So, I’ve just noticed that some of the Google HOPG tasks involve updating the HIG screenshots. I don’t know if the other HIG authors were alerted to this, but I certainly wasn’t.
Apart from a degree of discourtesy to the HIG authors, this oversight is surely particularly unhelpful to the people who claimed the tasks, as the maintainers who will ultimately decide if their work is fit for inclusion have not been around to offer advice as they were going along.
Also, FWIW, the draft version of the HIG already has several updated screenshots in it, so hopefully nobody has wasted their time duplicating those. I’ll review what I can this week, but this is my last working week this year and I have other stuff taking priority. So maybe Bryan, Seth, Anna etc. could help out here too, if they’re reading 🙂
Was slightly surprised to find a Google Summer of Code 2007 t-shirt in the mail this morning– had forgotten I’d even signed up as a mentor. Obviously my services weren’t required this year, which is probably no bad thing for the would-be protégé.
