This June, I was in Seoul, Korea for the GNOME.Asia Summit, the yearly occasion to meet up with the Asian side of the GNOME community. As always, it was an awesome conference, with so many cool people. I learned about new projects like Seafile and got to meet new friends and catch up with old ones.
I’d also to thank my employer, Collabora, for sponsoring my flight and the GNOME foundation for paying the hotel.
I’ve recently been involved in a project with a customer to set up their development team to use LiveCode on Debian workstations. If you haven’t heard about LiveCode, they recently had 3,342 backers pledge £493,795 of the initial £350,000 goal on Kickstarter. That’s quite an accomplishment! I am not involved in the development part of this project, only in providing infrastructure support and services.
I am really sad to see so much energy spent by the community criticizing Canonical and on Canonical’s side, trying to explain and justify so many decisions and actions.
My main concern is all this energy being directed where it doesn’t stand a chance to make a difference, as we know all the rocket pieces are being discarded. I invite you to consider focusing on other projects that need people like you:
Mon projet d’autonomie télévisuelle à la maison avance et a franchi une étape importante cette semaine: notre compte de câble (service Illico) de Vidéotron est officiellement fermé Un enregistreur numérique conçu à partir de logiciels libres et de composantes informatiques ordinaires remplace maintenant la boîte noire fournie par cette entreprise québécoise.
Chances are that you already heard me say something along the lines of Don't 'upgrade' tonbsp; WMS 1.3.0 unless you really have to because it's a mess, stick to WMS 1.1.1 if you can. This may sound like an old story to those who have been around since the adoption of WMS 1.3.0 in 2004, but believe it or not we still hit those 1.3.0 issues today 8 years later. The last time was a few weeks ago and that got me started on that same old rant once again.
