Embloggeration happened: https://www.bassi.io/articles/2021/08/01/documenting-gnome-for-developers/ — In which I explain what's up with http://developer.gnome.org
After fighting against library-web for a couple of months, I ended up switching to Sphinx for the new developer.gnome.org website—following the work done by the #gnome design team for the new HIG. Turns out it was a very good choice, because now we have a decent developer documentation website that we can easily improve, instead of an opaque Django monstrosity that we can't even test locally.
Idea for a video tutorial (or blogpost): Setting up a new app from a Builder template, and submitting it to Flathub.
Some of the things that would be cool to cover:
- all the various places the app name and version number go
- appdata descriptions and screenshots
- making releases: git tags, release notes, etc.
- Managing two separate flatpak manifests
- Github submission flow
- Flathub builds dashboard

Part 2 of my series on how power works within GNOME is out now: https://blogs.gnome.org/tbernard/2021/06/15/community-power-2
I've been working on a series of blog posts on how power works within GNOME.
It took me a while to get my head around this when I joined the project, I'm hoping this will be of use for the next generation of newcomers.
Part 1 is out now: https://blogs.gnome.org/tbernard/2021/06/11/power-community-1
I wrote a post about the sustainability of the GNOME Foundation and what I think we need to change.
Note: the report for the year 2020 has not been released as I wrote it, so I could be wrong
I have announced my candidacy to this year's GNOME Foundation Board of Directors Elections 🎉
and I have now ditched all the C specific functions parameters that were documented from gtk4-rs. The latest remaining step: figure out the gi-docgen and make the rust docs provides links to actual rust items
I posted a wall of text to give my views about the future of instant messaging in the GNOME community.
IRC has served us very well for many years, but I think it's time to let it go and move together towards a more modern platform.
That doesn't mean ditching IRC just like that would be a success. We need our community members to want to move together in the same direction.
A new platform is a target, but without transition plan we're doomed to fail again.
