Maybe it's time to start naming the files DONT_README.txt. People don't read a file called README.txt.

Impressive Inkscape extension to do embroidery designs.

We need to figure out how to make it easier for Inkscape extensions to thrive outside the main Inkscape repos.

Kind of magical that with gitlab's CI I can run librsvg's test suite on hardware that I don't have.

gnome-class creates GObject signals again! Without signal flags or arguments or signal emission, but the tests are back to all enabled and passing: github.com/federicomenaquinter

My friend @prokoudine has a new post up on Libre Graphics World on the state of mastering Inkscape and learning tools that is well worth your time to check out!

I think I'm starting to understand syn's (lack of) error reporting from parsers.

@federicomena I would also like to see in the Gnome infra, the High-Five bot. another rust bot that keeps of PR/MRs opened and greets newcomers with a nice message.

Homu is the bot that Servo/Rust use to avoid pushing to master by hand; it tests every pull request and can be commanded from PR comments. All the "@bors" comments on rust-lang's github are directed to it.

I want something like that for librsvg. I think it could be useful for GNOME at large.

Has anyone made Homu work with Gitlab?
