Became a Debian Developer back on 2003-04-13. Only took 815 days to get through the process. I've been maintaining GStreamer related packages. Often takes a whole lot of time to fix small little bugs. Packages take forever to build when all the dependencies are installed. Has been interesting volunteer work.


Project keeps moving forward. Good to see that. I finally got around to releasing gst-python the other day. It's been working for months. Getting motivation to do the initial release cleanups was hard. Decided to make it entertaining and autogenerate all the standard docs, README, AUTHORS, NEWS, etc from DocBook source. In theory this will make future releases trivial. We'll see about that. Writing GStreamer applications with Python seems to work out fairly nice. Various tricky things to be aware of but I think it's easier than using the C API. Need to work on a tutorial.
