Rejuvenating your release team

Tuesday, April 19, 2011 10:21 - GNOME

Vincent is taking his release team hat off and dropped it on my head. I am a bit sad because the real blue hat has been lost, but I am very happy to be here at this time, GNOME 3 is out, people loves it.

For 3.2 we will continue to have our work driven by design, and we are making adjustments to our schedule and processes to keep on going with a global vision, there have been a few emails about feature planning on desktop-devel-list, we will expand on that soon, but for now, I wanted this post to give all my thanks to Vincent Untz (plenty of time for icecreams now), Lucas Rocha (don't forget to add ajax support to the board), and Frédéric Crozat (we will continue harassing you for live usb images), who are leaving the team, and to welcome our new members,

  • Luca Ferreti, he was a team member already but Vincent gave him a trainee badge as no one was leaving at that time; he has already been helping with releases;
  • Javier Jardón, he arrived on #gnome-love someday, got hooked fixing build failures and went on to lead wide goals to improve our modules, and more;
  • Alejandro Piñeiro Iglesias, I met him in the build brigade, but really he is now an accessibility guy, and his expertise in the domain will be immensely valuable;
  • Colin Walters, shell developer, involved with gobject introspection from the beginning, his latest feat has been to push for a standalone spidermonkey release from our friends in Mozilla.

Let's now go to 3.2, and beyond!

Congrats on your new responsibility and the new team! Also a bit sad to see Vincent go, but I guess it has been a long thought out decision. Hopefully we will all meet again next year somewhere in Asia and I already look forward to it!

I've no doubt you'll do a great job. Thank you for your efforts to make GNOME awesome.

Since you now hold authority over Gnome, may I suggest you read press reviews of Gnome 3.0? And user comments? They paint a different picture of the 3.0 release than "people loves it". Addressing these concerns could prove beneficial.
