in amongst and after this weekend's crazyness in svn, there have been a few other really nice happenings.
one is trolltech donating a significant amount of code to the free software stack for text rendering.
another was okular finally moved back into kdegraphics. i've taken on maintainership of the kde4 kdegraphics module for release purposes, and i have my work cut out for me there as there are a rather large number of decisions and actions that need to be made and taken. the people working on things in kdegraphics have been awesome so far and really helpful; we all seem to be thinking in the same general directions which is really nice and most everyone is upbeat and positive. i can't say how much that helps me get through the day when others have a positive attitude.
i spent a good part of the day today reviewing nepomuk which is in kdereview in hopes of still getting it into the kde 4.0 release. i think this is important as otherwise it will be next to impossible to do the integration into the apps for 4.1.
the krita people continue to amaze me with things like auto-alignment of pictures into panoramas.
the usability people are really picking up steam with the HIG, and i saw what will be the first public usability web testing for oxygen (they've done focus group stuff up until now). thomas zander even found a way to largely automate the dialog layouts they want to do, though there are still one or two little fudgelettes here or there to do.
techbase continues to grow: not only were there two new tutorials today, including one on nepomuk's kmetadata, but i looked and over the last two months we've averaged 4000 pages served a day. not exactly "high volume" yet, but that's 4x what it was at the start of february and we've only started getting the word out about techbase.
we also have set up a page on techbase for widgets and other classes that aren't in kdelibs but might be useful to find their way into libs. this is an attempt to start tracking such candidates in a more active manner.
