Help with writing applications/system services
- Several of the core-apps (http://github.com/openwebos/core-apps) doesn't scale nicely on non-touchpad devices. They have to be eithe rewritten from scratch with enyo2 or being modified to support different screen sizes.
- Calendar app is going to be rewritten (https://github.com/webOS-ports/org.webosports.app.calendar)
- Preware2 needs help with polishing and getting stable
- Need to setup feeds for webOS ports
- We need to write our own phone application from scratch (either with enyo2 or as native qt5 application)
- We don't have any synergy providers. We need to write them from scratch:
- CalDAV/CardDAV is the most required one as it enables us to sync with mostly all the different sources like google, owncloud, ...
Looking for System / Qt Programmers
Wiki / Documentation / Community
- We need a better organization with the wiki to group same information together.
