openSUSE:2011 Bretzn Meeting

Jump to: navigation, search

This page is about an openSUSE Bretzn Sprint/meeting/hackfest

Date: 21-23 January 2011 Location: Nuremberg

Topic: The goal of this meeting is to work on an integration of on AppStore into openSUSE. The idea is to have a nice native application to browser and install applications. It should support, descriptions, screenshots, ratings, comments and more social features. The Bretzn project has all the peaces in place so an integration in openSUSE should be really easy.


  • Protocol: Open Collaboration Services
  • client library: Attica or libopengdesktop
  • server library: lib_ocs.php
  • AppStore Client: Port of KDE GHNS or the MeeGo Installer or a GTK based frontend

Goal: After this meeting we should have a name for the AppStore Client, an icon, a server implementation and a working client implementation.

This solution should be integrated with the next openSUSE release and could be a proof of concept for the upcoming Cross-distro Meeting on Application Installer.
