Guido G nther: CrystalHD progress

Following up on my port of the crystalhd plugin to the gstreamer 1.0 api I realized that the CrystalHD repo is pretty dormant. After reading slomo's nice article about GStreamer and hardware integration and a short off list mail exchange I decided to split the GStreamer part out of the CrystalHD repo and to try to get the plugin into gst-plugins-bad. Since the kernel part is already in linux kernel's staging area there would not be much left in the repo except for the libcrystalhd library itself and the firmware blobs. So I split them out as well and started to clean them up a bit by moving it to autoconf/automake, dropping the need for a C++ compiler and adding symbol versioning among other things. So up to know video is still smooth with:
gst-launch-1.0 filesrc location=sample.mp4 ! decodebin ! xvimagesink
after jhbuilding up to gst-plugins-bad. There are #ifdefs for macosx and windows but I doubt they're functional but in case anybody is building libcrystalhd on these these platforms it'd be great to know if it still works. Should these efforts lead to the crystalhd plugin being merged into GStreamer getting the kernel driver out of staging would be a great next step. This blog is flattr enabled.

Emilio Pozuelo Monfort: Collaborative maintenance

The Debian Python Modules Team is discussing which DVCS to switch to from SVN. Ondrej Certik asked how to generate a list of commiters to the team s repository, so I looked at it and got this:

Here I m the 4th most committer :D And while I was on it, I thought I could do the same for the GNOME and GStreamer teams:

- Why do I have the full python-modules and pkg-gstreamer trees, if I have just one commit to DPMT, and don t even have commit access to the GStreamer team?
- If you don t want to seem like you have done less commits than you have actually done, don t change your alioth name when you become a DD ;) (hint: pox-guest and piotr in python-modules are the same person)
- If the switch to a new VCS was based on a vote where you have one vote per commit, the top 3 commiters in pkg-gnome could win the vote if they chosed the same! For python-apps it s the 4 top commiters, and the 7 ones for python-modules. pkg-gstreamer is a bit special :)

Romain Francoise: GNOME 2.22 in sid: check (mostly)

The status page speaks for itself: most of GNOME 2.22 is now available in sid. A few packages are being staged in experimental to avoid breaking too much stuff, and a few of the remaining missing pieces are waiting in NEW. Special thanks to Sebastian Dr ge who's done an incredible work with more than 90 uploads over the past week!

Jordi Mallach: GNOME 2.20 for Debian

My lack of posts lately left Planet readers without yet another yay, GNOME 2.20 released post. I'm sure nobody missed it. However, I can report what's going on in Debian regarding its packaging. The executive summary is: the GNOME team rocks, and having much of GNOME 2.20 available in sid on the very same day it was officially announced was possible thanks to the incredible work done by lool, Np237, slomo and other restless team members, who spent the summer tracking GNOME 2.19 releases and packaging them in experimental. To get a better view on what's left to do, you can use the 2.20 status page, which you'll see shows lots of green at this point. Some of the outstanding blockers are gtksourceview and the new epiphany-webkit binary stuck in NEW, which block gedit and epiphany, and of course, the initial mess that the buildds need to sort out to get the dependencies installed. The rest of red bits will continue trickling in unstable in the next few days. Beware of the new behaviour in control-center, which will by default use the DPI value provided by X. Some X drivers are still buggy and can provide bad values, which will cause bad font displays. If you're hit by this, you can force a DPI value in control-center, which should fix the issue. Also, you can read the relevant thread in our mailing list. Enjoy 2.20! Update: yeah, ftpmasters rock too, and epiphany hit incoming just a few hours after posting this entry. Yay ephy-webkit!

Jordi Mallach: Debian's GNOME 2.18: are we there yet?

The short answer is no, but as our status page easily reflects, there has been lots of work going on during the last two weeks, once etch's release unblocked the way to upload new versions to unstable. This post intends to resume the trend of updating on the status of GNOME in Debian, after we ended up deciding we'd ship etch with 2.14 for a number of reasons, most notably some complications with the GTK 2.10 transition at that time. You'll be able to find other related news items in Debian GNOME team's website. What has the Debian GNOME team up to during the last 6 months? Our first priority was to focus on unstable's GNOME 2.14 packages again, in an attempt to fix any outstanding remaining bugs from our packaging, and get them in the best shape possible to deliver a polished GNOME desktop for etch. I think the result is really good, and Debian's default GNOME desktop is both very usable and attractive. In parallel, the preparations for a complete set of GNOME 2.16 packages continued in our Subversion repository and kept appearing, little by little, in experimental. The most visible consequence of our 2.16 efforts translated into nobse's backport of 2.16 for etch, which can be found in the corresponding repository. And then, with etch deep frozen and nearly ready to be released, GNOME 2.18 was released, and of course the GNOME team didn't wait too much to start working on it. Our current status is looking good: the Developer Platform is already available in unstable, although buildd's are fighting the builds on various architectures. When the dust settles (GTK 2.10's landing has generated quite a big cloud; we have a list of packages that still haven't completed the GTK+ 2.10 transition), we'll be able to prepare and upload the more complex Desktop components like the panel, nautilus, evolution or control-center. Unstable users should probably be seeing daily progress on this front, so keep an eye on your package managers! Although Debian 4.0 released with an old version of GNOME, vast amounts of time and work have been invested to release it with the necessary backported fixes and enhancements. The newer GNOME versions have been available in Debian official ftp archives in very reasonable timeframes; this has only been possible thanks to the restless efforts of the (fortunately) growing Debian GNOME team members: giskard, feedback, HE, lool, np237, slomo, shaka, sjoerd, xaiki and not forgetting our incredible bug triager, svena. Thanks! On the behind the scenes department, it's a pleasure to report that Lo c Minier and Jordi Mallach very recently joined the GNOME Foundation's board of advisors in representation of the Debian Project, replacing Matthew Garrett, who has been representing us for the last few years until he left the project. Thanks, Matthew!

Antti-Juhani Kaijanaho: NaNoWriMo... strike that... IWriSloMo

I am taking part for the second time in the (Inter)National Novel-Writing Month. The goal is to write 50000 words in one month of novel-like prose, regardless of quality. Essentially, it is a group effort of producing novel first drafts in a fairly good pace. Seems to work for some people, but I'm lagging behind with no realistic hope of catching up. I am writing each day, but my output is on the order of 500 words a day, not the 1700 words a day that the official goal requires on average. So, I'd properly belong in the International Write Something Month (IWriSloMo), affectionally known as I Write in Slow Motion. The goal there is to produce 200-250 words of bad short fiction (bad, short and fiction being all optional) each day in one month. But I think I'll stick with NaNoWriMo - there's gotta be the losers, too, you know :) And I get a noticeable boost from being able to compete in my own weight class (I can order participants by word count, and I can try to up my position on that list:). My current minimum goal for each day is to restore myself to the first page of Finnish contestants. So far, I have been successful. So what am I writing? It is a Horatio Hornblower pastiche set in the 25th Century and the setting is space. I can hear you yawn, but hey, nobody said it was any good! :)
