installing some apps never finishes
example of this is gallery-2, where the app appears to install correctly if you look at /var/log/amahi-app-installer.log
yet the UI never finishes, and also the app is not working properly.

I don't know how viable this solution might be but I was thinking of fixing this issue in the following way.
Using a sqlite-db or redis etc will require us to do a lot of changes. To avoid that we can do the following also if possible.
Presently the request for app install progress is done on http://hda/tab/apps/install_progress/<app-id>
This request gets handled by rails app but the request fails when app is restarting.
To fix that our browser can make a request to http://progress.amahi.net/app-id.html. Basically the installation script will write the status on a file in some directory. Even though passenger is restarting, httpd is still up and can handle the request. That's why we are writing a virtual host (for progress.amahi.net).

There are other ways to handle coordination in Rails than using an external server or (much worse-performing) the file system.
I will try and work on this as soon as I get going with the current issues in amahi.org
