Daniel Robbins Won't Fork Gentoo

Filed under
Gentoo

Today I am making an attempt to refocus on other commitments besides Gentoo and get back to a more normal and productive life. I enjoy having conversations with Gentoo developers on what can be done to improve the Foundation and project as a whole, but there is so much to say, and while it is productive, it is also very time consuming.

For those who are kind of tired of the existing structure - well, I totally feel your pain. I will not be forking the project, and you may be bummed about that, but at the same time I am going to find effective ways to help the larger Gentoo community.

Some people still want a fork, and I really don't think that the answer to this is for me to lead a fork, nor do I really have the time to do it.

GNOME Recipes and Outreachy

  • Recipes for you and me
    Since I’ve last written about recipes, we’ve started to figure out what we can achieve in time for GNOME 3.24, with an eye towards delivering a useful application. The result is this plan, which should be doable.
  • Outreachy (GNOME)-W5&W6
    My plan was altered in this two-week, because the strings of GNOME 3.24 have not frozen yet and the maintainers of Chinese localization group told me the Extra GNOME Applications are more necessary to be translated than documents, so I began to translate the Extra GNOME Applications (stable) during this period.
  • [Older] Outreachy (GNOME)-W3&W4
    During this period, I finished the UI translation of GNOME 3.22, I’m waiting to reviewed and committed now, and I met some troubles and resolved them these days.

Home Recording with Ubuntu Studio Part One: Gearing Up

Twenty years ago, the cost of building a studio for the creation of electronic music was pricey, to say the least. The cost of a computer that was suitable for multimedia production could cost the average musician between $1,000 and $2,000. Add in the cost of recording software, additional instruments and equipment, and one could easily spend between $5,000 and $10,000 just to get started. But nowadays, you do not have to break the bank to start making music at home. The price of personal computers has dropped substantially over the past two decades. At the time of this writing, it is possible to get a notebook PC that’s suitable for audio production for around $500. Other pieces of equipment have also dropped in price, making it possible to build a functional recording studio for around $1,000. (Read the rest)
