TARBALLS DUE: GNOME 3.3.5

Hello all,

Live from snowy FOSDEM, here is your call for tarballs.

Tarballs are due on 2012-02-06 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.3.5
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 3.3.5. 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 3.3, the full schedule, the official
module lists and the proposed module lists, please see our colorful 3.3
page:
   http://www.gnome.org/start/unstable

For a quick overview of the GNOME schedule, please see:

Thanks,

        Fred

New GNOME sysadmin: Andrea Veri

We've added a new member to the GNOME sysadmin team: Andrea Veri.

Andrea has been handling the accounts queue for a very, very long time.
Furthermore, he's involved with the GNOME membership committee (they
handle the applications for GNOME foundation membership + elections).
And thus now a GNOME sysadmin.

Aside from GNOME, he also does stuff within the Fedora
sysadmin/infrastructure team, does some Fedora packaging and is a Debian
Developer.

Personally, looking forward to him still handling every single account
request. This next to cleaning up our infrastructure and documenting it :P

If you want to stalk him: http://people.gnome.org/~av/

TARBALLS DUE: GNOME 3.3.90

Hello all,

This is tarballs due time, but we're also hitting the big Freeze,
meaning API/ABI, UI and Feature Addition Freeze, as well as String
Change Announcement Period; new APIs must be fully documented, and
people start to assemble and write the release notes; exciting times.

Tarballs are due on 2012-02-20 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.3.90
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 3.3.90. If you are not able to

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

Slow database server (affects Bugzilla)

Response of the database server has been slow due to piwik
maintenance. This unfortunately is taking a very long time. The
slowness impacts the speed of Bugzilla as well as other sites relying on
the database server.

As piwik instance was not setup for a high traffic website, the
current maintenance is needed, though unsure how long it will still
last. Until that is over, please be patient with Bugzilla.

Ideas for Google Summer of Code 2012

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 26, 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. Bonus point if you add ideas this week as it
makes it easier for us to write the Summer of Code application for
GNOME.

So what should you do? Please visit [2] and enter your project ideas
under the "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 team hasn't been formed yet, so if you want
to be part of it, by all means, volunteer!

Cheers,
 The GNOME Google Summer of Code Administrators

GUADEC is the annual conference of the GNOME community, held in Europe
since 2000. GNOME is the Free Software project that drives the user
interfaces of many GNU/Linux-powered devices, ranging from smartphones
to laptops, or personal media centers. This get-together event is the
world's largest gathering of those involved with the free desktop or
mobile user interfaces. GUADEC 2012 is expected to draw hundreds of
attendees who will discuss and direct the future of the GNOME project.

Google groups BANNED from <at> gnome.org

In case people have an alias on  <at> gnome.org:
I banned  <at> googlegroups.com from sending mail to  <at> gnome.org. Spammers
setup an "Google Group", then send their spam via that group. Google
groups sends each message with a different "smtp from" / return-path, so
it is not easy to block this.

As Google has done absolutely nothing to block such behaviour, I have to
resort to completely banning  <at> googlegroups.com.

I've also banned a few spammers, but that is just usual maintenance.
