GUPnP Tools

Thanks to Lapo Calamandrei, now i have quite perfect images for the network light and it looks much better than that of Intel, IMO:

While Lapo was busy making the icons, I implemented the UI for the network light and also made the universal control point use icon from the device, if available to represent it in the device treeview. If things keep going on this pace, expect a 0.2 release of gupnp-tools anytime soon.

Whining

I am no expert on GPG and SSH keys and MTAs but should that mean that I should be denied write-access to projects hosted on freedesktop.org? For me that is precisely what it meant. Another sin of mine is that I have already used popular web-based email clients, first yahoo and then gmail. So the punishment i get for all these sins is the inability to get my SSH keys uploaded to freedesktop. I first tried the web interface of both gmail and yahoo to send the GPG-signed payload but both did some formating and that screwed the message. Then i tried to use thunderbird and exim4 using gmail's SMTP server, then my office exchange server (both with thunderbird and MS Outlook) but none of them worked. If it was the matter of my project, I would have decided to host it somewhere where they have something as basic as a webpage to upload the SSH key, working but unfortunately the projects i need to work on (e.g gstreamer) have been hosted on f.d.o for years now and why would anyone even consider moving to some other service for a small contributer like me.
