@chemist i'm not a maemo people, but as i remember you had a good idea of app in the past.

@cemoi71 I will not participate, because reasons. But thanks anyway!

chemist ( 2016-11-08 14:35:05 +0300 )edit

??? i think i don't understand something....It is not possible to put this ap in the app list?
The app list here is a wishlist from community? or a list that each candidate suggest, an will work on it?

@cemoi71 Hi! You can edit the wiki yourself, no need to login:)

eekkelund ( 2016-11-08 17:23:00 +0300 )edit

Ah now I understand! What eekkelund said + TJC is already a pretty good wishlist itself.

I added Sailfinder to the coding competition via the mailing list (several weeks ago) but it's not official accepted? My e-mail waited for the moderators approval.

@Dylan Van Assche Thanks for your entry but it haven't come to the mailing list.. Are you sure that you have subscribedto mailing list?

Could you please try again to subscribe to the mailing list and then send your entry vial email?:) If it does not work, send me/here a message :)

eekkelund ( 2016-12-21 00:46:46 +0300 )edit

I resend it but it still waits for a moderator to approve. Maybe I need an other way to send it to you? I don't have a Maemo account...

Dylan Van Assche ( 2016-12-26 11:55:25 +0300 )edit

Hmm weird.. Okay, if you don't want to create account, you could send your entry here and I will forward it to mailing list & add to wiki page. :)

eekkelund ( 2016-12-29 14:48:06 +0300 )edit

Oh why not, I made an account on Maemo, I will post it there :)

seems to be an interesting tool.
Does the dev plane an evolution, more features for this app until the end of the contest?

Will there be an new coding competition this or next year?

BonoNL ( 2019-09-28 21:59:43 +0300 )edit

Everything is possible in this infinite world :)

Provided we get enough interest I'd say it is feasible to arrange.

juiceme ( 2019-09-30 09:26:04 +0300 )edit

Let's show some love in this thread then!
