Subject: Gconf compiled without ORBit support by default
Date: 2011-08-10 13:20:24 GMT
Hello,

This mail is to notice that GConf is compiled without ORBit support by
default in our 3.2 modulesets [1]. This is what major distributions
are already doing for their next major releases.

This also means that the deprecated ORBit2 and libIDL have been
removed from our moduleset.

Regards,

TARBALLS DUE: GNOME 3.1.5 unstable release (and some freeze)

Hello all,

I missed all of you, I am sure you had a great time at desktop summit,
but the fun is not over, it's tarball time again! Roll your editors,
polish your NEWS files, 3.1.5 is coming.

Once it's out, we will enter the API/ABI freeze and the feature
freeze. If you are not sure what they are about exactly there is this
page for you: http://live.gnome.org/ReleasePlanning/Freezes (and you
should certainly not hesitate to ask).

Tarballs are due on 2011-08-15 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.1.5
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 3.1.5. 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!

No API or ABI changes should be made in the platform libraries. For
instance, no new functions, no changed function signatures or struct
fields.  This provides a stable development platform for the rest of
the schedule.  There should usually be a "Slushy" API/ABI Freeze
before the Hard API/ABI Freeze, to encourage developers to think about
API problems while they have a chance to correct them.  API freeze is
not required for non-platform libraries, but is recommended.

For more information about 3.1, the full schedule, the official

Help wanted: GNOME 3.1 + 3.2 live images

For the release of GNOME 3.0 we've released live USB and CD images based
on Fedora and openSUSE. These can be downloaded at
http://gnome3.org/tryit.html. I'd like one or more volunteers to make
such images available for the various development and final release of
GNOME 3.2. Anyone with experience with OBS / Fedora equivalent or
willing to get this experience please contact the release team at
release-team@...

Note: Just looking for anyone with packaging + image making experience.
It does not matter if you're already involved within GNOME; git access
to update gnome3.org can easily be setup.

Postponing 3.1.90 by one week

As a quick followup to the 3.1.5 announcement, the release team had a
quick discussion and we agreed that while many features are already in
we also want to be sure features are not being blocked as hackers were
busy discussing the future of GNOME at the Desktop Summit and didn't
all get the features they planned reviewed and integrated on time.

We will therefore delay the release of the first beta of GNOME 3.2 by
a week, it is now scheduled on for August 31st, and the feature freeze
will take effect after that release.

The other freeze and release dates are still effective, and we do not
expect other changes in the schedule.

Keep on hacking,

        Fred

Git module policy change: DOAP files

Policy change regarding DOAP files in git modules:
Having a $MODULE.doap file in the master branch is now mandatory for all
git modules. Up to now, the MAINTAINERS file was used as a fallback.

This should not affect too many active modules. Additionally,
translation commits are still allowed even if there isn't a DOAP file.

The modules which might be affected by this change are listed in:
  http://git.gnome.org/browse/?s=idle
  (modules with the message: "Please create %s.doap")

Instructions for creating a DOAP file:
  http://live.gnome.org/MaintainersCorner#maintainers

Additionally, I've made the DOAP file checker also check for valid
usernames. This check is only done if you change/add a DOAP file.

Tarballs are due on 2011-08-29 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.1.90
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

please send a mail to the release team and we'll find someone to roll

Also we will be entering the UI Freeze, no UI changes may be made at
all without confirmation from the release team and notification to the
documentation team.

For concerned modules, to not forget that new APIs must be fully
documented.

And we will start writing the release notes, module owners, make sure
