Usul, thanks for coordinating the releases. Having regular releases is definitely a good idea; telling people to use SVN looks a bit unprofessional.

I also agree about cleaning up trac; I saw that you have already started. BTW, I did not want to spoil your work by re-opening two tickets; it's just that these issues were really not fixed.

About trac & release planning: trac allows to assign arbitrary key words to tickets; that might be helpful for planning (e.g. to separate short-term and long term ideas)..

Personaly I see some problems, if we want to create a roadmap (getting release xyz means fixing tasks 1..2.3...n) as it might confuse users, when 20+ items come up. And we can't share any status about the progress and dependencies :/


I don't think that would be a problem. Users don't have to look at the full list of tickets for a release; that's just for us :-). And trac has a really nifty "roadmap" that shows an overview of tickets per release: http://trac.navit-project.org/roadmap

As a Debian user I'd like to help making .deb packages for debian and debian-like OS like Ubuntu or Mint (iirc).
But I never did this before so I need to get familiar with the process.


There is already an official Debian package of navit ( http://packages.debian.org/sid/navit ). We could probably re-use most of the Debian-specific files, no need to reinvent the wheel :-).

Thanks for your help :) user:pini is the offical debian packager for navit. So I guess even if he is very busy, he would like to help finding your way in the packaging jungle ;)

In the past weeks we had some people who point out that they like to use navit on car PCs. Would be great to collect all the requirements and userstorys for that. Concerning a OSD, he is free to create one for XXL screens. Maybe you can help him :P But optimizing osd layouts is another story... ;)

@sleske: right, the wheel is still round, but who makes them roll so easy? I don't know who and how to put packages into the debian repository - or do they get automatically into sid and jessie repository? Maybe there is no need to do anything acitve? I'l try to find out.

The OSD is one of my personal speciality. A non functional OSD makes the whole programm useless - in my opinion. Only drivers who drive by speech orders won't take care of the OSD. As soon as my OSD in my CarPC works i a useable way - you'll get the whole config and the story :-)
