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 early; mail chew, worked away reviewing and polishing the
Unity menus work from Canonical / Bjoern / Antonio Fernandez of
Aentos. For the curious
pictures of this and more are here - it should ship working out of the box
in 4.0. [Update:] - turns out I forgot to mention the other
heros supporting this nice integration: Alberto Ruiz, Ryan Lortie and
Ted Gould - thanks guys !
Lunch. Baak to mail, admin etc. TDF Board call.
A few quick thoughts in response to Armin (an IBM employee):
Of course we're grateful to all who have contributed code to LibreOffice,
and we will do our best to credit them where appropriate as we build out
our 4.0 release notes; thanks Armin. We're currently in a 4.0 feature-freeze /
release crunch, with the code shaping up really nicely with contributions from
hundreds of volunteers. No-one should get the idea that LibreOffice will blindly
include whatever gets into Apache OpenOffice into our code-base going forward.
That is emphatically not the case - any code that is included will be
reviewed rather later, with a priority and preference given to code first
contributed to LibreOffice. If you haven't tried it - why not jump into hacking on
LibreOffice today: our codebase gets rapidly cleaner and prettier but
we're always in need of help. One great live topic of today is the new:
Layout work in VCL that makes the UI look significantly prettier.

In case it's not painfully obvious: the reflections reflected here are my

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