This is my (in)activity log. You might like to visit
Productivity a subsidiary of Collabora focusing on LibreOffice support and
services for whom I work.
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. Failing that, there are all manner of interesting things to read on
the LibreOffice Planet news
Stuff Michael Meeks is doing
Mail triage, admin. Tried some more to get jhbuild
to build Gnome 3.0 on SLED11-SP1 - lots of problems going beyond
the libtool one. The most evil problem is a bogus
dependency chain of doom: everything requires gvfs which
requires gnome-disk-utility (uh?) which requires udisks
(which requires lots of rather recent pieces). Suffered
with the retarded setup of 'device-mapper', atasmart,
build-your-own udev, latest avahi-ui etc.. Of course - I
had no desire to do anything clever with my disks at all.
Bad. Interestingly this mirrors some acute madness and
package splitting required for MeeGo in exactly this area.
Notable examples would be device-mapper's habit of trying to
force root user ownership, and gnome-disk-utility's wonderful
hard-coding of system paths in Makefiles, urgh:
Advisory call with Stormy & co. Martin over in
the evening with spare ATX PSU, played printing pieces and
catching up at some length.
