More bugs closed

Today i closed a few more xmms related bugs. Most of the bugs i closed are old bugs of unmaintained plugins from upstream that needed love.
Now i’m working on xmms-1.2.10-gentoo-patches-2.3.1 that will fix a few bugs and i’m thinking in adding a few enhancements to these patches. If you have some patches that you think it’s ready for gentoo patches mail me and i will review it. This week i will commit xmms-1.2.10-r16 with the new patches and i hope i will have some free time to commit a new cvs snapshot from xmms. Today i saw the long list of open bugs assigned to maintainer-wanted and i probably can commit a few xmms plugins that would be very useful for xmms fans.
About xmms2 the best way is to wait for DR3 release and fix the multilib-strict issue with scons then maybe i will commit to the tree.

About sound cleaning thanks to Diego “Flameeyes” i got almost 50 open bugs for xmms assigned to me.
/me kicks Flameeyes
j/k 😛

btw… Looks like arts plugin is very buggy on xmms like flac too. Upstream please fix that :P.

For AMD64 i closed a security bug and tested/keyworded a few more apps too. I Hope you enjoy 😉

Xmms updates

Today i updated xmms-scrobbler with 2 patches from the Debian maintainer and xmms-wma with a patch made by eradicator and modified by me. Next week i plan to release xmms-1.2.10-gentoo-patches-2.3.1 with new patches. One that set gentoo-ice the default skin (to clean the ebuild) and a few patches from upstream to close bugs related to flac. Maybe i will add a few more skins to xmms-themes package for that i will look this week for a few cool skins to add to this package. It’s was nice if somebody saves me time and point me a few good looking skins for xmms(specially related to gentoo) and mail me.
If you have some patch you think it’s good for xmms feel free to open a bug assigned to me and i will commit after i review the patch. About xmms2 next week i will probably begin to work on it and in a few frontends to test,test and test before commit to portage.

This week again don’t expect too much from me(again) because i have 2 tests at university and a birthday party.
I’d like to say amd64 team have two new ATs and their nicks are KristinG and cokehabit congrats both.

Yesterday i finally finish install e17 and i must say i’m impressed. It looks really great and feels like a new desktop for me. Maybe i will switch from gnome to e17 soon.

A month after my last blog entry

Yep it’s true more than one month i didn’t blog. During this time i begin my classes at the university and i was very busy doing the receptions to the new freshmans. Yes we have a ritual that we called “praxe” and we joke and teach a few things to the freshmans (just like the army).
This year i will have to do intensive work with matlab/octave(as usual), maple, FORTRAN(as usual) and big news is python because it’s a very easy and powerful coding language to work with physics/math problems.
Yesterday was my birthday and it was a normal day like the others and so i was having fun with friends, taking launch with parents and go out for shopping. Ok i promised to my friends i will pay a couple of beers to them next Wednesday so don’t expect too much from me that day.

About Gentoo i’ve been busy with the usual herds i’m part and now like Diego told before here in planet i’m the new XMMS maintainer. I would like to say that Jeremy “eradicator” did an excellent job maintaining XMMS for all these years and i want to continue his job maintaining XMMS.
All users can sleep good again 🙂 because XMMS have a new maintainer for Gentoo. If you want to tell me something about XMMS(bugs, suggestions or helping) feel free to join #gentoo-media @
For now i’m trying to close bugs and do some version bumps for XMMS plugins then maybe i will add a few new plugin packages to portage after stabilize most of the bugs.
When i have some free time i promise i will start writing an ebuild for xmms2, put it on my devspace, start testing it and add it to portage.
