Closing of support <at> gnome.org

There are various ways to contact the sysadmin team

1. Bugzilla
   For specific issues that should be fixed. Bugs can be hidden if
   needed. Not for meant for discussions!
   https://bugzilla.gnome.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=sysadmin
2. gnome-infrastructure <at> gnome.org
   Public mailing list. For public discussions. Also receives a copy of
   the publicly visible sysadmin bugs.
   http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gnome-infrastructure
3. gnome-sysadmin <at> gnome.org
   Private mailing list. This receives a *lot* of log output as well;
   not every email might be read.

The following has been discontinued:
4. support <at> gnome.org, helpdesk <at> gnome.org, etc
   Uses Request Tracker 3 on the background. Receives loads of spam and
   non-sysadmin related requests (distribution problems, jhbuild, etc).

Instead of support <at> gnome.org, use one of the 3 options given above.
Bugzilla is preferred for specific issues, after that
gnome-infrastructure, lastly gnome-sysadmin.

Note:
accounts <at> gnome.org is still active.

GNOME 2.29.90 beta tarballs due

Another week, another release ! 2.29.90 tarballs are due next Monday.
Be aware that we are entering UI freeze territory now.

Tarballs are due on 2010-02-08 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 2.29.90
beta 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 2.29.90. 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!

No UI changes may be made at all without confirmation from the release
team and notification to the documentation team.

For more information about 2.29, the full schedule, the official
module lists and the proposed module lists, please see our colorful
2.29 page:
  http://www.gnome.org/start/unstable

For a quick overview of the GNOME schedule, please see:
  http://live.gnome.org/Schedule

Thanks,

Matthias

New EOG maintainers

Hi all,

It's been quite some time that you Felix Riemann and Claudio Saavedra
have been doing all the development work in EOG and I think it's time
to pass the ball to them. So, this is just to let everyone know that
I'm officially passing the EOG maintainer post to them.

Thanks Felix and Claudio for the great work!

Happy hacking!

Gnome, have you lost your FREAKING MIND!

Hi,

Now you've really done it, you've got me mad!

Lets start...
1. It took ~7 YEARS to get multiple line truncation in pango, glib
then gnome! Even then it barely made it in
2. Some person had the not so bright idea of disabling icons for the
system menu and not for the rest causing odd menus
3. Browser mode was forcefully disabled despite spatial mode was and
still is the favorite one
4. Now the most used icons have text beside them and the others.. have
only icons
5. Now the only decent way to get "icons only" is also removed by some
interface idiot leaving only gconf to change it

Those are my most annoyed issues UI issues which i notice all the time
when using Gnome
Add to that:
6. thumbnails and icons are not of the same size causing ugly folders
and desktop looks
7. there is still no decent desktop grid to align things (last gnome i
used: 2.28)

So those 7 points are all MAJOR issues for me all visible every time i
use freaking gnome.
as for #3. I've even caused 2 flame wars about that.. both resulting
in the majority in favor of browser mode.. oh well.. your meritocracy
is keeping that brainless decision alive here.

Libgda's minimum required version

Hi!

Libgda is an external dependency and I would like to propose to
recommend version 4.0.7 instead of the currently recommended version
4.0.0:
* there is no API/ABI change between the 2 versions
* many bugs have been corrected

Please let me know if/when I can update the External Dependencies of
GNOME 2.29.x page and the jhbuild's 2.30 moduleset file.

Regards,

Vivien

Updated webkit version to 1.1.21

I've just updated WebKitGtk required version here [1] and in jhbuild
moduleset for 2.30.

Version 1.1.21 is required by Epiphany.

Cheers, Luca.

Sounds good for the recommended version -- I'm unsure if we put the
required version or the recommended version in jhbuild, though.

Thanks. Btw, I guess it's fine to assume there'll be a version of
WebKitGtk that will be maintained for the 2.30 development cycle (like
1.1.15 was/is for 2.28, iirc)?
