Rygel/Shotwell/GUADEC

  • Rygel is currently mainly receiving maintenance things because reason. This is hopefully changing soonish
  • I picked up Shotwell as maintainer and things are coming along nicely, though its architecture sometimes makes changes that sound really easy very hard (e.g. certain import performance improvements). Most annoying part, though, is that the merging of the awesome map feature is somewhat affected by the recent woes regarding MapQuest’s tile server
  • I’m going to be at GUADEC during its core days

That’s all for now.

  1. I’m sorry to contact you in this way, but I can find no other way to report bugs to you (can’t file bugs on Launchapad for PPA versions).

    Shotwell has a crashing bug every time you try to export images to Flickr (or, I assume other online places):

    Ubuntu 16.04, shotwell/xenial,now 0.23.4-1~jensge1~xenial3 amd64

    Gtk-Message: GtkDialog mapped without a transient parent. This is discouraged.
    shotwell: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/shotwell/plugins/builtin/shotwell-publishing.so: undefined symbol: hmac_sha1

    Feel free to contact me if you need further info or testing.

  2. Big thank you! And an even bigger thank you for taking on the maintenance

    You might want to add a link on the ppa page for reporting bugs. Right now it just says to contact you directly.
