2007-11-27’s not-quite-a-journal

Life is still hectic for the maintainers this week, so this will be a short post.

On that theme , GNOME bug 468075, about a problem with vertical maximisation (which has been said to be a simple, reproducible bug, although it’s about a feature that most users don’t know exists) is not yet fixed. Someone complained that it raises the question of whether Metacity is still maintained. We are here, though; we’re just doing the best we can with the resources we have. Help is always welcome.

GNOME bug 500047 was a request to add the “busy cursor” when Metacity starts an application in response to a keystroke. This requires using startup-notification, which makes it a dupe of GNOME bug 114384 (that one’s been around a while; we should bump up the urgency).

Apparently we reached GNOME bug 500000 the other night, though it was actually a dupe of GNOME bug 500002.
