    Gedit is the default text editor on Ubuntu and just about a bajillion other Linux distros — but it’s also unmaintained. Did you know that? I didn’t.

And, sure enough, head over to Gedit page on the GNOME Wiki and you can see for yourself that the project is “no longer maintained” and is “looking for new maintainers”.
  • Going to GUADEC 2017
    This year I am also giving a presentation about the application story in Endless OS. Our infrastructure, our changes to GNOME Software, our heavy use of Flatpak, etc. Hopefully you’ll find it interesting.

It is not ready for primetime yet as we are still working on the server side glvnd piece we need for XWayland.
