TARBALLS DUE: GNOME 3.9.3

Hello all,

Let's continue our work towards 3.10 with a new milestone; next week
we're releasing 3.9.3 and we need your tarballs, get them ready!

Tarballs are due on 2013-06-17 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.9.3
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 3.9.3. 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 3.9, the full schedule, the official
module lists and the proposed module lists, please see our colorful 3.9
page:
   http://www.gnome.org/start/unstable

GNOME 3.9.2

Hallo!

GNOME 3.9 development is getting underway, with the 3.9.2 snapshot
that is marking the second release of this development cycle [1].
Major changes in this release include:

- First GNOME release without any GConf dependency; Nice to see one of
  the GNOME 3 cleanup goals [2] achieved :)

A slight complication is that some modules (eog, totem, gedit) doesnt
build because a
problem with the libpeas release. For sure this will be fixed in the
next development release

To compile GNOME 3.9.2, you can use the jhbuild [3] modulesets
published by the release team [4] (which use the exact tarball
versions from the official release).

The release notes that describe the changes between 3.9.1 and 3.9.2
are available. Go read them to learn what's new in this release:

ANNOUNCE: New mailing list for Infrastructure-related announcements

Hi,

lately I've been thinking about what could be the best way to announce Infrastructure-related maintenances, downtimes, outages. As of now I kept sending my mails to multiple mailing lists at once (foundation-list, desktop-devel-list, devel-announce-list) but I feel that wasn't the best way to achieve my goal.

As of today, a new mailing list exists for these kind of announces [1], someone could argue that this is yet-another-mailing-list but I'm completely sure that having a specific and targeted mailing list will definitely help everyone out. The improvements:

1. subscribing to the new list will make sure that you don't lose any maintenance, downtime, outage announcement
2. you can track when a specific maintenance will happen or has happened in the past and what was done.
3. the GNOME Sysadmin team has finally a place to send its announcements to making sure they reach the wider audience as possible.

Have an awesome day and please take a little minute to subscribe to the new list.

GUADEC Call for Participation

GUADEC is the annual conference of the GNOME community, held in Europe
since 2000. GNOME is a free software project which drives user
interfaces of many GNU/Linux-powered devices, ranging from smartphones
to laptops and personal media centers. GUADEC is the world's largest
gathering of users and developers who are involved with the free
desktop and mobile user interfaces. GUADEC is expected to draw
hundreds of attendees who will discuss and direct the future of the
GNOME project. Developers, artists, translators, users, and
representatives from government, education, and businesses, and anyone
else who shares an interest are welcome.

GUADEC 2013 will be held in Brno, Czech Republic, a city which has
played host to several other successful GNOME-related hackfests in the
past. The conference will be held August 1st to 8th, with extra days
available after the core conference for hackfests and meetings.

The schedule of the conference mirrors the ongoing development of the
GNOME project:

  • Design of the core user experience (core applications, shell, toolkit)
  • Design of the developer experience (tools, documentation, services)
  • Integration and extension of the operating system plumbings into the core UX
  • Application development and deployment
  • Integration of web technologies into the GNOME user experience
  • Improving the user experience on different form factors
  • Outreach to new contributors
  • Organization and governance of the project

Submissions that do not fit into these categories are also welcome,
provided that they are relevant or inspirational to the GNOME
community.

The Call for Participation for GUADEC 2013 has the following timeline:

  1. Saturday, April 27h: Deadline for submission of abstracts
  2. Saturday, May 4th: Notification of speakers
  3. August 1st to 8th: The conference takes place in Brno, Czech Republic

Please submit your proposals before April 27th through the online
submission system. Presentations will be reviewed by the program
committee between the 28th of April and 4th of May.

A separate call for lightning talks will be issued in April. If you
are interested in organizing a workshop session, BoF or project room
during the second part of GUADEC, please wait until the relevant call
for participation is made.

The program committee is looking forward to your submissions to
participate in GUADEC 2013 and contributing to turn the event into a
large success. In case of questions regarding the Call for
Participation, please contact the program committee at
guadec-papers <at> gnome.org. For general questions regarding the
