My GUP to-do list

  • 1st decent draft of notification area guidelines (I have one in a HIG bug, but I need to go over it, comments made on it, and Mark's proposal that seems to have slipped from view.)
  • 2nd draft of Notification Area Preferences proposal
  • 2nd draft of window list proposal
  • 3rd draft of Find and Replace dialogs proposal
  • Draft power management control panel proposal (The one on Windows really sucks. It's something to avoid.)
  • Draft language/input/keyboard control panel proposal
  • Check the HIG bugs and maybe do something about them.
  • Maybe knock off a few UI reviews. Maybe my hair is short enough now so that I can't pull it all out. (Mumble something about not being able to grab a scrap from a garbage can and say, "No. Like this.")
  • Finally take the time to write the big frickin' huge document describing a complete user model for the GNOME which I could present in person on a napkin. (Curse the lack of "Oh, I get it!"-cues. Bemoan the state of the non-(but should be)-obvious)
  • Think of more things to put on this list to make the point that even though I suffer from recurrent major depression and, at the moment, post traumatic stress disorder, I am doing something other than complaining and cursing the broken 'B' key on my laptop.

Other software to-do's

  • Think of a better name than "WordSense" for my WordNet interface. (It's better than the first name: gwordnet)
  • Write libgwn so I don't have to depend on libwn
  • Just pick one of the possible APIs to the X-selection-based remote control, and finish the damn thing.
  • Figure out how to auto-tool-ize it so people don't whine about my handwritten Makefile
  • Release the damn thing this time
  • Curse more in code comments so I don't do it on to-do lists

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
