[opensuse-boosters] Week report 2010#26

What I did last week:
- participated in the 1:1 GNOME Advisory Board meeting for Novell
- released a few tarballs for GNOME 2.31.4
- pushed a few more fixes for openSUSE 11.3, and tried to work on a few
others; replied to GNOME-related issues on mailing lists and made
sure I was aware of the latest bugs reported against GNOME for 11.3.
- published (but haven't announce yet) the GNOME Foundation policy on
copyright assignments. Work on this was mostly done by Bradley Kuhn
and Michael Meeks:
- helped Andreas put more content in the 11.3 product highlights for
- had to deal with various last-minute organization issues for GUADEC
(from the Novell side, not from the GNOME side). That lead me to
annoy Robert to get an ad for the openSUSE conference.
- created the gsettings-desktop-schemas module upstream: this is
something that was needed for some time to help with the migration
from GConf to GSettings; it contains settings shared by various
applications (or desktop-wide settings, if you prefer):
- committed some changes upstream to help with GNOME 3:
+ made gnome-session build against gtk+ 3
+ create a gtk+ 3 version of libgweather that should be
parallel-installable with the old one
+ made patches to kill the old GnomeDesktopItem API from
+ various smaller fixes
- started looking at the screencasting options to do a GNOME 3
screencast, but wasn't very happy with the things I quickly played
with so far; will continue this.
- chatted a bit about the maintenance team, and subscribed to the
maintenance mailing list.
- did various administrative work.

What has been blocking/annoying me:
- I was not able to successfully build the new gnome-keyring-sharp, and
apparently nobody knows what's the right way to fix this:
This means we're shipping with a known crasher:
and more generally, no mono app can use the keyring.
- didn't have time to follow the discussions on opensuse-project
(at least the strategy one)

What I'll be doing this week:
- catch up with strategy discussion
- I'm going to RMLL from Wednesday to Saturday. That's the biggest
community event in France:
I'll be delivering a talk about contributing to openSUSE and another
one about GNOME 3. I'll also help on a booth shared with various
distributions (michl sent me some goodies)
- will probably prepare my talks (based on the talks I co-delivered at
- more screencast investigation fun
