Mallard Documentation for Gnome Applications.

Hi,

The Gnome Documentation Team is working on updating help to mallard docs.  We have a list of applications that still need their user docs converted to mallard. That list can be found here: http://live.gnome.org/DocumentationProject/Tasks/ApplicationHelp .

I would like to ask maintainers to have a look at the wiki.  If you have info for the wiki, please add it.  Or, if you know someone interested in working on your help, please introduce us to them (and maybe add their name to the wiki).

If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch with the Gnome Documentation Team.

Cheers,

Tiffany Antopolski

TARBALLS DUE: GNOME 2.91.5 Development Release

Hi,

So we ended up skipping the 2.91.4 release because of the bad timing,
and the fact that there were blocker bugs making this release not as
usable as it should have been.

This means that 2.91.5 has to rock! We don't want to live the same
horror show twice, do we? ;-) Obviously, this doesn't start in the best
way you could imagine since this tarballs due notice is a bit late; but
there are already some tarballs out there, which is cool! Let's build
something awesome!

Tarballs are due on Monday January 10th before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME
2.91.5 Development Release, which will be delivered on Wednesday.

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 2.91.5. 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:

Cheers,

Vincent

String and UI Change Announcement Period

Hi all,

We'll enter the String and UI Change Announcement Period at the end of
tomorrow. This means that starting on Tuesday:

  - all string changes must be announced to both gnome-i18n <at>  and
    gnome-doc-list <at> .

  - all user interface changes must be announced to gnome-doc-list <at> .

It probably makes sense at least for the shell team and for the people
working on the default theme to tell gnome-doc-list how much of the UI
can be expected to still change during that period. It'd be a shame to
have people starting to take many screenshots if they'll all be outdated
a few weeks after.

Thanks,

Vincent

GNOME 2.91.5 released!

GNOME 2.91.5 Development Release
================================

And here comes the first release of 2011. We decided to skip 2.91.4
because of various blockers that we found, and because people were not
available during the holidays to fix them quickly enough. So it's been a
long time since the last release, and I do think this release was worth
the wait. It's working quite well, and the rough edges we had for 3.0
are all disappearing with time, which is good! But of course, it's not
perfect yet :-) The good news is that we still have quite some time to
reach perfection. Yes, that's our goal!

You all know what you have to do now. Go download it. Go compile it. Go
test it. And go hack on it, document it, translate it, fix it.

To compile GNOME 2.91.5, 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/2.91.5/

The release notes that describe the changes between 2.91.3 and 2.91.5
are available. Go read them to learn all the goodness of this release:

core  - http://download.gnome.org/core/2.91/2.91.5/NEWS
apps  - http://download.gnome.org/apps/2.91/2.91.5/NEWS

The GNOME 2.91.5 release is available here:

core  sources - http://download.gnome.org/core/2.91/2.91.5/
apps  sources - http://download.gnome.org/apps/2.91/2.91.5/

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
--------------------------

This release is a snapshot of development code. Although it is buildable
and usable, it is primarily intended for testing and hacking purposes.
GNOME uses odd minor version numbers to indicate development status.

For more informations about 2.91, the full schedule and the official
module lists, please see our colorful 2.91 page on the wiki:
  http://www.gnome.org/start/unstable/

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

We hope you'll love it,

The GNOME Release Team

TARBALLS DUE: GNOME 2.91.6 Development Release

Hello all,

So here we are again, it was getting long, time for 2.91.6, we are
expecting your lovely tarballs for Monday! Also we'd like to note
that we formally enter the API/ABI Freeze (we know, GTK+ 3.0 should
be out there real soon now), and Feature Freeze.

Details on freezes: http://live.gnome.org/ReleasePlanning/Freezes

Tarballs are due on 2011-01-31 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 2.91.6
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 2.91.6. 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!
