Small delay for 3.5.3 release

Hi,

the 3.5.3 release will be a little late, in order to ship a working
and checked version of folks library (specifically its
evolution-data-server backend).
See https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=679009

Plus, here is a curious build issue against caribou, see
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=678973

Cheers,
Luca

DOWNTIME: blogs, extensions, bugzilla

Hi,

I am going to migrate the following databases back to our main Mysql 
machine (drawable):

- blogs.gnome.org
- extensions.gnome.org
- bugzilla.gnome.org

Those are currently hosted on a backup machine we used after 
drawable's RAID failure around two weeks ago. The machine has been 
fixed and the faulty hardware parts have been fixed by IBM. 
(everything seems to be back to normality and the I/O tests we ran 
looked fine)

I'll shutdown the above services to prevent any data loss during the 
migration, the maintenance will start in a few minutes as I luckily 
found some free time this evening for the migration to take place.

Thanks for your patience,

Andrea

GNOME 3.5.2 development release

Here is the second checkpoint on the way towards GNOME 3.6. This is
still an early development release, but we are starting to see the
first signs [1] of new features.
If this gets you excited, you should go ahead and download this
release, build it, test it and let us know how  you like it. We have
much more planned for 3.6 [2], so make sure to check in again for
3.5.3.

[2] http://live.gnome.org/ThreePointFive/Features

To compile GNOME 3.5.2, you can the jhbuild [2] modulesets [3] (which
use the exact tarball versions from the official release):

 [1] http://library.gnome.org/devel/jhbuild/
 [2] http://download.gnome.org/teams/releng/3.5.2/

To study the detailed changed between the previous 3.5.1 release and
this release, go here:

announce them when they are ready.

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!

Database's machine DOWN

Hi,

we applied today a few updates on our main Mysql host (drawable) and a 
faulty reboot prevents the machine to get up again.

We've contacted the Red Hat IT already and hopefully the issue will be 
fixed anytime soon. (no ETA though)

The services affected:

- blogs.gnome.org
- bugzilla.gnome.org
- extensions.gnome.org

I will send out another mail when everything will be back to 
normality.

Thanks for your patience,

Andrea

TARBALLS DUE: GNOME 3.4.2

Hello all,

It's time to get off your development branch for a bit, contemplate
the tenacious work of our translators, cheer on our documentation
team, remind yourself of the important fixes you cherry picked, write
a nice entry to your NEWS file, and upload a nice new stable tarball.

Tarballs are due on 2012-05-14 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.4.2
stable 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 3.4.2. 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 3.5, the full schedule, the official
module lists and the proposed module lists, please see our colorful 3.5

Welcome interns!

Hi all,

On Monday GNOME accepted 29 Google Summer of Code interns and 10 Outreach Program for Women interns! All the
interns made a contribution to the project they were applying to work on and almost all were connected to
their mentors during the application process. We are thrilled to have these talented and dedicated
contributors have a chance to spend the whole summer working on GNOME! Thanks to Google, Mozilla,
Collabora, Red Hat, the Free Software Foundation, and the GNOME Foundation for making these internships possible!

Thank you to all the mentors who helped the applicants along the way and will guide the participants this
summer! Everyone, please help out mentors from your project by also helping the participants when possible.

Because we are closing the 3.6 feature proposal period, it would be great if mentors consider proposing the
planned work as a 3.6 feature. If your intern’s proposal is about a well-defined user-visible feature,
the student is an experienced GNOME contributor, and/or you are dedicated to spend part of your time
working on the feature, please propose it for 3.6.

Below, is the list of all the interns’ projects. The ones without a link are OPW projects. The interns will
blog about their work on Planet GNOME throughout the summer.

Thanks to everyone and welcome to the interns!
Marina, on behalf of GSoC and OPW admins
