The GNOME summit was this weekend. What to say...a lot got discussed, and there's definitely something brewing. I never realized I'd have to be a user advocate in this group; it's amazing what you learn once the irc names become faces.
On one hand there's this mantra of "non-programmers," the supporters, usability experts (ok...that was a shameless plug), testers, and users being important to the project. Perhaps we're even imperative. But there's also this feeling of exclusion. I hate that. I wish I didn't have to be the one to remind some hackers that there's a larger community of non-hacker GNOME users out there, and that they need support too...internal corporate support ain't gonna do it.
But that's just ranting.
Time for sleep. 3am and all.
