Really sad news.

Thomas was the maintainer that reviewed and accepted my first patch to GNOME. He was very supportive and patience and encouraged my commitment to the project, later on we organized the Gtk+ Theming API Hackfest in Dublin together which led to the current state of things in Gtk+ 3. He definitively had an impact on the technical and human side of the project and he will be missed.

Goodbye pal!

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our friend, Thomas Wood. Commonly known as ‘thos’ on irc, Thomas was a long time contributor to the GNOME Art project, where he …

I am saddened beyond words to hear of the death of Ian Murdock. Ian was the founder of Debian and the first secretary of the Open Source Initiative, among many other things. I got to know him when we both worked at Sun Microsystems and found him a brilliant man, capable of insight and charm.

Many of us were exceptionally concerned by his tweets on Monday reporting he had been brutalised by the police and saying his career was ruined. I am sure there is much to learn and tell, but the post by his current employer (Docker) rightly asks that we respect his family's grief  so I suggest avoiding speculation here.

Goodbye, brilliant friend.
Dear friends and members of the open source community, It is with great sadness that we inform you that Ian Murdock passed away on Monday night. This is a tragic loss for his family, for the Docker…

Good luck to the new Cantarell maintainer, who already improved our beloved font quite a bit!

Ok +Mark Shuttleworth - if I commit to doing the work to separate the Ubuntu trademarks into separate packages and make it easier for people to produce derivative works of Ubuntu without any risk of being confused for official products, will you commit to updating the IP policy to make it clear that removing those packages is sufficient to avoid any legal issues?

Awesome ain't it? Thanks +Richard Hughes keep rocking!
 
This is GNOME Software running as an xdg-app installing, removing and updating other xdg-apps. No PackageKit in sight :)

There are a few to-be-reviewed patches heading upstream and then you need git master versions of basically everything but it seems to work pretty well. Lots more work to do, but we're getting there now.

Yet another example of a supposed security software actually subverting security.
AVG AntiVirus "force-installed" Chrome plugin that left browsing data vulnerable.

Apparently it's $350M of "political crap"
