellipses on a cartesian lat-lon map. This task is about enhancing GeoPainter in a way so that it can also draw "real" circles or even better: ellipses onto the globe (where the axis get specified in meter).</p>

7238245Add MPRIS2 remote control interface support to JuK (KDE music player)5 days and 20 hoursMichael Pyne<p>JuK (the KDE music tag editor/player) does not support the current standard specification for remote control and playback status (called MPRIS [1]). This task would add support for that standard to JuK.</p>
<p>JuK already supports a non-standard interface for applications to perform a similar task, so this shouldn't be too difficult to add. However, it would still involve researching and implementing the specification itself. The specification takes advantage of a technology called DBus (already supported by JuK) which allows programs to communicate with each other. In essence, you would be having JuK talk on the DBus in a standard fashion, which would allow other programs to control JuK music playback, or find out what music JuK is playing.</p>
<p>I will mentor the project, but will be unavailable from 23 Dec until approx. 31 Dec due to being in the middle of nowhere. When I am mentoring I would generally be available from 1800-2300 U.S. EST (GMT-0500).</p>
<p>The time estimate assumes there is not great difficulty setting up and building JuK. JuK's source is currently maintained out of the KDE *Subversion* module called "kdemultimedia".</p>
<p>JuK uses a program called CMake for source code compiling. When the CMake build system is setup you can build JuK from its own build directory without having to build all of kdemultimedia.</p>
<p>You will need to have a kdelibs dev environment already.</p>
<p>If Subversion access is problematic, you can work off the latest kdemultimedia source code release, or even import that source into a git repository and then use git patches from there.</p>

<p>Good luck and thanks for the help!</p>
