Just run index.htm (see EclipseProcessFramework).

What we get is a very refreshing, non-bloated approach to the familiar roadmap (phases), core principles, roles, work products, disciplines and basic lifecycle; but with a refreshing infusion of agile approaches.



I visited the Eclipse Process Framework site , where IBM (Rational) and Scott W. Ambler (of AgileModeling fame) are releasing the OpenSource project:

"The Eclipse Process Framework (EPF) aims at producing a customizable software process enginering framework, with exemplary process content and tools, supporting a broad variety of project types and development styles.

"EPF 1.0 now released! It contains EPF Composer 1.0 and OpenUP 0.9."

So, is this OpenSource RUP, or what? From the Agile Business Conference 2006 website I gather Scott will be giving the following talk:

Introduction to the Open Unified Process (OpenUP) and the Eclipse Process Framework (EPF) Composer.

Desktop project tracking

So on this website, we are tracking projects; on each project, there are feature requests, tasks, bug fixing, etc.

According to agile best practices, I can place an estimate on each task when I create it, and can edit that estimate.

But obviously, on my desktop I need to track actual work applied to each task.

I also need to generate reports for customers who may not want to connect to the development site, for example, as part of the billing documentation.

Enter two open source powerhouses, Planner, the Gnome project management tool , and KArm ("Karma") , the KDE iCalendar format compatible task time tracker. The latter can import task hierarchies from Planner, and can keep track of work to be applied to each task. KArm will be called KTimeTracker in KDE 4.

How to make a favicon in Ubuntu

To make a favicon in Debian linux or Ubuntu (in my case):

  • Install the package xpm2wico with Synaptic or apt-get.
    An Xpm to Windows .ico converter
  • Using Gimp, Capture and shrink or create/edit a 16x16 graphic.
  • Save your image in X PixMap Image (xpm) format.
  • Convert from xpm to favicon name and format: "xpm2wico favicon.xpm favicon.ico".
  • Copy favicon.ico to convenient place, then add the following to a webpage:
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon" />
