Log: #sailfishos-meeting log

We had some interesting discussion at the meeting. Thanks to everyone who joined.


Please note that the statement in line 70 of the meeting minutes is not really backed by anything @piggz or I wrote:

07:11:11 <flypig> #info <Jolla> Chum is used for several “critical” Sailfish packages, such as Storeman.

If this is supposed to be the essence of my section 3 and / or the “Summary / TL;DR” section, these sections were heavily misunderstood, unfortunately. What these sections try to express is:

#info The SailfishOS-OBS is indispensable for SailfishOS:Chum, plus Storeman Installer and Storeman (thus also for OpenRepos) to work.
#info I.e., both (= all) community app stores absolutely depend on the SailfishOS-OBS.

Side note: SailfishOS:Chum is not “critical” for Storeman, even though it is also offered there.


Thanks; it’s good to be clear on this. So are you saying that Chum isn’t used for Storeman, or that Storeman isn’t a critical application?

Neither, really!

  • Although Storeman is offered at SailfishOS:Chum, SailfishOS:Chum is not Storeman’s principal distribution path. The SailfishOS-OBS is Storeman’s principal distribution path, see Show home:olf:harbour-storeman - SailfishOS Open Build Service
  • I do think that Storeman and the SailfishOS:Chum GUI application are the most “critical” community apps, because these two apps enable the average user to access the only two community app stores: OpenRepos and SailfishOS:Chum

Ah, okay, I think I understand my error now. I should have written:

Community OBS is used for several “critical” Sailfish packages, such as Storeman and the Chum GUI.
