Roadmap for MLS ? Open Sourcing MLS ?

Postby atticusewig » Fri Jan 19, 2007 10:38 am

I've noticed that for a lot of Open-Source Projects,
the developers have released a roadmap of the
goals of features and fixes that are being worked
on, and approximate dates to reach these goals.

Any chance that such a roadmap for MLS or other
projects will make it onto ldstech.org ?

Also, is there any truth to the rumor that MLS
will be open-sourced either fully or partially -
i.e. the transmission or encryption parts being
left obscured, but everything else opened up ?

If open-sourced, perhaps major point versions
could be worked on by the main development
for the major fixes or feature-adds, while the
community produces minor point releases that
include fixes for things that aren't deemed so
critical by the Utah team. Of course, a roadmap
could help prevent overlap, and since everything
is open-source, any improvements made by the
community minor point revisions could be rolled
into the major point revisions that would be sent
to the units.

Thanks,
Atticus Ewig

I can't promise which projects will have road maps but that is our intent. I'll certainly talk with the MLS team about posting their roadmap.

I think that it is a rumor and not something currently being discussed.

Open source MLS would be awesome.

My bishopric would like a visual layout of the ward, currently they put it on a white board, but they have expressed that it would be nice if we could have the computer print out the visual (bird's-eye view) of the ward. You could also click on the house and it would jump you to that person’s household record. (When on the computer)

This is a feature I could add if MLS was open ;)

Since the rest of this thread dealt with mapping the ward members to a google or yahoo map, I moved it over to the suggestions page. [thread="179"]Which you can access here.[/thread]

Thanks to Atticus for pointing this out.
