GNOME Development

I decided that I need to be doing more programming, so I’ve begun going through the GNOME Bugzilla, and submitting patches for some Bugs I’m running across. So far, I’ve submitted two patches to Rhythmbox (the GNOME iTunes-like player), and am thinking about a few more.

I’ve also used the opportunity to learn git, by linking the Rhythmbox SVN into a local git repository. Git seems pretty cool, but I haven’t really had an opportunity to look at how it handles collisions, which frankly is going to be the most interesting part of git, in my opinion. Still, it’s branching is quite interesting, and I like that I can maintain version control in my local repo without messing with the GNOME SVN.
