First GSoC meeting and GNOME Clock design

On thursday I met with Allan Day and Seif Lotfy via a Google Hangout to discuss my project and soon-to-start internship via Google Summer of Code, starting officially on Monday. We discussed my/our goals for the upcoming months (to have GNOME Clocks mostly finished by GUADEC and submitted to GNOME 3.6 by the end of summer), and how we plan to get there. It sounds as though some parts of the design we don’t have to worry about for now, as they will (idealy) be using GTK widgets that aren’t yet completed (for setting times as pictured here: https://live.gnome.org/Design/Apps/Clock?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=Clocks.png in the mockup for a New Alarm and Timer).

On monday we’ll be starting by cleaning up the current GNOME Clock code, and then begin working on Alarms as our first order of buisiness. We’re planning to get the basic functionality done first, and then begin iterating on design. We are hoping to get an alpha/beta release out shortly so that we can get bug reports as well as feedback on the design from actual users while we iterate on design.
