Notes:

I don't code. I wrote a shell script once, but it was very silly. I inflicted documentation and bug reports on various unsuspecting projects, but the majority of my time was spent with Gnome.

Ilan, you missed out options five and six:
  • Get on the cooker list or whatever the Mandrake beta litst is called and see whether anyone else has met this problem;
  • Report the bug to Mandrake, not to Advogato. It won't get fixed unless they know it's there, after all.
pjdowner, I can't get email to you via the address on your website. What's all this about a South Wales LUG? And Swansea? When?

My email is off my homepage which is in my info here. I hope it works :)

Advogato is a great place to read normally, but oh dear, now I see the right to arm bears is back. Just to support jschauma's point, I'll say that I live in a country with very strict gun laws: and I don't feel any of my rights are being infringed, I don't feel unsafe, and I seem to recall that it was a national petition (google for the Snowdrop petition) five years ago which led to the tightening of the gun laws.

In other advogato delights, someone talks about how he wants to screw someone from his class, presumably assuming she doesn't read this and that even if they started going out she wouldn't start reading his diary; and someone else thinks that a poster about "even if you win, you're still retarded" worth linking to. There are some surprisingly elitist attitudes around here. Mental handicap is something for jokes. The need for gun rights is apparently justified in part by the number of psychotics running around the streets (having worked in an acute admissions ward of a psychie hospital, I find this a little ill-informed); kids who kill should be locked up for life rather than any attempt at rehabilitation made (that's the best a civilised society can do? Remove people from itself? Not do something about stopping it from recurring?), parents who don't fit someone's personal criteria should be neutered so they can't breed, and several other delightful sentiments. It seems almost as though... no. I don't think I'll go there.

Ilan, what is your problem with keyboard navigation of a GUI?

Finally, is it only I, or are other people seeing advogato refuse to respond increasingly often? Heading to the site, following internal links and reloading pages here often seem to result in... well, nothing. It no talk. I put it down initially to other things, but I begin to think it's the advogato site. What is the traffic on it? How many hits does the recent diary entries page get?

Oh look. Another run through the recent arrivals.

Ten people with no information. One with a name and nothing more. Two with information that's not enough to certify on. That leaves eight. Hello, Google...

misa's name shows up all over rpmfind. pop has a vim/mutt script and an opportunity to practise my French :) garett, ts, geekd and ahvezda all have links to free software straightaway. mdz is a Debian maintainer. I suspect someone with a better appreciation of what's involved should re-certify the latter two. Way over my head. I suspect those are journeyer-level things, but I don't know.

Then some not-sures. I am not sure whether surveys count, and I don't know what else grex does. I followed the links from hawk but they only refer to a game. I can't find it anywhere. Googling on the game produces only references to it or dead links. I need to find my dictionary to know what to make of the site hns linked to. And finally, there's nile and dloo. I recall the dloo announcement on Gnotices, but I haven't seen anything since. So I'm a bit stuck there.

My certificates are very low, I know. To those people who feel affronted: the usual disclaimer. I can't judge other people's code. If I know something about the project or the person then I can make a guess on where they might rank. So some people get higher ratings because I know enough about them. I don't know the projects that came up following links in this lot. With luck, someone who understands these things will follow the same links and adjust certifications accordingly.

As to people complaining about certification or lack of them, please please please provide links to contributions that are out there. I spend a few hours (not much, but more than some) trying to certify new arrivals. I try very hard to find a reason to certify someone that is in line with the guidelines. Seeing people complained that they are not certified when I've just finished the latest run through irks me, frankly.

If you want to fork Gnome, Ilan, go right ahead. But until I see a package out there I can download or a HOWTO I can read, I can't certify someone who largely complains about what's wrong with things without explaining to the uninitiated (that's me) what would be right, and how to fix the wrongness. Deven, all I found on your pages was articles from a few years ago (the certs guidelines suggest evaluations should cover the work done in the last year) and a conferencing system which didn't have much info about it. It's also not the number of certificates you have that swings it. It's whether any of those people are close enough to the trust root for their appraisals to make a difference. Well, as I understand the write-up of the trust metric anyway. I dropped maths at 17, and I got lost in the trust metric write-up as soon as I saw "each certificate is a directed edge". Um. Right. But I assume hackers know more maths than I do.

Oh yes. And I should be an apprentice, but I can't change what other people put. (If you put higher, please reconsider.)

I think that's it for another month. I shall return to lurking and enjoying the threads of conversation that meander through the recentlog page.

DV, whatever are you talking about when you compare sheep and goats and suggest goats win out? Just look at my sheep and dare to compare it with that silly GEGL.

Hmph!

Oh yes, the sheep is the one in the red hat, thank you.

(Thanks to Jody for the photograph.)

That said, your analogy is rather good. But my sheep would like an apology :)
