Proposal for personal WIP branches in git

There’s a bit of discussion going on at the DX hackfest about personal
branches of other people’s modules.

People here agree that it would be pretty good if we standardised on:
    wip/$nick/$branch_name
as the name for your branches on someone else’s module. These could be
pushed to git.gnome.org without worrying about asking permission from
the module maintainer.

‘wip’ to allow force-pushes, and $nick to disambiguate.

If nobody has any objections, I could add this to
    https://wiki.gnome.org/Git/FAQ

debugging gdm

Hi guys,

I'm in a bit of a quandary. I ran a 'yum update' on my fedora 21 system
which has two nvidia k2200 cards. I'm running the nvidia closed source
driver provided by rpmfusion. After the yum update, gdm stopped working.
Basically during the booting process, the screen goes blank and after a
few minutes my PC beeps. If change the default target to multi-user and
then log in and type 'startx', the gnome desktop springs to life. When I
log out, screen goes blank, and I never get back to my command line
prompt. Then my PC beeps a few times.

So, I'm wondering if my gdm problem is related to gnome logging out when
I start gnome using the startx command as opposed to gdm starting gnome.
Therefore, I was hoping someone could give me some tips on how to debug
either gdm, or gnome, specifically when I exit gnome (i.e. click on the
logout button in the tool bar.)  The Xorg.0.log file does not seem to
have anything in it indicating that the X server crashed or anything
like that.

Previous to the 'yum update', gdm seemed to work fine. The update pulled
in a new kernel 3.18.3-201.fc21.x86_64 and a new nvidia driver,
346.35-1.fc21.x86_64.

Thanks.

Reminder: three weeks until UI freeze

Hi all,

Just a reminder that UI freeze starts on 16 March - which is three
weeks from now. If you have any new features or UI changes that you
would like reviewing, feel free get in touch and I'll take a look.

Also, don't forget to take a look over the list of target bugs [1], if
you haven't already.

GNOME 3.15.4

Hi all,

GNOME 3.15.4 is out. This is a development snapshot, so use it
with caution.

Among the new things in this snapshot, you can find
clutter using the GDK backend, libinput used in multiple modules
(we require libinput 0.8), gnome-shell using vp9 for screencasts,
mutter using GTK+ themes, input configuration under Wayland,
scrolling changes in GTK+, improved search in gnome-software,
a new game (gnome-taquin), and many more.

To compile GNOME 3.15.4, you can use the jhbuild [1] modulesets [2]
(which use the exact tarball versions from the official release).

You can also test the latest code using the vm images [3] that are
produced by our continuous integration infrastructure,
build.gnome.org.

help needed for OSK layout files

Hello,

There is a long-standing request that gnome-shell OSK should respect
system's keyboard layout[1].  Though actually it works already, we are
still missing the majority of layout files (see
/usr/share/caribou/layouts/touch/*.xml; there are only 3).  I'd like to
call for more layout files submitted, hopefully in the 3.16 cycle.

I understand that writing a layout file from scratch is an uphill task.
On the other hand, the Unicode CLDR repository provides an extensive set
of OSK layouts for platforms including Android, Chrome OS, and Mac OS X.

So, as a first step, I wrote a procedure for creating a layout file
based on the CLDR data:
https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/Caribou/NewLayout

If you come up with a new layout, please file it against the 'caribou'
product on bugzilla.  I have no expertise in design but should be able
to do a quick review.

Future of libRSVG

Hello Gnomers and especially ChPe!

The front page of the libRSVG project¹ guided me to this mailing list. 
I'm searching for information about the future of libRSVG. Background of 
my interrest is that I'm a volunteering author of german languaged 
Wikipedia. The software MediaWiki used for reading and editing Wikipedia 
with your web browser requires² libRSVG to convert SVG vector graphics 
to browser friendly PNG.

¹ 
https://wiki.gnome.org/action/show/Projects/LibRsvg?action=show&redirect=LibRsvg
² https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:SVG

As libRSVG is missing some major features defined by SVG standard there 
are some anoying pitfalls. Here I'm asking for a statement what you are 
planning to do about libRSVG. And from the point of view of a Wikipedia 
volunteer, what might be done to improve this situation.

(I'll reference this thread for discussions on Wikipedia)

Greetings.

setting primary monitor bug

Guys,
I'm not sure where to submit this bug, but here goes.

I'm running gnome on fedora 21.

I have 3 (yes, 3, just added another one) 4K dell up3214q monitors
hooked up to my desktop. The 4K monitor has the dual tile architecture
to drive the full 4K at 60Hz, meaning that each monitor is actually two
sub monitors (tiles) with a resolution of 1980x2160 placed side by side
to make up one full monitor.

So I have in effect 6 sub monitors or tiles (2 per physical monitor).

When I go to arrange the tiles using the display setting tool, I had a
hard time setting the primary tile. In the setup that I have, the order
of the tiles, going from left to right as I look at my three monitors is
2, 1, 4, 3, 6, 5. So I want the left side of my center monitor to be the
primary one. The only way I could do this was to set monitor #1 (the
right side of my left monitor) to be the primary display and then reset
the primary display to tile #4. When I first logged in, the primary
display was set to tile #2. I then set the primary display (by accident)
to monitor #3 thinking the order was 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and ended up with
the primary display being on the right side of my center monitor. So I
went to set it to tile #4 and it refused to set it there. I could then
set tile #2, but not #4. I then set the primary display to tile #1 and
then #4 at which point that actually worked.

I don't know if this makes any sense, but I thought perhaps it was due
to the large number of tiles I'm working with that it messed up the
ability to set the primary display on tile #4 when the current primary

GNOME 3.15.4 unstable tarballs due

Hello all,

Tarballs are due on 2015-01-19 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.15.4
unstable release, which will be delivered on Wednesday. Modules which
were proposed for inclusion should try to follow the unstable schedule
so everyone can test them.  Please make sure that your tarballs will
be uploaded before Monday 23:59 UTC: tarballs uploaded later than that
will probably be too late to get in 3.15.4. If you are not able to
make a tarball before this deadline or if you think you'll be late,
please send a mail to the release team and we'll find someone to roll
the tarball for you!

For more information about 3.15, the full schedule, the official
module lists and the proposed module lists, please see our colorful 3.15
page:
   http://www.gnome.org/start/unstable

For a quick overview of the GNOME schedule, please see:

Bugzilla upgrade to release 4.4.6 - Testing needed

Hi there!

I'm so glad to announce we made a tremendous jump ahead of having our
Bugzilla istance upgraded to the latest stable release being 4.4.6.

Thanks to the hard job of Krzesimir Nowak who spent the last few
months migrating our customizations to the new codebase and to Olav
Vitters who started the process a while back we are ready to announce
the availability of a test istance based on Bugzilla 4.4.6 with all
the customizations we have in place at bugzilla.gnome.org.

Although have tested and are not aware of any blockers are still
around to justify delaying the upgrade even longer we thought it was
the case to give everyone a week for testing all the new features and
GNOME customizations, specifically we would love receiving intensive
testing on the following features:

1. Git-bz
2. Patch statuses extension (i.e [1])
3. Splinter
