+Mario Sanchez Prada managed to get Endless's version of Chromium running under xdg-app.  The process was not trivial but hopefully we can make a better experience as xdg-app continues to mature.
 
Finally got Chromium browser running as an xdg-app, and not just building (which was nice too, but not that useful), as a result of my attendance to the GNOME Software hackfest. And it even seems to work!

Anyway, this is far from over, but for now I'm quite satisfied with the results. Special thanks to +Richard Hughes for inviting me over and to +Alexander Larsson for his help with my dumb questions during the hackfest!

It is great that there is art out there that generates passionate responses.  I don't agree with this image one bit, I support the artist to right to do it of course.

Also note, that is the man that is out of luck. :-)  Just sayin.
 
The more I look at this picture, the more genius it is. It's called "The Forgotten Man" by John McNaughton

This is merely my interpretation; some parts may be incorrect and there may have been mistakes on the artist's part, but here we go:

Obama is looking on, ignoring the man on the bench who is clearly having a tough time. He has a ring on his left hand, so he had a wife and most likely children, too. Presidents Reagan, Lincoln, Washington, and Jefferson scold Obama for not helping this man. They are almost in tears, as well as most of the presidents who are standing behind them. President Monroe is looking at the Constitution in disbelief as Obama is trampling on it after he had slaved over it and after the months and months of arguing that happened during the Constitutional convention to get it just right and fit for the American people. Presidents Clinton and Roosevelt (both of them) applaud Obama for his carelessness. Franklin is even smiling. President Bush (George W.) seems to be more on Obama's side, but also seems to be asking him if he should be helping the man. President Kennedy is with President Monroe and is asking him (Obama) why he's trampling on the Constitution, but isn't as serious about it. You can see Taft and Wilson behind TR and Andrew Jackson standing behind Lincoln.
Money is strewn everywhere as well as other documents and laws passed before or after the ratification of the Constitution.
The flag on the White House is at half staff, which could signify the death of America. I'll leave that for interpretation

On a side note, depending on who gets elected, the next president could be applauding with Clinton and the Roosevelts (Mrs Clinton or Trump) or joining Reagan, Lincoln, Washington, and Jefferson (Cruz or Kasich).

That definitely seems like the wrong interpretation, of not only the painting, but the current election campaign.

Endless is the newest company to join the GNOME Adboard!
 
If you haven't seen them before, take a look at Endless https://endlessm.com/ they have a really interesting product. In the US or Europe we're used to internet access everywhere, especially in schools but in much of the world that's not the case. In much of Latin America the schools have slow and unreliable internet connectivity so options like the Chromebook just aren't viable. So they've built a computer based on Linux, Gnome and other open source projects to provide a cheap computer for the (mainly) offline world.

#f
As you may have heard, Endless joined the GNOME Foundation Advisory Board last week. We appreciate all the kind words of welcome we have received and are looking forward to strengthening our ties with this community. This has been a coming for a bit, and I'm looking forward for us to contribute ...

So much happier not watching CNN or some other 24 hour cable news network where they continue to keep on iterating on the same crap.

+Carlos Soriano has done an amazing job working on Nautilus!  3.20 promises fixing some of the concerns in Nautilus that I hope I hope you will all appreciate!
 
A lot of you are very passionate about Files, otherwise known as Nautilus.  Enjoy this short interview with the maintainer of Nautilus - Carlos Soriano!

It is too bad that we couldn't get extensions going this cycle.  3.20 will be a good!
 
A few nice days spent hacking on GNOME Software. Shell extension support will probably be ready for 3.22 rather than 3.20. It's string freeze on Monday, at some point I have to stop hacking on new stuff, but xdg-app bundles (as double click on a file to install) went in to 3.19.x today and seem to work well. I'll try to sneak localization support (i.e. langpacks) into 3.20 as it really just needs distro support.

Thanks go out to Parag Namade for implementing the new-style lang packs support in Fedora, which I'm using for this feature.

Ohh, and I've spent a day fixing all the search prioritisation bugs, so search results are a lot more predictable and are in a coherent order. Who knew returning a sorted list from a fuzzy search term could be so hard.

Does +Ikey Doherty play this game? :-)  If so, will he survive??!

OK, GNOME 3.20 is going to be the first release where no extensions are going to break.  I'm going to help make it happen!

what you mean this? -> Nautilus: Batch renaming (mentor: CarlosSoriano)
Benefits: We will provide the user a way to do a batch renaming inside nautilus with a nice UI.
Requirements: knowledge of C, ideally together with the gtk+ library.
Note: It will need discussion with the designers and we will discuss ideas about it.

From: https://wiki.gnome.org/Outreach/SummerOfCode/2016/Ideas

We will welcome you to the GNOME community soon enough haha ;)

Introduction
I'd like to say I was born in a log cabin, but clearly that would be wrong.  Instead I will say that I'm this guy who came across the pond at 4 years old.  Landed on these united states of america and been here ever since.  I'd like to believe that I'm a perfect mix of eastern and western.  Indian culture merging with western culture and I mean a lot of different kinds of western cultures. :-)

I'm active in American politics.  I'm still looking for my towel.
