I wish all the luck to the people converting GNOME to Subversion! CVS is really too 90-ish...;) BTW, as maintainer of two virtual modules (libkbdraw/libgswitchit) I can advise that these modules could be safely dropped from g-a and g-c-c - if Subversion is not going to be used for support of GNOME 2.14 and earlier. Otherwise, I'm afraid, they'll have to made svn:external or smth... (Sorry, I am not subscribed to gnome-hackers maillist, so I can just hope some person of the transition team reads this).
Wine + LEGO's LabView
Yesterday spent some time trying to make LEGO Mindstorm's software work in Wine/Ubuntu. Well, Wine has definitely made a great progress in configurability, since last time I tried it. But unfortunately I could not make it yet - for some reason wine could not load fantom.dll (Invalid ELF header???). I'll keep on trying...
It seems, voipcheap.com has some issues. Noone could call me through NAT when I used voipcheap.com account. Once I switched to sipnet.ru account - everything just works. Or is it just a combination of ekiga/voipcheap.com (with x-lite/win32 even voipcheap.com account works ok)? Or just ekiga?...;)
In a word, SIP is still not mature enough for people behind firewalls. I would not wholeheartedly recommend it to the people who want something working out of the box, in every situation.
