As some of you may know, Chandler  is a project to build a
PIM/Messaging/Calendaring application. After many years of development,
the development team has released Chandler, now at version 1.0.2.
Like Sugar, Chandler is a free software project, written in python and gtk
(on linux), devoted to enabling collaborative effort over the network.
Like Sugar, Chandler has had a few organizational hiccups along the way,
including some controversial publicity , and is now trying to reduce
its reliance on a single benefactor. The software designs created for
Chandler and Sugar to manage data, especially chronologically ordered
objects, have some striking similarities.
Both Chandler and Sugar are currently undergoing design/architecture
reviews. Chandler has the potential to provide Sugar with a collaborative
calendar, e-mail, addressbook, etc., none of which we currently have. The
Sugar developers have learned a great deal about collaborative network
systems, and about engaging a larger community of developers.
We have a lot to talk about, which is why THERE WILL BE A MEETING
PLACE: #sugar-meeting on irc.freenode.net
TIME: 2008 October 20, Monday
11 AM Pacific time (US)
2 PM Eastern time (US)
