I had a wonderful week at DebConf and am on my way back home now.
I led one discussion (Debian GNOME metapackages #286) and gave two other talks (Ubuntu & Debian GNOME working together #60 and What’s New in GNOME since the last Debian Stable release #186). You can download the videos at https://meetings-archive.debian.net/pub/debian-meetings/2022/DebConf22/ . They will be mirrored to YouTube later.
This was my first DebConf and I had many useful conversations with people I had only interacted with remotely before. But many of the great conversations were with others who were also attending their first DebConf.
I mentored someone’s first official Debian package where it’s now in the Debian NEW queue.
Completed the complicated phodav/spice-gtk/etc transition for Ubuntu 22.10 and wrote up some notes in case they help other distros.
Added some useful keywords to the .desktop for the new GNOME Text Editor for improved discoverability from the Activities Overview.
Helped a bit with coordination of the libnotify 0.8.1 release which fixed an accidental compatibility break especially with Python apps that used that library.
