This is my (in)activity log. You might like to visit my employer
SUSE 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; read mail. Excited to see gcc switching to a more modern
for compiler development; hopefully that will over time not only improve
the generated C++ binary output, but also hopefully as a side-effect of
re-writing de-foul the horrendous type-unsafe tree tangle in the core.
Not being a language-bigot I have no stake in any C vs. C++ wars, it is
possible to write clean, readable, maintainable code in both - however
the gcc core really needs a big cleanup - and if this is the trigger: I'm
excited; go gcc !
A fair bit of feedback on NEEDINFO bugs that got automatically
closed, (sadly in error) multiple times; thanks to all the kind folk who
pointed out that the lack of response was nothing much to do with the bug
and re-opened real, live issues vs. a recent release: we rely on bug
reporters keeping their bugs up-to-date. The reason some of our earliest
bugs were in NEEDINFO anyway was a proxy for UNCONFIRMED - a state to which
it is (apparently) impossible to return unless you have direct DB access,
thanks for your patience; if a bug is still live please just re-open it -
and yes, getting involved with LibreOffice QA
is a great thing to do to help out.
Chewed more mail, reviewed patches, responded to bug traffic,
turned a number of bugs into easy hacks by adding code pointers. Sent out
lots of individual reminders about the canonical git repository moving
under gerrit's control.
Chat with an old friend; dinner, put babes to bed, processed
some administration; off for the evening.

In case it's not painfully obvious: the reflections reflected here are my
own; mine, all mine ! and don't reflect the views of SUSE, Novell, The

It's also important to realise that I'm not in on the Swedish Conspiracy.
Occasionally people ask for formal photos for conferences
