GNOME 2.91.0 tarballs needed by Monday

Hello everyone.

The excitement starts again, we are diving into another development
cycle. This time, the wild ride will take us all the way to GNOME 3,
so better fasten your seatbelts, and get your modules building by
Monday. If you need help in getting your module to build with GTK+
2.91, don't hesitate to seek help on #gtk+.

Tarballs are due on 2010-10-04 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 2.91.0
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 2.91.0. 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 2.91, the full schedule, the official
module lists and the proposed module lists, please see our colorful
2.91 page:

Moduleset Reorganization -- Take two

Hi,

The release team updated the proposal to reorganize the modulesets. We
discussed a first version back in June [1], and there are a few visible
changes:

 - we added a system platform category in the platform, and we now also
   talk about dbus services there.

 - we listened to the feedback where people didn't like the fact that
   inclusion of applications had no barrier to entry at all. We do think
   the Core Desktop vs Applications separation is good, and we also
   believe it's important to simplify the process and to be more liberal
   for "simple" applications (ie, applications that won't be in the Core
   Desktop).

 - we also listened to translators, who have a need for a simple
   workflow. There is no perfect solution for now, but we propose a way
   forward.

This is obviously an important topic, so please take some time to read
the proposal and send feedback.

I apologize for this being a bit late; purely my fault.

Cheers,

Vincent

GNOME 2.91.0 Development Release

GNOME 2.91.0 Development Release
===============================

We just released GNOME 2.32, and now here's already the first milestone
of the next development cycle. 2.91.0 brings us back to the push for
GNOME 3.

This is an early development snapshot, and some significant changes
have landed in our platform recently (in gobject-introspection and GTK+),
therefore this snapshot is a little rough. Some things might not build or
work flawlessly.

But it is your chance to get an early view at things to come in GNOME3,
so go download it, go compile it, go test it.  And go hack on it, document it,
translate it, fix it.

To compile GNOME 2.91.0, you can the jhbuild [1] modulesets [2] (which
use the exact tarball versions from the official release):

 [1] http://library.gnome.org/devel/jhbuild/
 [2] http://download.gnome.org/teams/releng/2.91.0/

The release notes that describe the changes between 2.30.0 and 2.91.0
are available. Go read them to learn all the goodness of this release:

scheduled maintenance: progress, socket

I would like to propose a short downtime window for progress and
socket for 2010-10-14 10:00am - 11:00am MDT. These machines manage the
following services:

progress.gnome.org:
 - l10n.gnome.org
 - secondary name server

socket.gnome.org:
 - crm-test.gnome.org
 - website-editors.gnome.org
 - wptest.gnome.org

The purpose of this downtime is to apply errata and kernel updates,
and to continue to streamline our procedure and documentation.

If anyone has any concerns about this date/time, please let me know. A
second email will be sent just prior to the start of this downtime.

Thank you,
Christer

maintenance reminder: 30 minute warning

Reminder - I will be rebooting two machines in the Canonical data
center (progress and socket) in ~30min. I don't anticipate any issues
as these both have a good track record of coming back online properly.
Please wrap up anything you might be doing on these machines. To be
conservative, please allow 1hr before diving back into work.

Thank you,
Christer

GNOME 2.91.1 unstable tarballs due

Hi all,

Time to work on one more development release towards the great
Three Point Zero (tm) release! Maintainers who release tarballs on time
will get a free trip to Mars! You can't miss it! Make sure your modules
actually build with 3.0 deps in order to make our lives easier :-)

Tarballs are due on 2010-10-18 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 2.91.1
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 2.91.1. 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 2.91, the full schedule, the official
module lists and the proposed module lists, please see our colorful 2.91
page:

GNOME 2.91.1 Development Release

GNOME 2.91.1 Development Release
===============================

Now the fun begins! With all the moving parts in our platform, making
this release was... challenging. To not say, extremely painful :-)

There a few modules which are still trying to recover from the major
changes in GTK+ and another few haven't been ported to new libnotify
API. Some modules might not even run at this point.

The positive outcome of this release is that quite a few bugs have
been reported to fix the issues we found (so next releases will probably
be smoother) and some maintainers have already made necessary changes
to get their modules building with GNOME 3.

If you have bug reports requesting your module to comply with new
dependencies and APIs in GNOME 3, please act on them as soon as possible
so that next releases are a bit easier for all of us.

To compile GNOME 2.91.1, you can the jhbuild [1] modulesets [2] (which
use the exact tarball versions from the official release):

 [1] http://library.gnome.org/devel/jhbuild/
 [2] http://download.gnome.org/teams/releng/2.91.1/

The release notes that describe the changes between 2.90.0 and 2.91.1
are available. Go read them to learn all the goodness of this release:

downtime of all services in order to apply kernel updates and other
errata. If this time window is a concern to anyone, please let us know
as soon as possible.

A second reminder will go out an hour previous to this downtime.
