Subject Re: FOSDEM 2018: Open Document Editors DevRoom
Date Sun, 19 Nov 2017 14:01:18 GMT
I would like to have at least one devroom talk. I have 2 Ideas.
1) introducing new Damjans Connector.
As I understand it, damjan will not be on FOSDEM. I would like to present the new interface
and the architectural changes. Maybe also highlight some issues Damjan had.
It would be cool if I get some review help from Damjan for that.
2) Our Mac building issue.
I would like to present the wired behaviour we had with the Mac builds. However for that I
need to isolate the issue somehow.
And make some presentation on the differences of Mac builds.

For the 2nd idea I need some help, since I am not really sure if I am able to isolate the

I am open for additional ideas.

All the best
