Celestia in Launchpad

Post #1by tech2000 » 30.07.2008, 14:09

Wouldn't it be cool to add Celestia in launchpad? That might result in some new users, or even better, some new coders. :D

edit "Why launchpad?"
edit "Tour launchpad"

cheers,

Sounds like a Sourceforge bis, no? I'm not sure hosting the source in several sites is wanted, double work to maintain the stuff etc...

Switching to a new project host isn't going to magically produce new users or developers for Celestia.

Moving to LaunchPad would require dropping Subversion and using the Bazaar version control system instead. I'm not sure that this is such a good idea. Are the client tools for Bazaar as well developed as the ones for SVN?

I am very frustrated with SourceForge's limited project management facilities. But, instead of LaunchPad, I'd rather use a project hosting service like Assembla that supports SVN and adds TRAC for project management.

Seems like Celestia is already added as a project to Launchpad. and funny enough, it has a bug report. Maybe it's a real bug.. Atleast take a look at it..

https://bugs.launchpad.net/celestia/+bug/259700
speedrate.patch
This is an actual bug in Celestia, not Ubuntu.

I found on my Slackware system, that I could crash Celestia by slowing time down to around 1e-12 (as an aside the top left time rate shows up peculair things too). It appears to be a maths overflow of type double.

I have submitted a small patch that fixes this - perhaps needs including in Ubuntu celestia package.

Full report and patch here:

https://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.p ... tid=121302

I have also attached the patch (made against Celestia 1.5.1 version).

Cheers, Anders
