I thought the current version of Odyssey could be correct by adding any corrections to the list

regards

You seem not to have any clue how fast webbrowsers change. There is not much left propably that not has to be changed now.


As far as I understand you don't know what it means to use to use aros every day

My personal opinion is the engine should be decoupled from the GUI and built as a library to allow for easier upgrades.   But don't quote me on that I'm not a developer. :D
If you take a look at the Odyssey code base, the actual GUI part is really quite tiny compared to everything else.

Anybody who manages to get to the point of running Webkit in "minibrowser" mode with a dumb window output on AROS should find it relatively trivial to add a basic native user interface.

Besides, it does not necessarily make the updates easier because regularly rewriting your "abstraction layer", which would sit between your GUI and Webkit, would not always take less time compared to just adapting your GUI code that might directly call certain Webkit functions otherwise.

The real problem is that Webkit is a giant project that is constantly changing and its developers do break things quite frequently. There is no easy solution. It simply takes effort to deal with that. There are no shortcuts  - except for using the work that somebody else is already doing maybe...

Okay so here's where we sit.

  • 2 Community members control the verification and payout system(mainly because we've had issues in the past of users not verifying bounties).
    Payout is twice a year or 10 fixes whichever comes first(Developer has the option of waiting).
  • Donations can be either one time or subscription with preference to single larger donations due to fees but all are appreciated.
  • Yearly nominations of the 2 community members(Assume nominate in December vote in January?).   Initial vote should be within the next month.
  • Papercut/trivial tag needs to be in the issue/bug tracker.
  • Outreach,  we need to reach outside of the Amiga/AROS community(maybe create a informational page?).
Thank you for the efforts on this! I appreciate it.

When FinalWriter is officially launched I will be donating part of the proceeds to the papercuts fund,   Maybe we can get it large enough to gain some attention. :)

So how do we setup a vote?

Should we start nominations on this thread?
Clearly it needs someone with knowledge and understanding of AROS so I'm out. I'm just a donator.

So, for someone who appears to have good motivation to getting this going - terminills, would you accept my nomination for you?

As for a second, I would think magorium would keep everyone grounded, if he's willing?

Retired.. and working harder than ever

Probably not I feel my time is better spent elsewhere.   But we'll see.
