The road ahead - query

Postby shirish » Wed Jun 22, 2011 3:37 pm

Hi all,
I read the design forum and the prologue map discussion.

viewtopic.php?f=21&t=5369

I also saw/read the http://allacrost.sourceforge.net/wiki/i ... Team_Goals (which is hopelessly outdated. I have registered myself for the allacrost wiki as well. Got this small thingie after registering, maybe somebody would want to take look at that or not :-

Code: Select all

Set $wgShowExceptionDetails = true; at the bottom of LocalSettings.php to show detailed debugging information.


The above was after registeration was complete.

What I propose to do is to make a document titled roadmap for allacrost-0.1.1 or something to that effect which would have clear goals about the next incremental release .

I did see the small change in svn today as well as couple of days ago and am keeping a local log to also know what changed :-

Code: Select all

Worked on interior of Harrvah City Item Shop.


Didn't see any change though in the interface though.

Anyways, that's about it from my end, looking forward to comments.

If need be can be on IRC in couple of hours.

Thanks for volunteering to help out. The old wiki you registered at is dead. It won't allow you to edit anything, and I have no intentions of fixing it. Instead I setup a new wiki here:

http://www.allacrost.org/wiki


Which I still need to populate with some (but not all) of the content on the old wiki. I've already setup a roadmap page, so to speak, here:

http://www.allacrost.org/wiki/index.php/Goal_Progress


Its not complete, but it lists some of the most important things we need to finish for our next release.

Ok, cool. It would have been nice if the 'prologue release' could be defined as maybe allacrost-0.1.1 ? I am sure the 'prologue release' is a codename like Debian Wheezy/Debian 7 or Ubuntu Oneric/ Ubuntu 11.10. Perhaps its bikeshedding but really would be nice to know.

The other thing I see is everything is in red, does it mean that nothing from there has been completed or people forgot to update some of the things?

What I would suggest is those things be shaded where the initial focus is so users (like me) know where lot of attention is being given. By shading I mean instead of putting the blue bar for 50% make it so that people know that these are the areas where work is ongoing. If nothing else atleast people know where the team's energy is being used.

Side note:- If nothing else, it would stop guys trying to get some idea from reading commit messages (those who cannot read the code obviously)

Just my 2 paise. If people want something changed on the wiki please holler here would attempt/try out to do the same.
