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.

Name/IRC nick: pherjung
Topic: Better tracking of bug report
Some details about the topic: I noticed some bug report written by the community on the forum are not always followed up by Jolla and only become tracked so once they mentioned in a community meeting.

Couldn’t a system like the translation one be set up? Some members of the community implicated in the community could act as bridge with Jolla. So various member could be in charge to verify bug reports, test them, get more information if necessary and ping Jolla to fill up a bug report on their own bug tracking system. Or even easier, these people could have access to Jolla’s bug tracking system.
Approx. time needed: ~15’
Substitute: I’ll be present.


Name/IRC nick: pherjung
Topic: What’s Jolla’s position on financial participation in the company?
Some details about the topic: Some users would be interested to invest in the company. See this topic. Another possibility would be for the community to fund features.
Approx. time needed: ~15’

  • Name/IRC nick: lolek
  • Topic: BlackBerry picture password license
  • Some details about the topic:
    on previous meeting I got informed that Jolla is unable to implement picture password like the one from BBOS10 because BlackBerry has patent on it. So my question is if maybe it would be possible to get this type of a lock as a paid option as part of Sailfish license? Then maybe it would be possible to just pay the fee to BB for this but at least a decent and a secure lock screen would be available.
    If it’s for me, this would be a key point to finally buy an SFOS license cause right now I see no point in doing so.
    BB is no longer manufacturing any phones not any other company for them from what I understand, so maybe it’s worth asking them?
  • Approx. time needed: 5min
