Got caught up on some packaging today. sword 1.5.7 with new lib version got accepted and promptly found that libcurl had changed so half the buildds failed. uploaded 1.5.7-2 to cope with that. Uploaded latest BibleTime and GnomeSword as well.

Might package the Gentium font for non-free, (or for wherever non-free ends up if/when it gets removed from Debian.


trying to decide what to try now, and what questions I need to ask about where to get pango to decide to call a silgraphite module shaper.

Planet Advogato?

Hmmm, don't know if anyone is going to read this but Planet Debian and Planet Gnome are looking pretty good now and have RSS feeds (so I can use Straw or whatever :) to get them)

Is there any chance anyone could make a Planet Advogato that could provide a feed of recent diary entries, preferably on a separate server since Advogato seems a bit slow from here sometimes?

P.S. gnome-blog make this blogging so easy even I can manage to say something.

Got SILGraphite font compiler running on macosx today so thats a little bit of progress. Now we just need someone to write something so that font developers can write stuff once and generate Graphite, OpenType and AAT font capabilities from one source.

KDE on MacOSX is looking good. Maybe I'll have a go at getting BibleTime running on it soon.
