Description

The buddy icon in the neighborhood disappears while sharing activities. If you share an activity in older versions the neighborhood will show the buddy icon along with the activity icon, now it only shows the activity icon.

juanmanuel, can you give the exact versions of Dextrose and Sugar this happens with, please? (My Settings -> About my Computer; everything on the right side of "Build" and "Sugar")

If you have some time, verifying whether the same happens in OLPC OS 11.3.0 would be great.

Build: 55 Dextrose 3 International
Sugar: 0.94.1

Ok, i'll test it on 11.3.0.

I tested it in OLPC OS 11.3.0 and it works correctly.

A more explicit testcase (bullet list of steps) would be helpful :-)

Also, you may want to have a look at this...
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Release_notes/11.3.0#Sugar_collaboration

Esp the first bullet:

  • When the initiator of a shared activity leaves the activity, the icon of the shared activity will disappear from the neighborhood view of other participants (ticket #10674).

Is this the issue or is it somewhat different?

Thanks for taking the time for testing dx3 :-)

I tested with os883.img, and dx3g091.img; the results were identical.

  1. Install the image on XO-1, XO-2, XO-3.
  1. Connect all to a network (I tested with a salut connection).
  1. Start "Chat" on XO-1, and share it. "Chat" icon occurs in neighbourhood view of XO-1 (non-surrounding XO-2, non-surrounding XO-3). "Chat" icon occurs in neighbourhood view of XO-2 ( surrounding XO-1, non-surrounding XO-3). "Chat" icon occurs in neighbourhood view of XO-3 ( surrounding XO-1, non-surrounding XO-2).
  1. Join "Chat" on XO-2. "Chat" icon occurs in neighbourhood view of XO-1 ( surrounding XO-2, non-surrounding XO-3). "Chat" icon occurs in neighbourhood view of XO-2 ( surrounding XO-1, non-surrounding XO-3). "Chat" icon occurs in neighbourhood view of XO-3 ( surrounding XO-1, surrounding XO-2).
  1. Join "Chat" on XO-3. "Chat" icon occurs in neighbourhood view of XO-1 ( surrounding XO-2, surrounding XO-3). "Chat" icon occurs in neighbourhood view of XO-2 ( surrounding XO-1, surrounding XO-3). "Chat" icon occurs in neighbourhood view of XO-3 ( surrounding XO-1, surrounding XO-2).
  1. Stop "Chat" on XO-2. "Chat" icon occurs in neighbourhood view of XO-1 (non-surrounding XO-2, surrounding XO-3). "Chat" icon occurs in neighbourhood view of XO-2 ( surrounding XO-1, surrounding XO-3). "Chat" icon occurs in neighbourhood view of XO-3 ( surrounding XO-1, non-surrounding XO-2).


  1. Stop "Chat" on XO-3. "Chat" icon occurs in neighbourhood view of XO-1 (non-surrounding XO-2, non-surrounding XO-3). "Chat" icon occurs in neighbourhood view of XO-2 ( surrounding XO-1, non-surrounding XO-3). "Chat" icon occurs in neighbourhood view of XO-3 ( surrounding XO-1, non-surrounding XO-2).
  1. Stop "Chat" on XO-1. "Chat" icon disappears everywhere.

However, the behaviour is different for a different sequence of steps 6, 7 and 8.

  1. Stop "Chat" on XO-1. "Chat" icon disappears everywhere. in neighbourhood view of XO-1 (XO-2 present: NO, XO-3 present: NO). in neighbourhood view of XO-2 (XO-1 present: YES, XO-3 present: NO). in neighbourhood view of XO-3 (XO-1 present: YES, XO-2 present: NO).
  1. Stop "Chat" on XO-2. "Chat" icon continues to be disappeared everywhere. in neighbourhood view of XO-1 (XO-2 present: YES, XO-3 present: NO). in neighbourhood view of XO-2 (XO-1 present: YES, XO-3 present: NO). in neighbourhood view of XO-3 (XO-1 present: YES, XO-2 present: YES).
  1. Stop "Chat" on XO-3. "Chat" icon continues to be disappeared everywhere. in neighbourhood view of XO-1 (XO-2 present: YES, XO-3 present: YES). in neighbourhood view of XO-2 (XO-1 present: YES, XO-3 present: YES). in neighbourhood view of XO-3 (XO-1 present: YES, XO-2 present: YES).

A mixture of the above two sequence of steps would be ::

  1. Stop "Chat" on XO-2. "Chat" icon occurs in neighbourhood view of XO-1 (non-surrounding XO-2, surrounding XO-3). "Chat" icon occurs in neighbourhood view of XO-2 ( surrounding XO-1, surrounding XO-3). "Chat" icon occurs in neighbourhood view of XO-3 ( surrounding XO-1, non-surrounding XO-2).
  1. Stop "Chat" on XO-1. "Chat" icon disappears everywhere. in neighbourhood view of XO-1 (XO-2 present: YES, XO-3 present: NO). in neighbourhood view of XO-2 (XO-1 present: YES, XO-3 present: NO). in neighbourhood view of XO-3 (XO-1 present: YES, XO-2 present: YES).
  1. Stop "Chat" on XO-3. "Chat" icon continues to be disappeared everywhere. in neighbourhood view of XO-1 (XO-2 present: YES, XO-3 present: YES). in neighbourhood view of XO-2 (XO-1 present: YES, XO-3 present: YES). in neighbourhood view of XO-3 (XO-1 present: YES, XO-2 present: YES).

Interpretations / Gist ::

  1. An activity is shared in the true sense, only unless and until it continues to be "alive and running" on the initiator XO.

(i) Till such time, the "activity-icon" continues to be seen on all XOs.

(ii) Till such time, on a particular XO, all other XOs which have already joined the

activity, are shown surrounding the activity-icon.

(iii) Till such time, if a particular XO (other than the initiator XO) decides to leave the

activity, it is removed from the "surrounding" pattern from all the other XOs.

  1. However, scenrio changes if the "initiator" decides to leave the activity. In that case,

(i) The "Activity-icon" disappears from EVERYWHERE (initiator PLUS others).

(ii) All the still currently-actively-part-of-the-already-dead-sharable-activity XOs become

un-discoverable. That is, they are NOT seen by XOs that had already left the activity
before the initiator left the activity.

(iii) Such an XO becomes discoverable, only after killing the zombie instance of the activity.

The behavious above are identical in os883.img, and dx3g091.img.

So, re-assigning to juanmanuel for a re-check; and possible closing of the ticket.
