GNOME 3.17.4

Hi all,

GNOME 3.17.4 is out. This is a development snapshot, so use it with caution.

Among the new things in this release, you can find improved Wayland hi-dpi
support in mutter, IP addresses for vms in gnome-boxes, MathML support in
orca, performance improvements in tracker, events from different boots in
gnome-logs, a new places view in the GTK+ file chooser, a new application
preview: gnome-todo, and many small improvements and bug fixes all over
the place.

To compile GNOME 3.17.4, you can use the jhbuild [1] modulesets [2]
(which use the exact tarball versions from the official release).

You can also test the latest code using the vm images [3] that are
produced by our continuous integration infrastructure, build.gnome.org.

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
--------------------------

This release is a snapshot of early development code. Although it is
buildable and usable, it is primarily intended for testing and hacking
purposes. GNOME uses odd minor version numbers to indicate development
status.

module lists and the proposed module lists, please see our 3.17
planning page:
http://www.gnome.org/start/unstable

For a quick overview of the GNOME schedule, please see:
http://live.gnome.org/Schedule

Before the next snapshot, 3.17.90, is released on August 17, the GNOME
community will get together at Guadec 2015 in Gothenburg, Sweden.
We hope to see you there!

GNOME 3.17.4 unstable tarballs due

Hello all,

Tarballs are due on 2015-07-20 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.17.4
unstable release, which will be delivered on Wednesday. Modules which
were proposed for inclusion should try to follow the unstable schedule
so everyone can test them.  Please make sure that your tarballs will
be uploaded before Monday 23:59 UTC: tarballs uploaded later than that
will probably be too late to get in 3.17.4. If you are not able to
make a tarball before this deadline or if you think you'll be late,
please send a mail to the release team and we'll find someone to roll
the tarball for you!


For more information about 3.17, the full schedule, the official
module lists and the proposed module lists, please see our colorful 3.17

GUADEC 2015 Keynote Speakers Announced

Following the opening of registration, we’re glad to announce Pamela Chestek, Christian Hergert and Matthias Kirschner as keynote speakers for GUADEC 2015.

Pamela is the lawyer who worked with us during the trademark negotiations with Groupon. She is the principal of Chestek Legal in Raleigh, North Carolina, and counsels creative communities on open source, brand, marketing and copyright matters. At GUADEC, Pamela will share her thoughts on how the combined strength of the FOSS community made a difference in the Groupon case.

Christian has been involved in the Free Software community since the late 90s. He has worked on a wide range of desktop and server technologies for GNU/Linux,and is currently working on Builder, a new IDE created specifically with GNOME development in mind. In his talk, Christian will tell us more about Builder and his vision for development experience in the GNOME project.

Matthias is the Vice President of the Free Software Foundation Europe (FSFE). He started using GNU/Linux in1999, when he realized that software is deeply involved in all aspects of our lives. Matthias is strongly believes that technology has to empower society instead of restrict it, and will discuss the boundaries for how computers are programmed and socially function.

We’re truly honored to have a such a special cast of keynote speakers joining us in Sweden. If you haven’t yet, make sure to register to attend GUADEC 2015. We’re looking forward to see you!

Donations within the EU are now handled through the Wau Holland Foundation

The GNOME Foundation and the Wau Holland Foundation (Wau Holland Stiftung; WHS) have recently reached an agreement that will significantly improve the way donations to GNOME within the European Union (EU) are received and managed.

Prior to signing this agreement, the GNOME Foundation was able to receive donations through many payment methods (including wires, checks, and Paypal transfers or subscriptions), whether for one-time donations or recurrent (monthly) subscriptions as part of the Friends of GNOME program. However, donors needed to be residents of the United States for their contributions to be eligible for tax-deductibility, and wire transfers were prohibitively expensive from Europe.

The GNOME Foundation worked closely with the WHS to streamline the process for donations made within the European Union. Thanks to this agreement, Europeans donating to the GNOME Foundation through the WHS in support of GNOME will be eligible for tax receipts, allowing them to deduct donated amounts in their annual tax reports to the extent permissible by the law in their local jurisdiction.

The WHS has become a valuable ally to the GNOME Project, providing financial support, knowledge and infrastructure for strengthening GNOME’s ties with their European donors.

