Sponsoring X2Go Development

Companies who provide X2Go sessions to their staff or to their customers are welcome to request X2Go new features. Feature development can be contracted. If possible, the requested feature will become a part of the publicly available X2Go components.

Contact for Sponsors

If you or your company want(s) to sponsor X2Go development, please contact one of the official professional supporters of X2Go by mail. Depending on your request you may then be redirected to one of the other developers, depending on the request you have and the skills of the developer(s).

Features Available for Sponsoring

We have a pool of ideas that are available for sponsor partnership. View the brainstorm pool here.

Current Feature Sponsoring

Interface between LightDM's remote login feature and X2Go Session Broker

Sponsored by Aps:

  • The remote login feature in LightDM uses UCCS for session brokerage. The UCCS is a very public service. The main caveat is: UCCS offers to store user passwords and these passwords (at time of Ubuntu 12.10 and Ubuntu 13.04) get stored in plaintext at Canonical (or at least can be easily unhashed). A site admin surely would love to have such a web portal as UCCS at hand, so that the remote login feature can be used on the local network without Canonical as the brokerage provide in the loop.
  • This sponsored project is to provide a drop-in replacement for the Ubuntu package lightdm-remote-session-uccsconfigure that replaces UCCS with the X2Go Session Broker as session brokerage provider
  • The users shall then be able to use LightDM's remote login feature to launch X2Go and RDP sessions. The session profiles will be provided by the X2Go Session Broker
