Where to download lastest AMOS source code?

Hello,


I've made a quick search and the only repository I've found has the last update on 2012 so I don't think it is the most up-to-date.

I've searched: https://git.moodle.org/gw https://github.com/moodlehq and https://github.com/moodle but only found the amos repository at https://github.com/totara/moodle-local_amos


I would like that the comments on a contribution use all the width available, and have found that we can just remove a line to do that: https://github.com/totara/moodle-local_amos/blob/master/styles.css#L484 and would like to make a pull request (see the attached screenshot how it gets better).

It would also be nice to remove the font restriction that is put by comment-list (comments moodle api) but it would have effects outside AMOS, so I will discuss that on the proper forum =)


Kind regards,

Daniel

Thanks Daniel. As a policy, we do not share the AMOS code any more these days. Please report your suggestion as a new MDLSITE issue (component lang.moodle.org). It makes sense and should not be difficult at all to implement. In fact, I could simply re-use the style of comments from moodle.org/plugins

Hello,


When this policy started? What are the reasons behind it? Is it written somewhere so people can read?

Moodle is open-source, but has many of this "closed" source opinions, like using JIRA, not sharing the theme for the moodle.org site, hiding plugins used here and there....

I do not like this position. I will only make a pull request if the code is open, otherwise, will not give you anything.


Kind regards,

Daniel

I understand Daniels's point. Moodle is positioned as open source platform for everyone so all the code including AMOS and other things are supposed to be open to public. If there is any reasonable concern for not sharing some code like security then it should be  explained and justified. Otherwise, I only can agree with Daniel - this is against philosophy of open-source. I am apologizing if the detailed explanations about the policy were already given in some other post or document but so far I did not notice it.

I did not say I don't understand and agree with Daniels' points. Policy like this does not make anybody in Moodle HQ happy. We use it only in rare cases when we believe that it actually helps us to run Moodle as an open source project.

We reconsidered this case and we agreed that it should be okay to publish the AMOS source code again. It is now available at https://github.com/moodlehq/moodle-local_amos

Looking forward to your pull requests.

Hello, David


thanks for reconsidering.

I've opened: https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDLSITE-4471 for this and filled the repository and branch info as I would do for other Moodle issues. Do you prefer this way or we could use only github from now on ? (I would prefer gitlab that is free and open source, but people is more used to github and so it is ok for now ;)

Also, would be nice if you put a link to this github repository on the course view page people can easily found it and contribute.


Kind regards,

Daniel
