"The term “currying” has nothing at all to do with the delicious foodstuff. Instead, it’s named after the mathematician Haskell Curry, who rediscovered a technique devised by another mathematician named Moses Schönfinkel. While Haskell Curry certainly contributed heaps to computer science, I think we’ve missed a fun opportunity to have a useful programming technique called schönfinkeling."
Current status: sanitizing librsvg's floating-point comparisons. In some cases we want to compare relative to Cairo's minimum representable fixed-point fraction; in others we want the big guns - https://github.com/mikedilger/float-cmp/issues/13

I think one of the reasons I stay so tightly knit inside the GNOME community is that virtually every other Linux'ish based community I've crossed into makes me want to leave computing behind altogether.
GNOME has created a bubble where I feel valued and that my time and effort makes a difference in peoples lives. It may not be a huge community, but it's consistently been the best choice for me.
STOP REVEALING OUR SECRETS, TUMBLR.
