Weekly Report : Week of 2010-11-14

This week has been yet another adventure in my little part of the world. I’ve primarily only been able to do regular maintenance on the GNOME Infrastructure, not having been able to make time for any of the larger projects or tasks on my list. I’ve got a few that I’m going to try and find time to tackle today, but currently my schedule is not entirely up to me.

For those that don’t know (which is very likely all but one or two of you), my wife and I are expecting our third child any day now. The actual due date isn’t until December, but she’s been put on strict bed-rest for the past two weeks to try and prolong the pregnancy as long as possible. We doubt very much we’ll make it until December, and we’ve already been to labor and delivery at the hospital twice now. Luckily they’ve been able to calm things down and send us home. Any any case, we’ve had a few scares that the baby will come too early, so I’ve needed to take on a lot more responsibilities at home.

As I mentioned, primarily I’ve only been able to tackle everyday maintenance tickets. Account creations, mailing list management, and other low-hanging fruit. To my count I have closed about a half-dozen RT tickets (accounts requests and updates). I’ve also worked recently with the marketing team to put something in place for a yet-to-be-announced GNOME 3.x related project. Stay tuned for those details this next week.

If I’m able to get some backup (read: a babysitter) for a few hours I’ve got a few projects I think I can tackle. I hope to be able to get them finished today or tomorrow. We’ll see.

Could be that the next time I report I’ll have a new addition. Here’s hoping that isn’t the case.. yet.
