    Callum mentions that the rate of bug fixing is being equaled by the creation of new bugs. This is not something I worry about much. It drove the Sun people nuts, and the Novell people are showing signs that they too are going to have at least some issues wrapping their heads around it. In…

    JP’s ‘too busy to blog’ link is pretty impressive. A similar (user-space only) list for the past two weeks in GNOME is pretty cool- over 200 bugs fixed. I’m sure if we added gtk and the libs, the list would hit 300. That’s an impressive start on getting 2.6 stabilized. Since there isn’t a mailing…

    Had a productive day- had good reviews with most of my team members, did an install of xd-unstable on suse 9, and had a very useful talk with Nat- hopefully I’ll feel a little more like I have a grip on things soon.

    Further proof I should never be allowed to travel again: I left my basketball tickets in Boston, my toiletries in NYC, and I can’t seem to access my voicemail from this foreign cell network. Yargh. Am looking forward to spending a couple of uninterrupted weeks in Boston- it’s been some months since I did that,…

    I posted some LWE pics, including one of a cool GNOME banner donated by HP. Clearly it needs a pair of pants in there, though. Sun and Novell clearly need to up the ante by donating CDs and machines…

    I’m here at LWE. It’s not been a bad trip- I had wonderful Cuban food last night at Victor’s Cafe, and talking to Real People(tm) about the usability and design message is really good- when you explain what GNOME’s philosophy is on usability, they really perk up and seem to get it. But I have…
