A new group of Seneca students is jumping into Open Source development! We've just selected (Mozilla-related) projects in the OSD600 course -- here's the list:
Student (IRC nick)
Convert password storage to SQLite
Radovan Nesic (radoye)
Plugin throttle - cut back a plugin's execution speed when it is not visible
Chris Andreacchi (Tryzo)
FUEL backport to Firefox 2
Samer Ziadeh (samer)
Improved temporary file management
Thunderbird picture preview/slideshow
Joseph Cresencia (FirestormZERO)
Universal Firefox on a USB key - Windows/Linux/Mac
Peter Evanoff (peterevanoff) Peter Chan (PeterC)
Over the next 10 weeks, these students will be taking these projects to a "0.3" (usable, maybe not perfectly polished) release. At the same time, David Humphrey is leading another group of OSD700/DPS911 students in taking their existing projects from 0.3 to 1.0 release.
These are my first two books: X Power Tools, a thorough guide to the X Window System (O'Reilly, ISBN 9780596101954) and Fedora Linux: A Complete Guide to Red Hat's Community Distro, a practical hands-on book on Fedora (O'Reilly, ISBN 9780596526825).
Fedora Linux is also available for online reading through Safari and in downloadable PDF format from oreilly.com
