It is expected that you show up and present your topic, or name a substitute and make sure they attend in your absence. These IRC meetings are for real time participation and live discussions, otherwise you can post the topic on here and get responses that way.

We need you to be present to clarify details in the topic, and to ensure the discussion is leading to the answers you are looking for! If you do not participate or your question/topic isn’t clear enough it will be postponed. Also: always ask for more time than you anticipate your topic needs!

Please have your topics ready at least 3 days before the meeting so we can prepare good answers. Topics announced afterwards will be postponed to the next meeting.

  • Topic: VoWIFI support

  • Some details about the topic:
    Most (if not all) mobile networks which have implemented VoLTE do also support VoWIFI, which is a very usefuk feature especially in areas with poor indoor coverage (but good WiFi reception) or to avoid roaming costs. Implementation would probably be easy at least for the Xperia 10ii/iii, as these phones already support VoLTE and the voice channel only needs to be routed through the Wifi interface instead of the LTE connection (hopefully)

  • Approx. time needed:
    Maybe 5 min?

  • Substitute (optional):
    Unfortunately I may not make it to the meeting (I will try though!). Thanks!

  • Name/IRC nick: thigg
  • Topic: background services and unified push
  • Some details about the topic: e.g. native messaging apps are not very convenient to use on sfos because they do not run in the background. 1) are there any advances made towards supporting background services in sfos? Is this just a harbour problem or are we lacking infrastructure in the os, or are we lacking concepts or is it just not used very much? 2) Are there plans for something like a unified push client that could be used to wake up apps in background? (or maybe just send a notification for now?)
  • Approx. time needed: 10
  • Substitute (optional): discuss without me if i cant make it.

Here are some news and info for @flypig. This list is now automatically generated and the code is here.

Don’t worry if there are too many bugs, prioritize untracked bugs and I’ll automatically provide the bugs you couldn’t manage at the next meeting.


Regarding Browser says about:blank is 'not secure', it isn’t fixed, the warning triangle is still displayed in the address bar when you enter about:blank.

Oh, I misunderstood it. I change the category.

Thanks for the list as always @pherjung. I managed to get through all of the untracked bugs, but only the first few of the remainder I’m afraid… I was a little overwhelmed :wink: But, if you could please move the remaining ones on to the next as you suggest, that would be great.

Thanks for the great questions, and to everyone who participated in the meeting today. Really nice discussion as always.

In a diversion from our usual schedule, the next meeting will be in three weeks time (but then back to every two weeks after that).

09:14:36 flypig I wrote in 2022-10-13: I’d like to bring up again network switching, which has always been a pain specially for Android applications running under SFOS. I know people that for this reason just don’t use wifi on SFOS, at all. Are long-term solutions for this problem being worked on?

I am one of these people that has bascially abandonned wifi on my XA2 Plus:
Being connected to wifi and then leaving wifi range basically leaves me with no connectivity - as mobile data has been disabled.
It will return on a device restart, but i can’t be bothered to restart the phone every time i leave the house.
