It's getting there...

Fosdem is over. I heard some talkes, investigated some booths, but the fun thing was meeting Michael, Ken, Antonio, and some other guys there.
I guess there are better organized events and meetings out there, but it was worth going there (at least if it's only a 2,5h ride). Unfortunatly I didn't run into any Xfce developer, but a few of them have been there. Hope next time they will have a booths or a devroom (even if they would have to share with Gnome).
I did some improvments to Xfce Edition, added a lot of "unimportant" packages I just forgot (network-manager-applet, gimp, inkscape, evince, brasero).
So biggest issue now is to make gdm start Xfce as default, for new users.
Whaawmp is now working with python 2.4, I added a svn snapshot to Xfce Edition.
Unfortunatly due to gst dvdnav bugginess, it doesn't support dvd menus. C'est la vi.
So long...

Searching for a Totem replacement, I ran into whaawmp.
It's meant to be a Totem replacement, written in python, using pygtk and gstreamer.
Unfortunatly it's written using Python 2.5 (we don't have it in foresight, yet), so I just joined the development team, working on a Python 2.4 branch. Hopefully there will be a partial working version later today.

Isn't it green?

I did some work on Xfce Edition again and it looks green.
Pulseaudio and Packagekit are working now.

Still a lot of work to get a stable, full featured release.
But it's slowly getting there.
