I would like to open up Ubuntu Accomplishments to a little wider testing. Please note a few caveats:
- You need to be running Ubuntu 12.04 to test this.
- This is still a work in progress; there will be bugs.
Please follow the instructions at here for how to install. If you have questions feel free to ping me on IRC (I am
jono and I am around in
#ubuntu-community-team most of the time).
If you find a bug (and you probably will!), the bug will either be in software itself or one of the accomplishments. Please file bugs using the following links:
If you are unsure, just file bugs here.
There is a lot of work going on each day on this, so please be sure to update your branches each day (until we start releasing packages). You can do this with:
cd ubuntu-accomplishments-system bzr pull cd ubuntu-community-accomplishments bzr pull
Writing Accomplishments – Volunteers Needed!
There are only a few accomplishments available in the system right now. The goal here is that accomplishments should be about new experiences. I would like to avoid things such as “50 posts to a bug report” or “500 posts to a forum“; those could be achieved by repeating meaningless content to get the numbers up. I would rather focus on new experiences such as “I have become an Ubuntu Member“, or “I got my first uploaded accepted“.
Writing accomplishments just requires a little knowledge of launchpadlib and Python for Ubuntu Accomplishments, or you can write accomplishments for other projects where you can query a web service.
