    Re: Ongoing crowdfunding campaigns

    PengPod reached its funding goal and Nicolas posted details on the GIMP image resamplers:
    ITEMIZED DELIVERABLES WITH COST AND TIME TO DELIVERY

    Most likely, I am not the most competent person to execute Step 6) and
    Step 7). I am also quite certain that I am not the only person who
    could do Step 1) and Step 2). If somebody else gets these done, I'll
    do my best to ensure that they get the loot.
    Step 1)

    Add more mipmap levels to LoHalo (to be renamed NoHalo) and tweak
    their use to make resampling more accurate for very large downsampling
    ratios, and make the computation faster for moderate ratios. This
    machinery will be reused with the new samplers. Lohalo currently uses
    two mipmap (a.k.a. pyramid) levels:

    http://git.gnome.org/browse/gegl/tre...mpler-lohalo.c

    At least three, and ideally four, mipmap levels are needed to produce
    good thumbnails from large images.

    Cost: 900USD. Approximate time to delivery (once started): two weeks.
    Step 2)

    Modify GEGL's geometrical transformation code so that resampling is
    done, as much as possible, from top to bottom and left to right, in
    order to better use GEGL's buffering system and speed up computation.

    Cost: 150USD. Time to delivery: a few days.
    Step 3)

    Program the new GEGL LoHalo and link it to GIMP.

    Cost: 550USD. Time to delivery: one and a half weeks.
    Step 4)

    Program the new GEGL LoJaggy and link it to GIMP.

    Cost: 900USD. Time to delivery: three and a half weeks (to give the
    needed formula computations time to run).
    Step 5)

    Program the new GEGL LoBlur and link it to GIMP.

    Cost: 900USD. Time to delivery: three and a half weeks.
    Step 6)

    Enhance GIMP and GEGL so that the Image Scale and Layer Scale
    operations use the “CLAMP” (nearest neighbour) abyss policy and the
    tools that use samplers use the “NONE” (fade to transparency) abyss
    policy. This will remove the border artifacts from the former
    operations without introducing “radiating extensions” to the latter.

    Cost: 650USD. Time to delivery: two weeks.
    Step 7)

    Fix the RaGaBaA (alpha-multiplied light) sampler data buffering system
    so that the GIMP hack which consists of allocating a buffer storing it
    is not needed any more, making computation both faster and less
    resource hungry.

    Cost: 1000USD. Time to delivery: three weeks.
    Step 8)

    It has been pointed out by other GEGL developers that I should
    document the performance improvements with benchmarks. I don't want to
    spend too much time on this (“I sponsored additional functionality and
    all I got is this lousy benchmark.”) so I'll keep this simple, but I'm
    adding it to the total. (Will split the loot if I get help on this.)

    Cost: 300USD. Time to delivery: Two weeks.
    Grand total: 5350USD.
    Total time: Assuming the money keeps flowing, four months

    after I get started, since the individual times to delivery are fairly
    conservative and long numerical computations can run while I program
    something else.

    I was planning to post that as well. Thanks for continuing to update this thread!

    Although I bet a very small about of those 'disabilities' would prevent use of a computer.

    Help Konstantin Dmitriev travel to Libre Graphics Meeting
    Funding Status: $156 raised of $880
    Drive ends: Thu 07 Mar 11:59PM PT
    This is an "all-or-nothing" campaign, so if the goal will not be reached everyone will get their money back. This is made for the reason, because Konstantin can't travel a half way to Madrid.

    LGM Travel for Gustavo, Onyeibo & Tatica
    raised $741.00, but still need $4,659.00
    Gustavo's part is almost ready. He needs $80 more before Feb 15 because of the visa.

    Yorba (the folk behind shotwell) are gearing up for a crowdfunder for Geary (their email client). The are currently asking for videos about Shotwell or Geary.
