Almost time to leave debconf5... it was a wonderful time. It's always very good for me to be among the amazing people that make this Project's existance possible. Talking, going around, dancing, doing sauna, listening to talks, hacking: it was such a good time.

Last night at sauna I, Herman, Joey Hess and Gunnar Wolf and some other people I can't remember =P set up the Sauna Cabal. We've decided to make sauna a requirement for choosing the place for debconf after 2007. Sauna will need to provide a 'laptop area' with high speed networking so that those who are enjoying the sauna will be able to hack and chat.*

It's sad to feel this 'end of party' feeling. I'm really missing my friends and my home already, though. I'm sure I'll have a really good time when I come back to Brazil and meet two of my best friends for a small trip to Ouro Preto which is going to close my self-given vacation period an amazing closing.

I've been able to do lots of gksu work here and I think I managed to fix some of the long standing design issues. I've uploaded my new code to unstable and expect to get some feedback on what's good and bad about the new features and design.

* Of course this is a joke; there is no cabal.
