When the pandemic lock downs started, my local Linux User Group started looking at video conferencing tools we could use to continue presenting talks and other events to members. We ended up adopting BigBlueButton: as well as being Open Source, it's focus on education made it well suited for presenting talks. It has the concept of a presenter role, and built in support for slides (it sends them to viewers as images, rather than another video stream).
Yesterday, a BoF was scheduled for discussion of distributed version control systems with GNOME. The BoF session did not end up really discussing the issues of what GNOME needs out of a revision control system, and some of the examples Federico used were a bit snarky.
We had a more productive meeting in the session afterwards where we went over some of the concrete goals for the system. The list from the blackboard was:
At GUADEC 2002 in Seville I gave a talk about the state of the Python
bindings for GTK and GNOME. At this point, I was recommending people
move off the old GTK 1.2 bindings, so this talk covered the process of
porting existing applications.
At GUADEC 2001 in Copenhagen, I gave a talk about the work I’d been
doing on PyGTK. In particular, it talked about the major rewrite to
build on top of ExtensionClass (a precursor of Python 2’s new style
classes), and the start of GTK 2.0 support.
