Gtkvts testing suite

Gtkvts is a huge collection of tests for Gtk+ created by Sun and later forked by LSB. Fernando Herrera warned me about it some time ago when I was thinking about creating a test suite for Gtk+. Since then, I have spent some time reviewing it and it is really huge and complete, but has some things that I didn’t like too much: tests that are bad implemented or do not compile and the conversion tool they use to make the tests framework-independent among others. These issues drive me to think that developing tests from scratch could be a better approach this time. Anyway, we can still use gtkvts as a reference for lots of things, after all, there is a lot of work in it.

How can non technical profiles Get involved in Gnome?

In the past weeks, an Igalia folk who has a non tech profile and I were looking for a topic were she can get involved in the Gnome community.
We reviewed this page, which turned out to be a nice starting point. She specially liked the accesibility issue and also found interesting the usability topic and the translation project. I’m sure she can give an interesting and different point of view. If you are already working on any of these Gnome topics and need some help, just tell me! 😉
Regarding usability, my folk Sergio proposed an interesting idea: design a “Your first steps in Gnome”, which would analyze and propose ideas regarding how to guide and train a newbie in the desktop usage. I’m sure this would be very useful for people not used to work with computers or even for people who come from other desktop environments.

If you have any other ideas about how a non tech profile can help in Gnome, let me know, they will be very appreciated 🙂
