WebKitGTK+ Hackfest – Day Zero

Arrived yesterday night to Coruña for the WebKitGTK+ hackfest, a couple of hours before Gustavo did. Today he and I kicked off the day zero of the hackfest, before everybody arrives starting tomorrow.

We spent the whole day hacking on form login/password saving, and despite some issues with GNOME keyring being unhappy and dying on us, I can say we made good progress for one day of work:


This is epiphany/webkit master auto-filling my twitter.com login/password after launch, which as some people know is one of our last nasty regressions. There’s still a few things to do, but I’m confident about landing this before we leave Spain. Also, for those of you not following our development closely, the screenshot also shows the twitter favicon, since Gustavo recently fixed our favicon support in master.

Later today, Álex and Philippe joined us. Álex continued working in a tough accessibility bug in WebKitGTK+ he’s been fighting with, and Philippe arrived just in time for a nice dinner downtown. Not bad for one day, considering we were even not supposed to be here today!

    Awesome guys. Hopefully one of those hackers hard at work is making webkit respect my emacs gtk key-theme 😉

    You’re my heroes!

    p.s.: I can see the wifi password in Berto’s picture… too bad the signal is not strong enough 1000kms away 🙂

  9. Berto says:

    pochu: lol !! I hadn’t noticed that.

    It’s a dedicated wifi network for the hackfest with a temporary password anyway 😉

    But if you come here we’ll let you connect to the internet for free 🙂
