Does anyone know if the location requestor module for Python is going to be built into the base Python set of modules at any point? I took the time today to try to figure out the twisty set of pages that Nokia make developers navigate in order to do anything with their devices, only to find that even after finding an open source tool for manipulating sis files and certificates, and signing up for symbiansigned.com, and installing Wine on my Linux system so that I could run their .EXE only certificate signing request program, that for some reason it doesn’t seem to run under Wine? Why? Seriously, at this point I don’t give a fuck any more. I’m just curious when I can get Python on my phone to do what I would like it to do.
But since I’m here and I’ve bothered to go through this stuff, here’s some free advice for Nokia that they can feel free to use should they decide to extract their heads from their asses any time soon: When you generate a random key for developer use and package it up for developer use, the “secret key” isn’t really all that important. Just generate the damn thing on the symbiansigned site and send it back to the developer so they can use it. It’s supposed to be tied to the IMEI, right? So who cares about the private key? Come on folks, I just want to write software for your hardware. Why do you keep making is so hard for me?
