Thanks, the patch from this ticket applied just fine. Few of quick observations/questions:
- We should think how Sugar handles downloaded patches a little better ;-) Downloads to Journal fine, but then it will only want to open in Etoys so no easy way to get the patch out of Journal to apply. In the end I copy and pasted from the raw text version of the patch with Browse on the ticket, then went to Terminal and created a new patch file with vi and pasted, saved, patched. Hmmm, I wonder if all we would need to close this dog food gap is a simple Patch activity that can resume and apply .patch files from the Journal.
- Downloaded a load more activities to try and trigger the spiral, and notices another three svg icons that don't render correctly in the latest F13 builds. Scratch, Paint, and Kandid. I'll fix them up and email the activity authors.
- I should go look through the code... But does the circle/spiral correctly adapt to screen resolutions? Are you testing in an 800x600 window? In my default 1024x768 looks like it could be a little more generous with the spacing/size as there's plenty of white space (will try 1200x900 later). Maybe this is another case where the SUGAR_SCALING value of 72 or 100 is limiting layout flexibility for different resolution screens.
