This is an update to my previous blog post which dealt with the introduction to the GSoC project which I’ll be working this summer - Preferences GUI Refactoring. It’s been two weeks since the first post went live, so here’s the report for the weeks after that. This being the Community Bonding period, I pretty much did what the title says. Got to know about fellow GSoCers, they really are friendly and helpful.
I’m Anirudh Murali (Trac: anirudh; IRC: anirudhm), from the southern region of India. I thank Haiku for selecting me as one of Google Summer of Code 2017 student. I’ll be working on the idea: “Preferences GUI Refactoring” this summer along with my mentors: waddlesplash and Sean Healy.
As of now, if one has to access any Preferences, a right click on the Deskbar, and accessing it with the submenu of Preferences, and still people who are new to Haiku end up selecting the wrong preferences option, atleast it happened for me.
