No Software Patents

Due to the directive validating Software
Patents
that will be voted this 1rst September at the European Parliament,
a lot of people from Hispalinux
have decided to protest by closing
their websites
. This is for supporting the real demonstration
that will take place next Wednesday 27th August, in Brussels.



GNOME-DB

Today we have frozen both libgda and libgnomedb for the 1.0 release in a couple of
weeks. I hope the patch review thing works ok here, as it has done for Evolution.
Also, as we speak, GNOME-DB
site
has been closed until the 27th, for the demonstration against
software patents.
