Misc news

[Distribution] Some VPS providers are ok to propose YunoHost

[From kanhu / anmol]

I asked https://time4vps.eu if they can provide the image for YunoHost on there VPS. And there answer is this.

We are interested in your offer. Also, we can prepare an OS template, just please clarify how Time4VPS will be shown up on your website or in any installation steps?

Bram proposes that we can add their name in the install page https://yunohost.org/#/install_fr
Team seems to be okay about this, let’s go ?!

Kanhu / anmol fowarded the answer to time4vps that their service will be shown here https://yunohost.org/#/install and asked about the time it will take to prepare the image.

Other providers contacted :

[Apps integration] Actions and config panel

Presentation of

Proposal is to merge this ~now as an experimental feature and iterate with feedback

[App translations] New workflow for app translation (related to actions and config panel)

  • The current workflow is specific to translating the string in the manifest, and doesn’t allow the app maintainer to have control over the strings (except by going to weblate and finding the strings of his/her apps)

  • Translated strings are currently shiped via the app lists (they contain the manifest with strings from weblate)

  • Need to adapt the workflow for actions and config panel, which is not trivial

  • Proposal is to change the workflow by having a locales/ folder in apps

  • And sync trads with Weblate <-> Script/Bot <-> PRs on Git repo

Annex topic : open an issue to discuss “standard strings” to avoid have an almost-duplicate of 30 strings (ie “Choose an admin password”)

[Organization] Association setup

Can’t really recycle the old association
How do we organize to setup the new one ?

TODO : Check with FAIMaison, Aquilenet, Regard Citoyen, LDN who have “collegial” status, copy-paste something that looks interesting for us then iterate on a pad

Goal : create the association during the Brique Camp ?

Follow up from time4vps team:

we will have OS template for KVM servers ready in next week.

Also at the moment we will be rolling out standard VPS with OpenVZ 7 virtualization where Debian 9 will be an option and YunoHost template will also be added. Currently we are testing OpenVZ 7 and will make it available in next month.

I’m attaching Time4VPS SVG logo. Which can be used on YunoHost website.

We really liked YunoHost and we are looking forward for this cooperation.
