Étoilé

Summary

Étoilé is a desktop environment built on top of GNUstep. The goal of this feature is to have Étoilé packaged, and possibly also provide a spin based on it.

Owner

Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 16
  • Last updated: (DATE)
  • Percentage of completion: 0%


Detailed Description

Benefit to Fedora

This brings new use to the GNUStep files newly packaged to Fedora 14. This also would deliver a nice appearance upon a firm backend, which would act as further incentive to create GNUStep compliant applications.

Scope

The main GNUstep building blocks have already been packaged. Étoilé depends on LLVM as well, and Fedora currently has the latest stable LLVM version shipping with each release.

How To Test

Chose a particular version of Étoilé is chosen to be packaged; this can be rolling svn for now since stability won't be a problem till incorporation into a Fedora release becomes feasible. Firstly, packages of Étoilé need to be built and submitted to koji. From there admittance into a Fedora release and/or creation of a Fedora spin based on Étoilé, Window Manager, and GNUStep.

User Experience

This will be a benefit to the U.E. It creates a new "environment" for applications to be viewed. If a spin is released then the U.E. will be significantly changed.

Dependencies

GNUStep, C/gcc, & Window Manager are its prime dependencies. libpng, zlib, OniGuruma 5.0 or higher, D-Bus 1.0 or higher, HAL, startup-notification, Xcursor, XScreenSaver, LLVM, Lemon, GMP, PostgreSQL 8.3 or higher, libavcodec, libavformat, OSS, TagLib, & libmp4v2 are its minor dependencies.

Contingency Plan

None necessary. If the feature is complete then it can be advertised in comps.xml; if not then we'll continue adding the packages to the Fedora repositories and retarget to the next release.

Release Notes

Étoilé is an user environment based upon GNUStep. It enhances the user's experience when using GNUStep-type applications. It provides artwork, application management, and additions to GNUStep.
