It looks like the Jokosher guys, those hard working multitrac editor programmers, have decided to immortalize my likeness in their first release which should happen in a couple of weeks. I’ve been playing with this app and can’t wait until it is unleashed to the world. With a mug like that on it, it is sure to succeed. Keep your eyes on j5live.cc where I will be posting some of my music to in the future. If anyone has some sound clips from the concert on Wednesday night please contact me.ar de es fr it ja ko pt ru zh-CN ]

We’ve placed the mono bindings in git if anyone wants to fix them up. I talked to Joe Shaw about them and he felt they should be rewritten. The D-Bus team has decided that failing to find a maintainer for the bindings we are not going to release them along with the other bindings when we do the 0.90 dbus core release. Joe felt this was for the best as perhaps it will motivate somone to take up the reigns and become a maintainer.[read this post in: ar de es fr it ja ko pt ru zh-CN ]
The dbus binding repositories have been moved under the /git/dbus directory to keep the /git namespace clean. Anongit issues have also been fixed. Get the bindings at:
I also checked in my changes to the dbus-glib bindings which allow them to build along with the examples. Tests and docs need to be readded and the build scripts cleaned up. It turns out the bindings do not use any internal API as previously thought.[read this post in: ar de es fr it ja ko pt ru zh-CN ]

Please descend on
and make them build. For anon users who want to help out replace the protocol with git:// and the location to anongit.freedesktop.org.
Feel free to restructure the directories (i.e. dbus-python/python is kind of weird). We may need to expose some d-bus symbols which are currently stripped during build now that the bindings are not being built intree.
Happy hacking.[read this post in: ar de es fr it ja ko pt ru zh-CN ]

I totaly agree. I once commented that it seems that applications tent to want to let you know they are there when in many instances they would be better doing what they do in silence. I call it the ADD desktop – look at me, I’m doing something. Notification is a double edge sword. It can convey useful information like “your battery is about to die” but also be pretty useless like “your battery is fully charged”. I know I’m going to get flamed for that one but why do I really have to know the instance my battery has a full charge? I can check fairly easily and knowing that my battery is charged doesn’t require or induce imediate action. Don’t take that personally Richard, you do an awsome job with gnome-power-manager. I don’t think it is bad in GNOME yet but it could get there fairly fast. Won’t anybody think of the children?[read this post in: ar de es fr it ja ko pt ru zh-CN ]

The D-Bus bindings in CVS are now frozen. No code should be checked in to any of the bindings directories while we move them to the git repo. Feel free to keep checking in code to the core library.[read this post in: ar de es fr it ja ko pt ru zh-CN ]

I arived in Vilanova yesterday. Due to the jet lag I have yet to make it to Barcalona for the bike tour and will most likely scrap the idea. A bunch of us ended up walking an hour and a half from the camp site to the beach to find Friday nights beach party. When we couldn’t find it we threw our own party at a local bar. Alex and I went across the street to play a game of shoot the ping-pong balls at the small carnaval they had. We pooled our winnings and got a laser pointer. It wasn’t aout the prize though. It was all about getting our aggressions out on poor unsuspecting ping-pong balls. Mission accomplished.[read this post in: ar de es fr it ja ko pt ru zh-CN ]

I’m currently getting ready to leave for GUADEC. I’ve stocked my laptop with various things I will need for group hacking sessions, got wireless working and packed a camera and headphones for the trip.
Among the most exciting prospects of this years GUADEC is the 2006 GUADEC Concert headlining the The Drooling Macaque Band. We are just a bunch a guys who said hey I can play an instrument, let’s jam!!! So far the plan is for all this to happen at the NOKIA party on Tuesday night. We plan to also have a free for all jam session and I hear there will also be a DJ to round out the evening’s festivities. Hopefully there will be someone recording the event to immortalize us making fools of ourselves, I mean capture the diverse talents of the GNOME community.
Thanks to NOKIA for letting us play the party and helping us procure instruments.[read this post in: ar de es fr it ja ko pt ru zh-CN ]

I updated to GTK+-2.9.3 and Cairo to 1.1.8 since GTK+-2.9.2 had a serious icon cache crasher bug. Grab them from http://people.redhat.com/johnp/files/gnome-2.15.3-modules/.
I also uploaded my sample-tarball.jhbuild config file. Detailed information about smoketesting is on the gnome wiki Smoketesting page. The jhbuild commands I use to build these modules looks like this:
jhbuild -m bootstrap build meta-bootstrap
jhbuild -m gnome-2.15.3.modules build meta-gnome-desktop
Everything looks good from my end so if nobody comes up with any blockers I am going to release tonight with this module set.[read this post in: ar de es fr it ja ko pt ru zh-CN ]

I’m a bit late with the module set being that this has only been my second time doing a GNOME release. I’m getting better at it. My module sets can be found at http://people.redhat.com/johnp/files/gnome-2.15.3-modules/. Please test and if need be we can always push the release out a day.[read this post in: ar de es fr it ja ko pt ru zh-CN ]
