ViewCVS After the breakin at the gnome.org web server, the CVS server were moved over to the new server HP donated. However, the LXR and Bonsai tools weren’t considered as high a priority, so have not been restored yet. Since it was easier to set up than either LXR or Bonsai, I set up ViewCVS […]


Made some changes to the way “jhbuild bootstrap” works. Whereas previously bootstrap would check to see if each required build tool was installed by the distro and only build the tools that were missing, it now builds all the tools.

Started another batch of beer yesterday. This time I mixed in a kilogram of honey (replacing some of the sugar), so it will be interesting to see how this turns out. The bubbles coming out of the airlock smell fairly different, so it will hopefully go okay. Merged some patches from various people into my […]
