It has occured to me, whilst trying to track down an omf/scrollkeeper problem, that we don't have docs about the GNOME document system. We have docs on omf files, and on writing style, but nothing on the system it self. I think I'd find this usefull, since I'm basically having to learn alot of this trying to track down the above mentioned problem. So I'll try to keep jotting down some notes and maybe make some sort of outline so that a document could be made.

I've also been amazed at how many "correct ways" there are. Since GNOME 2 has been released, I've seen many emails, and IRC discussions flaming developers, because they didn't implement something the "correct way". Many of these seem to conflict as well: one person says that one way is the "correct way", whilst another informs us of a completely different "correct way". I now have more of an understanding of what the UI teams must deal with. I think they are doing great work.

Speaking of great work, the GnomeICU team is really working hard. The GnomeICU port to Gnome 2.0 is looking really sharp! Things keep changing which makes documenting difficult at times. ;) I'm also looking forward to the next release of this app too. GnomeICU will totally "rock out".
