Haven't posed here for a while ...
Put out a few releases of PyORBit. Seems to work quite well, although it
still needs some more work. CVS gnome-python is already using it, but I
haven't put out any tarballs yet (which I should do -- it has been too
long since the last releases).
I started working on another small GNOME package a few weeks ago: a set
of tools to help manage fonts on
fontconfig based GNOME systems (such as
GNOME 2.1.x and Red Hat 8.0). Here are a few screenshots of what it can
The thumbnailing only works if you have Nautilus 2.1, but the rest works
on vanila RH8. What the screenshots don't show is that the
folder can also be used to install fonts via drag and drop (it puts the
~/.fonts, which is in the default fontconfig search path).
Even though I have only been hacking on it for a while, fontilus has
already become fairly popular. There are packages in Mandrake Cooker, RH
Rawhide and Debian Unstable.
