Toward the beginning of the summer this year we interviewed Maxwell Barvian--the lead Maya developer at the time--and saw some plans for the app. However, we're looking for additional developers to pick up the project and get it fully-functional. Read along to see what's up.
Over the summer, Maxwell worked on Maya's UI and on various other projects for elementary. However, he's back in classes, working, and contributing to other elementary projects; right now he has little time to give to Maya. So! We need a(/some) developer(s) to adopt Maya.
We can help you get started; Maxwell is still around and we have other devs who are always willing to help you. We just need the manpower.
As of now, the following is completed:
However, the following needs done:
So basically, it needs to do stuff.
Developers should be familiar with Launchpad, Vala, Bazaar, and GTK (or willing to learn). C-knowledge helps, but isn't required if you're familiar with Vala. Cairo and Evolution Data Server knowledge is a huge plus.
Update: jaapz, a developer who's been working on Maya, commented:
i am already working on implementing events in the calendar view, what's really important now is that we have to plug maya into EDS, so it would be really cool if someone could help me with that/do that
so basically i really need someone for the backend :)
You can check out the Launchpad project here. To grab the code, simply run bzr branch lp:maya.
Any developers interested? Speak up in the comments and we'll help you get started!
