  • CTA: We need Web Developers to Contribute to GNOME!
    2 projects | /r/gnome | 20 Jan 2022
    I'll say it because it kinda saddens me, but contributing to gnome is not a fun experience. Even though I would be normally super excited about such a request and would be happy to contibute to a FOSS project that I like (I did and after all), my experience with many of the long term contributors to gnome has simply been too disheartening. You guys should think about why so many people are put off from contributing to gnome.
  • GTK 4.2.0 is out! New GL renderer, input hints, and a whole new API reference

    Look, all I'm saying is GTK needs to do better in terms of documentation, it has been needing it for years. I've worked on nodejs bindings for years and I've more than once stopped worked on it altogether simply out of frustration due to the absence of proper documentation for the whole ecosystem. Please, don't take all this as an attack, I'd be happy to help. But I think you're limiting the project by applying restrictions that chase those who could help.
