The idea is provide new (incoming) developers with a grafic tool that should be helpful during the merge operation.
I called it HYM (but suggestions are welcome!) and got a first approach using balsamiq. I would like to proceed following these steps:
- Show mockup and get feedbacks (in particular I would know if there were actions to remove/add/change at gui that developers usally do during merge)
- Apply feedbacks and create project in LP (with the maintainers group, all architects are welcome)
- Start modelling application using UML (specify, construct and document the artifacts)
- Call for feedbacks again about structure and choose which technologies will be used to deploy/develop application.
- Start development.
I don’t know if a tool like this one could be helpful to improve the development of Ubuntu. Considering I would like to know your thoughts about, I’m going to show you the mockup (step 1). Click on the image below (direct link) and please leave a feedback/suggestion:
Note that image could change in the next days.
