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
Plugged away at mail; printed expense claims etc.
Back to bug triage, and fixing.
Nice to see Simon Phipp's new company ForgeRock
announced. Interesting to see their contributor agreement:
It leaves every contributor as the copyright holder of
their own code, either licensed to the community under the
same license as the rest of the project (CDDL in most cases)
or shared with ForgeRock so we can license it out under CDDL
while we hold it in trust for the community.
That looks rather positive, albeit somewhat confusing.
If the concept of licensing under the CDDL is unpleasant (why
I have no idea), it appears you can pick Apache2 as the code
license for your chunk instead. I'll be interested to see how
it pans out, cf. the FAQ.
On another front, that of Trademark policies
the malign effects over over-rigid control bite; personally I'd
love to be an IceWeazel user and know I can fearlessly patch my
browser if I need to, naturally with some fair creditation for
all the great work the Mozilla project do.
Lunch, prodded at my extruder; with the I2C bus
re-connected, getting a little extruder movement, but not
nearly enough - and not regular; annoyingly odd - plenty of
smoke and yellowing ABS too; rather a nasty odor really.
More bug fixing, chat with Vuntz. Managed to find time
away from the cliff-face to hack on bootchart2 a bit. Packaged it
for MeeGo, and prodded at the improved task logging (capturing
all the arguments), proc-events following (to avoid loosing
who-forked-whom data), and so on.
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,
