This is the ritual hello world post since I’ve bothered beandog enough to finally get one. Thanks very much (again) btw, I will now be able to spam the universe with my futile speech and go on with my plan to conquer the world.
Hello world, check. If any of you didn’t know yet, I’m the bastard that sticks a comment in nearly every bug report you opened about gnome in the last months. Please excuse me if I sometimes sound rude, people knowning me IRL always tell me that I feel grumpy but words cannot conway has much as I’d wish them to.
So I’ve heard gentoo is dying – why do I keep hearing that ? we should really be dead if the guys that said that were true the first time, or the second time, or … – but guess what we are not really :). I’ve seen KDE folks doing a crazy job at getting 4.2 out quickly and so I decided gnome had to move on and stop waiting for regression fixes that will never come when we have good and tested workarounds. That means you won’t get all Gnome 2.24 but only the pieces that work well together. Gnome 2.24 is coming near you as soon as our all-mighty arch teams process bug #260063. Be kind and don’t report your own personal problems there but please do fill your own reports if they haven’t been filled yet. For those that cannot find ekiga-3 in tree, I’m sorry but we didn’t have time to review the ebuilds so it’s still in bugzilla (or rather I had a look and got scared by the libs).
There is probably more to say but I’ll keep that for another day.
