[$] Kernel.org news: two-factor authentication and more

Linux Weekly News - h, 2014-08-25 18:33
Kernel developers depend heavily on kernel.org for the hosting of Git repositories and the management of patch flow in general, so it is not surprising that the annual Kernel Summit sets aside a slot to discuss what is happening with this site. In recent years, there has been a lot of change to discuss, mostly relating to the reorganization of kernel.org management resulting from the compromise of the site in 2011. The 2014 kernel.org discussion, run by Konstantin Ryabitsev, shows that, in a lot of ways, the pace of change is slowing, but the kernel.org maintainers are still working to improve their support and make it more secure.

Day: New Human Interface Guidelines for GNOME and GTK+

Linux Weekly News - p, 2014-08-22 23:25

At his blog, Allan Day announces the preliminary availability of a brand-new edition of the GNOME Human Interface Guidelines (HIG). Prepared for the upcoming GNOME 3.14 release, this is the first major overhaul of the GNOME HIG in some time. Day notes: "There is a downside to all the experimentation that has been happening in software design in recent years, of course – it can often be a bewildering space to navigate. This is where the HIG comes in. Its goal is to help developers and designers take advantage of the new abilities at their disposal, without losing their way in the process. This is reflected in the structure of the new HIG: the guidelines don’t enforce a single template on which applications have to be based, but presents a series of patterns and elements which can be drawn upon." He also emphasizes that the new HIG, despite its name, is not a GNOME-only document, but is designed to aid interface design in other GTK+ applications, too.
