Metric shitload of GNOME work conquered recently. Lots of running around to the various authors looking to get their software into the Desktop release, making sure they know what to expect, whether they’re ready or not, encouraging them to release and see what happens, etc. The 2.1.x series is shaping up very well, and within a few months, we ought to have a kickarse 2.2 release.
Flabbergasted by the amount of work being done in the last four days before the freeze. We’re down to about two now (give or take a few timezones), and there’s an amazing list of proposed modules and features. Rock!
Also announced the GNOME Power Tools, a new category for all of those geeky utilities and playthings that don’t quite fit into our broadly-targeted Desktop release. Massive response, lots of people suggesting their software, and plenty of nominations from users of cool tools. Great to see -> I’m including everything in GARNOME for now, will decide on a release schedule soon.
Much work on the new website, most of my time being spent on making the documentation really sweet. I’ve been reading a lot of GNOME docs as I’ve been preparing this, and have been very impressed with their quality. All the more reason to get them up on the web for everyone, and to make them really shine.
I’ll be standing for the Foundation Board elections again this year. Not convinced that I actually want to be on the Board though, given that my time is probably better spent working on the infrastructure and release stuff. I’ll mention this in my candidacy, so everyone else can decide. Hooray for shirking responsibility to the will of democracy!
i am in love
I found out she’s an angel
I don’t think she knows I know
I’m worried that something might happen to me
If anyone ever finds out
