Felt pretty good about life and hacking last night; got to make my first CVS commit to the GNOME source base.
Woke up this morning with the horrified realization that I'd committed the cardinal sin of doing a commit without a ChangeLog entry ... :^(
Oh well. I went back and added my ChangeLog comments, only to discover that my clever configure.in hack had been removed already by lauris as deprecated. C'est la vie. Life on the bleeding edge and all that.
