GNOME Software hackfest

London, 19th-23rd February 2018 (proposed)

Primary contact: laney

Let's all bring our pain points and wishlists for future development and work out how we're going to do them.

Downstreams (Endless, Canonical, others?) might want to work on whether & how their local changes can be accommodated upstream.

Agenda, goals

(!) <at least 5 *concrete* goals>

  • Make GNOME Software simpler, removing code
  • Redesign the flatpak support to better support Endless
  • What we want to achieve

  • Date2: plan work
  • Date3-4: do work
