Release Team Changes

I'm totally late at announcing this, but well, it's never too late, is it? Our GNOME project hero, window management guru and former release manager Elijah left the release team after the GNOME 2.22.0 release. Everybody knows he's been a key member in the release team in the past few years, so we'll just pretend he was useless and we wanted to get rid of him (that's obviously not true and we miss him a lot, but it's easier to pretend we don't miss him ;-))

And since the release team people are all lazy people, we couldn't stay with a missing member. So the fantastic Lucas has joined us. The cool thing is that we can now delegate all the tasks to him and pretend that it's normal work he should do. I've heard from good sources that Lucas loves to do all the boring tasks anyway :-) Lucas, I'll buy you drinks in Istanbul!


Dear Christian,

Please don't spread false rumors. Ice cream Deathmatches are the ultimate experience and wouldn't exist without confidence of all involved parties, which means that only truth can be told. And I shall reveal the truth. Andre and I first tried to organize a deathmatch on one of the early evenings, but we couldn't find any zmrzlina. Then, on a later evening, which you witnessed, Andre gave up because he had drunk too many beers -- he's not that solid after all. But it doesn't matter since GUADEC will most probably see the biggest Ice cream Deathmatch of all times.




And hopefully, I'll be able to post something later today about my highlights of this week in Prague.
