On the non-existence of shirts

* patoh wants a metacity shirt! <marnanel> patoh: we don’t have a logo or a home page and you want shirts?! :) <patoh> marnanel: sure you have a logo, the default window icon! <marnanel> patoh: then you are wearing a metacity shirt if you go naked!

2008-02-27: Metacity Journal

When things are this busy I should be doing these daily. Bugs We reported earlier, gentle reader, that the rounded corners preview GNOME bug 460018 was solved in both trunk and the gnome-2-22 branch by Thomas Wood. We made probably the last release of 2.21 specially to include the patch . GNOME bug 490668 – one […]

2008-02-20: Metacity Journal (with thanks to Rio!)

Rio is helping me edit the Metacity Journal tonight. Thanks, Rio! Bugs It’s been a busy couple of days ! GNOME bug 106249 — Matthias comes up with a working patch for the skip_taskbar problem GNOME bug 138290 — Rob thought window placement had its problems, but Thomas wasn’t sure what they were; we need to […]

Bug hitlist (again)

Tonight or soon : GNOME bug 448183 – moving and resizing at once is broken + thos’s patch about rounded corners on the mailing list

2008-02-18: the journal becomes a little more manageable

You know, I miss the little photographs of pubs we used to have when I did it by hand. I will look into adding those into the script. Bugzilla Thomas closed a ton of bugs. The script has not yet been fixed to make the output beautiful and it would take ages to write it […]

2008-02-17: just as much of a journey of discovery for me as it is for you

Over the last few months we’ve had a recurring feature called the Metacity Journal. Every day or so we listed bug activity, checkins, and mentions in the press and other people’s blogs. However, it took about half an hour or more for your chronicler to collate all this information every morning, and it became apparent […]

My goals for 2.23

These are just my (Thomas’s) thoughts; I haven’t discussed them with the others yet. A decent set of regression tests that gets run every night. (This is under development.) Documentation of every function and struct. No outstanding bugs in the bug queue; everything needs to be resolved (maybe wontfix), be being worked on, be scheduled […]

Bug hit list

Thomas’s bug queue for the next few days : GNOME bug 515152 – done GNOME bug 515402 – transcription error; find correct bug GNOME bug 509165 – visibility rules are more complex than I can deal with; comment this and find an answer GNOME bug 151818 – needs a separate blog post to itself (FIXME) GNOME […]

2.22 branched

Metacity has been branched for the upcoming 2.22 release. The relevant teams are aware. Development continues on trunk (which is the upcoming 2.23).

Patch wrangler

While I was committing release-wrangler.py, I thought I’d also include patch-wrangler.py, which (once given a patch number) downloads Metacity trunk, applies the patch, configures, and makes. It would be better if it could figure out the project name given the patch so that it was usable on other projects, which is possible through scraping bugzilla, […]
