This is my (in)activity log. You might like to visit my employer
Novell which is an amazing company, and also
Dell who in days of yore provided me with a
free laptop for Gnome development / conferences.
Also if you have the time to read this sort of stuff you could enlighten
yourself by going to Unraveling Wittgenstein's net or if
you are feeling objectionable perhaps here.
Stuff Michael Meeks is doing
- New GB options patch from Ken, merged up and
- Hans has sorted a load of stuff out in
helix-setup-tools, and the time-admin tool has this funky
locale selection widget with global map, zoom and well; it's
really nice, should be a bonobo control.
- Spent a long time looking at Darin's bug in more
detail, turned out to be an important feature. Spent even
longer trying to think how to improve the feature and
accelerate merging. Tentative patch queued for later.
- Continued on async monikers, couldn't understand
a problem for ages. Turned out to be an evil ORB bug affecting
anyone marshaling objrefs genericaly eg. arrays of them or
- Begged Elliot for a new ORBit release.
- Committed async moniker bits parsing bits, now
just need to implement bonobo_get_object_async and it'll be
nice. Perhaps an async stream interface would be good too.
- Reverted the UI handler changes, finished the async
stuff, talked to Miguel about what to do next.
- Located another ORBit problem, the regression tests
don't pass for some unfathomable reason, they used to just fine,
In case it's not painfully obvious: the reflections reflected here are my
own; mine, all mine ! and don't reflect the views of Novell, The
Lithuanian Gov't or Arnold Schwarzenegger. It's also important to
realise that I'm not in on the Swedish Conspiracy.
Occasionally people ask for formal photos for conferences,
