FOSSkriti Workshop

There will be a hackfest for SahanaPy at FOSSkriti on Feb 14th at 15:30 UTC

This will include a number of people - some will be skilled programmers, some may be new to this technology.

Ajay will be on site. Remote support will be provided by Fran, Massimo & Satya (Chamindra & Dominic [nursix] will also be around)


  • Introductory Presentation: Ajay Kumar [ajuonline]
  • Brief Skype Videocall on the tracks we will cover: Fran Boon [flavour]
  • Getting Started:
    • InstallationGuidelinesDeveloper
    • Using Transconnect for full Internet access (iitk network + bzr workaround):
      • Start up a terminal and run the following command
      • export LD_PRELOAD=~/.tconn/
      • Verify that it works with wget
      • Run all bzr commands from the same terminal. If you want to change terminals, repeat the export in the new one.
    • Using Bzr to work on the hackfest tree:
      • Note for Windows Users: DeveloperGuidelinesBzrWindows

      • hack
      • bzr add && bzr remove && bzr commit
