thomasvs: I had this "hearing stuff in people's voices while reading" thing too. There's nothing like reading libxml comments, and hearing DV's French accent in your head:)

As for your stories related to the GStreamer team, I really envy free software hackers who are part of a team. Sometimes I felt a bit lost and alone at GUADEC.

I loved gman's list of random "you had to be there" moments, so here are my additions:

  • "And none of them are properly documented" - maddog. "Except Emacs" - someone (maybe docpi) from the audience

  • Owen raising his hand, when murrayc asked who's used GTK+ before

  • "Spain is in Europe" - someone "helping" jdub

  • "Stand up like a man. I mean, man, stand up" - miguel, when DV made his first (but certainly not last:)) correction in someone's speech.

  • Emese's (from the Hungarian translation team) three-layered diagram of Seth's GNOME vision: GNOME - HAL - Linux

  • "I think it's Meta-city: Meta as in beyond, and sitty as in shitty. Thus: beyond shitty." - Ankh's ultimate argument in the MEtaCIty vs meTAcity debate

  • "The GNOME 2.0 roadmap basically is: 2.0.1: we're fucked. 2.0.2: we're fucked." - I can't remember if this was Havoc, or Owen