“Having an entity for collecting tax-deductible donations within the European Union is something the GNOME Foundation’s Board of Directors has been working on for a long time. I’m glad the current Board was able to sign the agreement that turned this dream into reality,” says Andrea Veri, Secretary of the GNOME Foundation’s Board of Directors.

The GNOME Foundation thanks the WHS for its continued support and help.

Useful links:

  • Ready to make a donation from within the EU? Look at the “Other ways to donate” page.
  • The GNOME Foundation Board of Directors values transparency, and thus made public the agreement between the GNOME Foundation and the WHS. Look here for a copy of the agreement.

relation whatsoever with a conspiracy that doesn't even exist).

To compile GNOME 3.17.3, you can use the jhbuild[1] modulesets[2]
(which use the exact tarball versions from the official release).

 * Sriram Ramkrishna (joined late)

* New board members attending
 * Shaun !McCance
 * Allan Day
 * Cosimo Cecchi

== Missing ==
 * Ekaterina Gerasimova

== Board meeting ==

 * GUADEC 2015
  * Last minute efforts to secure additional GUADEC sponsors
   * Jeff reached out to System76
   * Karen suggests we should possibly reach out Mozilla
    * Shaun points out Mozilla has a form to be filled in when requesting sponsorships of any form: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/form.dev-engagement-event
  * ACTION: Jeff to continue reaching out to more (zareason, TDF, mozilla) unless some valiant soul joins the action
  * Venue and hostel money
   * The total amount is 15796, it will cover the venue, hostel and flights costs
   * A complete list of costs is available at https://mail.gnome.org/mailman/board-list/2015-June/msg00105.html
   * How do flights for keynoters (2) and hostel cost for attendees reconcile with the Travel Committee budget?
     * It looks like the organizers want to reimburse the keynoters. Why?
     * Same hostel cost should be in the Travel Committee's budget, and the organizers just need to pay these money up-front to reserve accommodations
     * Historically speaking, keynoters' travel has always been covered by the GUADEC budget rather than the travel committee. Though this year, these are the same because travel committee budget is a part of the GUADEC budget.
   * We need to double-check the latest numbers wrt sponsorships and that this amount can be covered by the sponsorships amounts; ie we need confirmation that the budget they sent us is up to date and final and encompasses all the sponsorships and final expenses
   * VOTE: If the proposed budget is covered by confirmed sponsorships, keynoter flights will be reimbursed by organizers, and travel committee is aware of this hostel and keynoter flights budget (and only in that case, as otherwise we would need a revised VOTE), the Board approves transfering the above amount (15796 USD) to the local GUADEC organization team
   * VOTE: +1 Marina, Karen, Sri, Tobi, Andrea, Jeff
   * VOTE PASSED
   * ACTION: Marina to follow-up with Andreas about this ASAP
  * Sponsoring a party night event

    * Fabiana reached out the Board asking whether it was possible for the GNOME Foundation to cover this cost (360 USD + 15 USD / person for the food for up to 150 people OR some amount for drink tickets)
    * Marina proposes to provide sponsorship for the rent of the room (360 USD) and have every single attendee of the party pay for the food and drinks
     * Can food and drinks be purchased on-site on an individual basis, or is it group-deal only? Can food or drinks be brought in?
     * Food and drinks definitely require a sponsor for the event to happen
    * VOTE: GNOME Foundation to cover the cost of the venue (360 USD)  and everything else is subject to getting additional sponsors
    * VOTE: +1 Marina, Jeff, Karen, Tobi, Sri, Andrea
    * VOTE PASSED

please send a mail to the release team and we'll find someone to roll
the tarball for you!

Students are busy improving GNOME this summer

GNOME is once again participating as a mentoring organization in Google of Summer Code (GSoC), which provides stipends for students to work on Free Software projects over the summer.

GSoC students will work on many improvements to GNOME, including: an image viewing widget for GTK+, additional event sources for GNOME Shell’s time and date menu and improvements to the Java ATK-Wrapper (with the aim to make the Orca Screen Reader fully function with Java apps).

GNOME is also participating in the summer round of Outreachy. Our intern for this period will be working with Jim Hall to conduct usability testing.

This summer’s students will be regularly posting to Planet GNOME, so stay tuned for updates.

GNOME is only be able to offer these internships thanks to Google and the sponsors of Outreachy. We wish the interns the best of luck with their projects!
