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
- Up early, chewed mail. Some chap reported a
silly build bug in bonobo 1.0.11 just after I released
1.0.12 with the same problem; sigh. Now if only we had an
oaf release to depend upon - 2 months since the last
release, and umpteen serious bugs fixed.
- Excellent! Owen agreed to doing a new Gtk+
release, so we can build our platform beta almost on
time. And Owen has a fix for my Gdk resource tracking
bug too - wow, Christmas has come early. Jacob checked in
his libglade work, so now I can build bug-buddy-2.0.
- Discovered a load more mail flooding in when
I'd just pulled it - hmm, very strange indeed.
- Added a FIXME back into libbonobo, sigh.
Committed the shlib factory fixes to libbonobo. Rationalized
the slew of g_atexit functions in bonobo to ensure they all
run in the right order, and that we can cleanup explicitely.
- Wrote a FAQ
for ORBit2 and posted it to the list. Namespaced the type
library install properly as well.
- Finally managed to pull my mail. More ORB
fixing - versioned the typelib install path, fixed up
various things, read some more of at-spi, mailed Bill.
- Fixed up the libbonoboui glade support - curious,
still good to have libglade really at the core of it all,
especially since it's so small nowadays. Fixed up several
recently introduced libglade bugs, fixed the canvas
libglade API usage. Finally bug buddy works in all it's glory.
- Added menus-have-icons to libgnome's desktop
settings schema so we get to see the icons. Phoned 'Pastor
Neil' - he can't meet us this weekend, so we can go off
- Fixed a host of interesting reference counting
problems in the tests inside libbonobo, abandon trying to
unload shlib components - not very feasible, nor gives a
- Binary chopped out a POA reference leak inside
bonobo-activation; good. Added protection in linc so you
can only turn threading on before you start creating locks,
updated the FAQ. Got on the trail of some evil POA refernce
leaks inside the ORB, very strange.
- J' arrived home, looking quite georgeous. Tea,
and off for a run. Copped out half way round, feeling totaly
feeble, Jacket potatoes & bed.
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,
