[03:02:13 CDT(-0500)] <Webby> Hi, i found the fluid project idea for making an HTML5 image editor very interesting and i had a few questions regarding the same.

[10:09:24 CDT(-0500)] <RUPO> greggy: sir when should i send my proposal?

[10:11:48 CDT(-0500)] <greggy> RUPO, take your time and do a good job. Proposals should be submitted during the Student application period starting March 26 to April 6

[10:12:20 CDT(-0500)] <RUPO> Ok ,thank you sir

[11:27:48 CDT(-0500)] <rahulr92> Hi

[11:28:02 CDT(-0500)] <rahulr92> I am Rahul. I am interested in applying to Fluid for GSoC 2012. I am particularly interested in the idea of 'non-visual/accessible programming'. Can I please have some leads on how this project can be implemented (some references and resources ).

[11:31:50 CDT(-0500)] <rahulr92> Hi. Can someone please guide me.

[11:39:19 CDT(-0500)] <greggy> Bosmon: ^ michelle is not around at the moment

[11:39:38 CDT(-0500)] <greggy> nvm seems he left the room

[12:28:29 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> michelled, alexn1 cindyli: FYI, I tried adding .mp4 and .webm videos to an oer: both formats result in a download link instead of an embedded video (both for upload and hyperlink)

[12:29:05 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> anastasiac: good to know - I figured we'd have some work to do to integrate the video player

[12:34:24 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> cindyli, I'm finished with that video testing now, so whenever you're available to pair up to have a look at alt text issue, let me know

[12:34:53 CDT(-0500)] <cindyli> sure, anastasiac.

[13:42:27 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> michelled, fyi, cindyli and I think we've found where and how to add the alt text to images, so when we have the dev environment, we'll be ready to test

[13:42:56 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> perfect (smile)

[13:42:58 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> should we start looking into integrating learner options into the per commons interface while we're waiting?

[13:43:05 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> yes

[13:43:07 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> s/per/oer

[13:43:12 CDT(-0500)] <anastasiac> thanks

[13:43:17 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> thank you

[14:00:23 CDT(-0500)] <am33sh> hello everyone

[14:02:26 CDT(-0500)] <am33sh> bosmon, yura : i have now configured the UIEnhancer to a particular div

[14:02:45 CDT(-0500)] <am33sh> bosmon, yura : now i dont need to use iframe

[14:04:08 CDT(-0500)] <am33sh> bosmon, yura : it was done simply by changing container : from body to any div in which UIoptions was placed

[14:04:35 CDT(-0500)] <am33sh> bosmon : that documentation did helped me, thanks

[14:14:35 CDT(-0500)] <am33sh> yura : i was thinking of making some GUI mockup, I have found a wesite ( where I can create some GUI mockup

[14:15:21 CDT(-0500)] <yura> am33sh: yes , definitely, if you proceed with the markup , make sure you include that stuff into your proposal

[14:15:56 CDT(-0500)] <am33sh> yura : okay sir

[14:16:31 CDT(-0500)] <am33sh> yura : can you tell me the things to be included in proposal

[14:18:14 CDT(-0500)] <am33sh> yura : as I could not find any specific format at ""

[14:20:05 CDT(-0500)] <am33sh> yura : can you send me the link of proporal format

[14:22:14 CDT(-0500)] <yura> am33sh: i dont think we have any set one really, but i was just googling around for some examples

[14:22:24 CDT(-0500)] <yura> maybe these might help:

[14:22:29 CDT(-0500)] <yura>

[14:23:23 CDT(-0500)] <am33sh> yura : i have also seen some formats of privious selected students

[14:24:12 CDT(-0500)] <am33sh> yura : can i take the main things from them like timeline, basic personel details

[14:25:07 CDT(-0500)] <am33sh> yura : is it okay or will it be called copying of format

[14:29:32 CDT(-0500)] <yura> am33sh: you can certainly draw on main ideas from the proposals, you should be covering the timeline, describing the proposed project in detail. Try to think of what value does it add to the community and the users of the compoent, etc

[14:31:18 CDT(-0500)] <am33sh> yura : okay sir

[14:32:27 CDT(-0500)] <am33sh> yura : i will send you the proposal when made... before uploading it to the gsoc site

[14:45:53 CDT(-0500)] <vaibhav_> hello! I am a student from India. I want to work on "Highly customizable and accessible web based ePub reader". what should be my starting point?

[14:47:23 CDT(-0500)] <greggy> yura: ^

[14:47:24 CDT(-0500)] <greggy> {color}

[14:48:13 CDT(-0500)] <yura> vaibhav_: hi, I was answering similar questions to another applicant am33sh. Feel free to take a look at our public logs, i m sure you ll find a lot of information there:

[14:48:56 CDT(-0500)] <vaibhav_> sure thanks

[14:56:47 CDT(-0500)] <codercube> hello, I am interested in the idea "HTML5 Image Editor" for the fluid project, I have about 2 year experience of working in web-development, but I can't show my projects, cause of corporate limitations. Is there a way to prove my skills? Maybe you have open bugs in similar projects?

[14:57:27 CDT(-0500)] <yura> JonathanD: ^

[14:58:58 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> yura: You mean jhung

[14:59:06 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> (smile)

[14:59:42 CDT(-0500)] <yura> woops

[14:59:45 CDT(-0500)] <yura> yes

[15:09:55 CDT(-0500)] <vaibhav_> yura: what kind of accessibility options are we looking at? should the reader adhere to some standards or just the basic options like adjusting font-size and typeface?

[15:17:49 CDT(-0500)] <jhung> codercube: hi

[15:17:57 CDT(-0500)] <codercube> hi

[15:18:16 CDT(-0500)] <yura> vaibhav_: there are several things, ui options focuses on user preferences and customization (font, contast, line spacing etc) , where the reader itself must be accessible e.g. with keyboard and screen readers

[15:18:38 CDT(-0500)] <jhung> I am advising on the HTML 5 image editor project, but not the official "mentor". I can help where I can.

[15:19:16 CDT(-0500)] <codercube> jhung do you know who can answer my question?

[15:19:45 CDT(-0500)] <jhung> codercube: yes. Can you send an email to with your questions.

[15:20:12 CDT(-0500)] <codercube> jhung thank you!

[15:20:32 CDT(-0500)] <jhung> no problem.

[16:23:43 CDT(-0500)] <vaibhav_> Yura: I downloaded fluid infusion 1.4 but infusionAll.js file is not present.will I have to include all the files separately?
