Call for Summer of Code ideas

Hiya GNOME lovers!

It's that time of the year again: Google's Summer of Code is
approaching. We are in the midst of preparing it all [1] but we need
your help by submitting great project ideas. Student proposals will
start to roll in on March 28, but we'd like to make sure there are
plenty of projects from them to choose from and have mentors ready to
volunteer their time.

So what should you do? Please visit [2] and enter your project ideas
under the "Other Ideas" section.  A committee will be formed up
later to triage the ideas prior to the opening of the proposal period.

If you would like to volunteer your time to mentor but don't have a
project idea, surf over and claim one.  Mentoring is an awesome way to
get more involved with the community and introduce someone to it.

If you would like to throw your hat in the ring for the triaging or
selection committees and other GSoC related tasks, pop on over to
#soc-admin, join the soc-mentors-list and let one of the
administrators for the program know you want to be involved in making
GNOME rock.

This year's administrators are Vincent Untz, Ruben Vermeersch, Christophe
Fergeau and Daniel Siegel.

Cheers,
  The GNOME Google Summer of Code Administrators

One more important step towards the great GNOME 3 release! It's pretty

So, what are you waiting for? Download it! Build it! Test it! Break it!

To compile GNOME 2.91.91, you can the jhbuild [1] modulesets [2] (which
use the exact tarball versions from the official release):

GUADEC/Desktop Summit CFP ends in one week!

Heya,

Just wanted to remind everybody that the GUADEC/Desktop Summit CFP ends
next friday! Make sure to submit your proposals quickly, before it is
too late! Berlin in summer is fantastic, you don't want to miss that, do
you?

First, read the CFP text:

        https://www.desktopsummit.org/cfp

And then, submit your talk proposal:

        https://www.desktopsummit.org/submit

Sorry for the KDE identity requirement. The DS web team is short on
manpower and this was the easiest way to get things up and running.

Thanks,

Lennart

TARBALLS DUE: GNOME 2.91.92 Release Candidate (and CODE FREEZE)

Hello all!

3.0 is there, over the corner, we will get there real soon now, we are
just one release candidate away. And we need tarballs for this release
candidate. Polished tarballs. Shining tarballs. And tarballs uploaded
on time, of course.

After this round of tarball we will be entering Hard Code Freeze, code
changes will have to go through the release team, we are making an
exception for the (shrinking, yeah!) list of blocker bugs, and we will
make other exceptions if necessary. In case of anything major, just
ask us and we will be really fast in answering.

The Hard Code Freeze is a late freeze to avoid sudden last-minute
accidents which could risk the stability that should have been reached
at this point.  No source code changes are allowed without approval
from the release team, but translation and documentation should
continue. Simple build fixes are, of course, allowed without asking.

So the tarballs, they are due on 2011-03-21 before 23:59 UTC for the
GNOME 2.91.92 rc 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 2.91.92.
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

Mango password reset

Mail is intended for maintainers and language coordinators.

Mango is the system which you'll have to use to approve an account
request. It'll email you automatically when you need to do that.

Up to now, it would only reset the Mango password once.

To reset your Mango password, do the following:
  ssh -l $uid mango.gnome.org mango

It'll give you a new random password each time you use it.

Note: There are some protections in place. If it doesn't reset the
password for you, ask for a reset at:
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=sysadmin&component=mango

Note2: Your Mango password also allows you to use the jabber service
(jabber.gnome.org, username is same as git/mango/etc). Please *enforce*
SSL/TLS. Do NOT allow plain text auth! This is only intended for
foundation members.

Re: Call for Summer of Code ideas

Hi all,

Good news: GNOME has been accepted as a mentoring organization for GSoC
2011, woo :-)

If you want to be a mentor, please apply with the following form:
  http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/mentor/request/google/gsoc2011/gnome

Also, it's not too late to add ideas to the wiki page, see Christophe's
mail below. I'm sure we can have many more GNOME 3-related ideas!

Cheers,

Vincent

Re: Call for Summer of Code ideas

Hi Vincent,

I click on below link, but see a message below:

We have temporarily disabled the creation of new requests and invites in preparation of the launch of the new UI for Melange later this week.

Requests made before this date can still be accepted and processed, but will be deleted when the new UI is launched.

If you have questions about this, please ask in #melange on freenode, or send an email to our mailing list at melange-soc-/JYPxA39Uh5TLH3MbocFFw@public.gmane.org.


So, we will wait for the new UI ?

BTW, I have already add my idea on the wiki.

The error you get is expected, here is an excerpt from the email that was
sent to google soc mailing list:

"We have temporarily disabled the creation of new requests and invites
in preparation of the launch of the new UI for Melange later this
week. This means that no new mentors can be invited until then. The
new UI will be deployed before the student application period starts
though, so hopefully this will not be too much of a problem. "

So we have to wait :(

hardware maintenance

Everyone -

As a heads up, the main GNOME database server is currently down for
emergency maintenance to address the issue we had yesterday. The
on-site technician is there doing his magic to make sure (let's hope!)
that this doesn't happen again.

Our apologies that this wasn't properly announced beforehand.

We expect the database server, as well as affected services (bugzilla,
etc), to be back online within an hour or so.

Thank you for your patience.
