Sugar Draft Packaging Guidelines

These guidelines are for packaging Sugar activities. Sugar is the core of the OLPC Human Interface.


Macros

Sugar looks for its activities in two fixed locations, which are defined in sugar-toolkit with rpm macros:

Architecture Independent (noarch):

%define sugaractivitydir /usr/share/sugar/activities/

Architecture Dependent:

%define sugarlibdir %{_libdir}/sugar/activities

Necessary BuildRequires

All Sugar Activities use setup.py, which is dependant upon sugar-toolkit. Accordingly, all activities need to:

BuildRequires: sugar-toolkit

Naming

All activities MUST be named sugar-<activity name>.

Architecture-specific Activities

All activities containing compiled code (thus, architecture-specific) must be built in the %build section. Any architecture-specific bits must either go in %{_bindir} %{_libdir} or %{sugarlibdir} as appropriate.

Runtime Dependencies

All runtime dependency information MUST be manually added. There is no build time detection for Sugar activities.

%description
The Journal activity provides an intuitive interface for viewing projects and
files saved by the XO user. Activities that the user has stopped will show in
the journal view with a timer showing how long ago they were stopped.
