Planet GNOME seems to propose me very old posts (dating from 2009) every other day, since about a week.
Does anyone know if this is being worked on?
(maybe +Alberto Ruiz does know? :-) )

Maybe, maybe... though it's strange, because it happens only with planel GNOME and only recently; never had problems for the past year or so.

I wish #Mozilla survives it...
The order they're listed isn't relevant. The posts are nuanced; I've just captured a small part. I encourage you to read them all and will keep adding throughout the day. And you can find more on P...

Welcome to the "Cinelerra" mailing list!

I think I requested the subscription to the ML several years ago, and got subscribed only today. Now I'll unsubscribe, hoping that they won't keep me subscribed for another few years...

Multi-party videoconferencing over XMPP! Looking forward to see this implemented in Linux (and Ubuntu phones, especially)! :-)

Dude, I got news for you: XMPP is dead! There is no point now to implement this except if you want a geeks-only video conferencing medium :)

Very nice introduction to autopilot!
Free software needs more high-level documentation like this!
What is Autopilot, and how does it work?

Have you ever seen a bicycle like this? Or an even more weird one?

+Alberto Mardegan my reaction as well :)

Calling Javascript and QML experts: the QML ListModel component defines a get() method with a single parameter -- the index of the row -- and returns an associative object with all the data for that row.

I want to add an override of the get() method, which takes two parameters: the index, and the role. However, I can't make it work:

  import QtQuick 2.0
  
  Text {
    width: 300
    height: 300
    text: listModel.get(1, "text")
    
    ListModel {
        id: listModel
          ListElement { text: "zero" }
          ListElement { text: "one" }
          ListElement { text: "two" }

          Component.onCompleted: {
              var oldGet = this[get]
              this[get] = function get(index, role) {
                  console.log("called for index " + index + " and role " + role)
                  if (arguments.length == 1) { return oldGet(index) }
                  return oldGet(index)[role]
              }
          }
      }
  }

Suggestions?  #javascript   #qml   #qt

mardy, yeah; this is what I meant by QML objects not being real JS objects. You can't use them in your prototype chain, you can't augment them. Best suggestion I have (following Filippo) is
MardyListModel {
  internalmodel: ListModel {}
  function get(a,b) { ... }
  property alias count: internalmodel.count
  property alias everything: internalmodel.everything
}

and name all of ListModel's properties as aliases. Which is totally annoying.

Couldn't find a better time for making Chrome my default browser :-)
So far, so good!

Yes, +Marat Fayzullin , that's what I usually do. I never check who was the person or company which produced a certain software, and my decision is based only on the software itself.
In this case it's different, though. First of all, my action is not directed at Mozilla authors, who are for the most part extraneous to what happened ( https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2014/04/05/faq-on-ceo-resignation/ ), but it's just a little sign to the zealots out there (which might even not be Mozilla users) who were outraged by Eich's appointment as the CEO.

I was just thinking that it would be a good time to try Chrome; then, whether I'll stick to Chrome or switch back to Mozilla is something that I will decide based solely on the technical merits.

By the way, I didn't verify the facts written in this article, but if that's true, then I wish Mozilla would block okcupid and match.com:

There's one good thing in all this fuss: certainly people will stop using Javascript, given who it was who invented it. :-)

Thats nothing new. You cant judge a tech/science for its inventor and noboby has any objections on him working on JS or for mozilla. The issue is him being a representative and boss of mozilla.
