Work done in week 17-21 June

1. Work Done :

  • Definitely yes, some problems with the installation of Installer but are already solved, many times I needed to read a lot before changing a line of the code of setup installer.

3. Work to be done in the next week :

  • Next week I need to prepare the new windows dialog for new version of installer.
  • I will update the wiki of the project to build the new setup.

Work done in week 22-28 June

1. Work Done:

  • The main job done this week was integrated a new window dialog "license" with its class license which will download a license file from somewhere (before the community organize the license terms) ie: "" of every restrictive package.

2. Problems Faced :

  • It was a little difficult to understand the flow of window dialog and some classes of installer, I am still learning all the process into installer.
  • There was a bit problem with the first compilation of new installer with the new class, but it was resolved, I couldn't implement the download process I need more time but I will do it next week with some extra work.

3. Work to be done in the next week:

  • For two next weeks I will plan something to download a license from a main central repository or individual projects and install into local directory ie: /etc/licenses. I will finish the new license class to automation of every restrictive package like gdal-ecw.
