Since there has been discussion about payment solutions on Harbour:

I don't know what the plans is but I think Jolla really should consider to adopt/partnering with bodega project instead of reinvent the wheel/continue with harbour.

I have read a bit about bodega lately and it sounds like something that Jolla should adopt. That way we can have not only one store but two (or more). One commercial and one community extras and even developers can start they'r own store if preffered.

Bodega server/clients is open source, its has support for apps, wallpaper etc. and there already exists clients. AFAIK they have(or plan?) to support many alternative payment methods. There is probadly people involved in this on jolla2gether who knows more about bodega....

Problem is KDE seems to now show much information about it, so not much buzz so far. But for me it sound like a intresting project. It already seems to have more functionality such as possibility to add other contents than app's. For example wallpaper, ringtones, books etc...

Btw. the first project using this is plasma active.

IMO, if stores start to pop up like mushrooms, we'll get chaos. Leave that to the Android world. :)

Having looked at the website and the video, I don't see how Bodega would help with commercial apps in any way either.

Also, being open source doesn't mean that it would be free to use. You'd have to pay for adjusting the system to your needs, testing it, fixing bugs, setting up the new infrastructure, migrating the content, and keep it running.

I know there is many stores. But this seems to be a platform API a more generic solution for not only one system or purpose.

I think its good with a generic solution and API same clients can be used for different purposes. For example if using KDE desktop, bookstore, media or in our case Jolla.

RIght now Harbour has no support for wallpaper, ringtones or payment. With this platform I think it swould be easier to implement all this in one server.
