I discovered today that the GTK blogging client Drivel is apparently seeing active development again. Nifty!



ACKing KompoZer brokenness in Ubuntu 8.10

Okay, for everyone out there who has been frustratingly reporting that KompoZer is broken in various ways in Ubuntu 8.10 "Intrepid Ibex", I just wanted to say, I know. That said, I do not know why or how to fix it. So, here's a little background and explanation of where things stand.


That warm fuzzy (patched) feeling

So I noticed this morning both on my laptop at home and in the logs on servers at work that there had been a BIND update that came down the pipe, and being a core system service, was a bit curious what the deal was, but didn't look into it right away. Now, later in the day I'm going through the tech / security news of the day, and found this article providing a bit of background, and was able to confirm that it was related via USN 622-1.

Interviewed on NPR

So like we did for 7.10, with the 8.04 release of Ubuntu the Minnesota (USA) LoCo gathered contact information for various local media outlets, and I sent them all a note about the release, Ubuntu itself, and our release party. As a result, I actually got a response, from Jon Gordon of National Public Radio (NPR).


Talking to representatives

So I went to my Senate District's convention on Saturday, and while I was there had a chance to talk to a couple of politicians about OpenDocument in governement and open source in government and schools. While the responses were fairly predictable given the environment, I thought I'd share some of my observations.
