I've put a repository up on GitHub this evening that will contain the changes/improvements we make to the existing E17 code base. You can find it here -> https://github.com/JeffHoogland/moksha

We can use this GitHub page to file/track bugs the current E17 base has so we can get this really tuned to perfection. This way we can have a central repository for all the changes/improvements we make to E17 as opposed to having them simply stored in series of patches that get applied to Enlightenment source code.

 

As for the name, Moksha, like Bodhi, is a Sanskrit word that means "emancipation or liberation". Seemed fitting since this will be taking more work onto ourselves to ensure we have a quality product as opposed to waiting for other people to fix our issues.

 

I will be introducing a "moksha" package into the Bodhi 3 repos shortly that will eventually replace the "e17" package we have now. The goal will be to have this be the default desktop for Bodhi as we work towards our 3.1.0 release at the end of the summer. 





A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

On the eventual TODO list is integrating any modules that work with E17 into the core of Moksha.

Quick question: Enlightenment/Moksha is totally unrelated with EFL develop, isn't it?

Do we continue to have latest EFL libraries?

Will we still be hosting the e19 updates for a while? Or are they on ubuntu's repos??

I currently am on e19 and don't know when I'll be able to get around to e17 due to key/mouse bindings, window remembers and the like.

I'll be writing a short blog post on the main Bodhi site answering questions later today, I'll hit the question in the last two posts here then. If anyone else wants to know specifics of what we have planned let me know :)

This will probably we waaaay down the TODO list, but I would like to see the ability to piggy-back (or perform multiple, sequential) actions in single key, mouse, acpi, edge bindings. I think that would be a very nice addition to Moksha. (coming from someone who uses tons of bindings for day-to-day stuff)

I wished I had enough knowledge of the C language to help you. Unfortunately I don't. So I can only wish you much succes in this project an looking forward to the first release.
