For improving the PythonCd, we need some experienced helpers and testers, so if you are interested, please join in here! If you know how to make debian packages (or where to find them), provide some hints where to get the stuff not yet installed.
Current package list: PythonCdRawPackageList
Graphics and Fun stuff
- images and logos
pythonic background image, see http://www.ibiblio.org/obp/pyBiblio/images/ - snake.png - thanks to Paul Carduner
- needs to get 1024x768, so that snake is aligned top right (bsetbg command cant align top right)
lilo boot image - maybe derived from http://www.ibiblio.org/obp/py4fun/ ?
- logo for top left of local moinmoin wiki
that "introducing python" mpeg (250MB) is much too big to fit on the PythonCd (on a DVD, it would fit, of course - does anybody have a smaller version with acceptable quality? target should be 25..100MB.
Hosting / Mirrors for ISO image distribution
We need some server to distribute this, anybody sponsoring space and bandwidth? Possibilities:
Uni Erlangen - Currently this is the primary site, see PythonCdDownload.
- starship.python.net (acceptable use?)
- python.org ("when it is ready").
- Also, we could create a bittorrent file for the ISO image to ease server bandwidth. And find some CD pressing service that lets people purchase a copy of the CD by mail for only a few bucks.
- for bittorrent we need a tracker AFAIK, starship.python.net maybe?
- then, the people taking part in development could keep just their torrent client running
ToDo: maybe somebody else could contact some University in the US/Canada? Just check if it is possible to mirror the ISO there.
Unsorted / Todo from EducationalCd
- requires a zope geek or it rather won't be done
Applications (written in Python)
PyGE (maybe rather wait until it is easier to handle)
There are some ready to go apps like
- library automation
- Plone based school setup
that may show something good out of the box. -- MikeRovner 2004-04-09 18:59:28
TODO: move to PythonCdPackages after installing on CD master (see comment at bottom of that page)
- Mail tinuviel at sparcs.kaist.ac.kr if you have any questions.
