The suggestion of designing some UI patterns for GNOME came up in tigert’s talk on Monday… I mentioned at the time that we’d already started working on this, so just for the record, here’s the list.You’ll notice we haven’t actually done any mockups yet, so feel free to start proposing some designs, or just add anything to the list that you think would be useful.
Hardly any email waiting for me at all, this morning… always a bad sign, means I’ll have to do some work instead. (One of the few was to inform me my actress friend in England has started seeing a new bloke she doesn’t fancy– if I’d known that was her type I’d have asked her out years ago!)
The first public draft of the HIG will apparently be released for review later today. Fortunately I’ve only just picked up my flameproof suit from the dry cleaners.
Bought my first Christmas present at the weekend, as it has to go to America– I promise not to think about Christmas again until about December 17th. Saturday also saw Scotland soundly thrashed by the All Blacks, and Motherwell winning again. The latter is becoming a worrying habit.
Plans to write the GNOME Human Interface Guidelines (mini-edition) continue apace, and we’ve now all agreed who’s writing what. I’ve hastily been trying to learn DocBook in preparation for this monumental task, by converting my latest draft of the GNOME Accessibility Guide. “Trivial” and “not” are two words that spring to mind.
*Sigh* Bit of a crummy old time at the moment, what with one thing and another, and the worst is probably yet to come…
On the other hand, sounds like this month’s round of politics has left me unsoiled, and my work on the GNOME accessibility guidelines and Human Interface Guidelines can continue unabated. Whether or not this turns out to be a good thing for either the community or my sanity remains to be seen :o)
