We moved from the local Intel offices to the Dayananda Sagar Institutions today. This is where GNOME.Asia will be happening at the weekend. Registration for the event has been high, so we should have lots people at our talks (eek!)
Everyone at the hackfest seems to have been working hard. Lots of ‘release team stuff’ seems to have been happening. As someone who hasn’t been particularly exposed to our release process, it has been great to see the work and organisation that goes into ensuring the quality of GNOME releases first hand.
Marketing-wise, it has been an intensive three days. Me and Andreas have been busy working on the new gnome.org website (as has Vinicius from afar). There have been lots of productive disscussions about both design and content, and Allan Caeg has been making some excellent contributions in that regard. There is still a lot of work to do, but I’m already excited about the site.
The hackfest has been a great opportunity for members of the release and marketing teams to work together. We had a really useful session on the release notes this morning, and were able to do some planning for the release day itself this afternoon.
