LinuxTag Wrap-up

Mai 29th, 2012 von buergermeister

Last week I was in Berlin for LinuxTag, “Europes leading Open Source Event”. But I wasnt alone, there was other Fedorians too and I saw also some “Beefy Miracles”. ;)

As always the event begins with the travel to it. This year I had bad luck with it. First of all I couldnt go by car so I had to take the train. And that is with all the stuff really hard, not the sitting in the train but moving it from train to train or from the station to the venue. So as I arrived I really sweated especially I had to take a long detour for the construction area  opposite the fairground. After the preparation of the booth we all went to our accommodations. The day ended for me with some beer and a little barbecue.

Wednesday is allways a day with a lot of people wearing ties so more business as community. This year there was definitly more people at this day as last year. Next to the Fedora booth was Centos and a HotDog Place, so we had some vouchers for HotDogs because we couldnt handout real Beefy Miracles. A guy named Michael Larabel found them really tasty. The wednesday ends for me tradionally on the GUUG evening. On thursday and friday the halls begun to be more crowded. Every media I brought to Berlin was gone friday evening, we had only 1 DVD left saturday morning. I used the time in Berlin also to speak with some people about the upcoming Linux Color Management Hackfest in Brno.
Saturday in the morning, I had a shift as session chair and in the same track together with Kai-Uwe Behrmann our talk “Bring Color To The Game“. The honor on this day goes to cwickert, who presented Fedora in a Beefy Miracle costume on the Projects Fast Forward and also took part for Fedora in the Distro Battle, a longer track where different Linux distributions can show, how tasks in with there distribution can be done.
I had to go this year a hour before the LinuxTag ended, for fetch my train and the travel home was again an adventure with delayed trains.

Linux Color Management Hackfest

Mai 22nd, 2012 von buergermeister

One of the good things that happend on LGM, was that Richard Hughes and Kai-Uwe Behrmann found time to speak with each other and found a way how they can work together in the future. That brought a new spirit to OpenICC and made a lot of people happy. Since then there was a lot of work on metadata key and also on some discussions about color managed printing. But this is mostly theoretical work and both like to write also code. So time to move forward there also.

There was since a long time the idea to an Hackfest on color management stuff. On LGM we had all three together also the time to speak about this topic, and we all had the feeling that would move color management on the free desktop forward. So now we made some plans and the hackfest will be in November. As you can see Kai-Uwe and also Hughsie blogged already about it.

The hackfest will be from 16th-19th of November 2012 in Brno, RedHat offices. There is already a wiki page for the hackfest. Planned is to get some experts in color management together with authors of applications, also working color managemed printing, move some browsers forward on this topic and also work on color management in toolkits. Some people from QT showed already interest.

So if you are interested, contact me or Kai-Uwe or simple join the #openicc channel on freenode.

day +3 LGM/Linuxwochen

Mai 9th, 2012 von buergermeister

Saturday the 5th of May was the last day of Libre Graphics Meeting and also of the Linuxwochen Vienna. It was the day of Beastie and Puffy invasion, because the european BSDday.eu was also in the venue. In the morning I had again a Inkscape workshop on the Linuxwochen, which was better visited as the one on the day before. So I had no time for the talks at the Libre Graphics Meeting. After a short lunch break a second workshop followed. It was a workshop about the whole workflow for preparing magazines/books and of course working with free software. Planned was to prepare a book with all the paper of LGM in that workshop, but I only got 3 of them. So on the end it was more a BoF-session about all the work which have to be done preparing a magazin or book. Thats already a lot, book sizes, book layout, font decission and all that.

After the workshop my voice was gone at least until I had a drink. But I needed not really my voice anymore that day. I joined Pete Ippels talk Transitional Work Flow For Artists Making The Libre Graphics Leap and and It Builds Character a talk from Nathan Willies introducing new free software tools for font development. After that the LGM ended and there was a short discussion where the next one should be. So next LGM will be in Madrid and there are some voices doing it in Asia. And thats problematic, there are to much people who like to protect what they have, an LGM in Europe or Montreal. But we will see…

The day ended for most of us in the same restaurant we went on tuesday evening, so that meant “Schnitzel” for the most of us. This time the crowed was bigger as in tuesday so we needed another table extra. But we stayed not to long as some of us, already started there travelling home directly from there or at the next morning.

Nicu managed already to upload most of his pictures and Mizmo did also made a bigger upload. For Taticas pictures I think we have to wait for a few days, she is in “zombie mode” after her arrival at home yesterday evening.

day +2 LGM/Linuxwochen

Mai 9th, 2012 von buergermeister

Friday the 4th of May was the 3rd day of Libre Graphics Meeting and the 2nd of Linuxwochen Vienna. The day of the goat invasion or the day I had not really fun. Why, I missed all the talks I was really interested in. For example Johan Engelen with the development of Powerstroke in Inkscape. I missed them because I had at the same time an Inkscape workshop on Linuxwochen. The workshop wasnt so crowed as they normally are. Because it was friday in the morning, a lot of people have to work. But there was no other time slot left. So I couldnt enjoy all the interesting talks from the GIMP world.

At 3pm was a bigger slot with an panel: Doing Design In The World Of FLOSS which Mizmo, Allan Day and me was planned for, Peter Sikking joined us also. The problem sitting on the end means, very often the points are taken. After that I skipped one talk and watched later Nicus talk about Free Culture meets Free Software: Wiki Loves Monuments and after that a video presentation from Bassam Kurdali about the Tube movie project. I had an conversation with Bassam a week before LGM started about that, because there was the idea to do a free movie session on the Linuxwochen after party on friday. But before we went to that, there was another q/talk planned like the day before. This time about open hardware, Pete Ippel talked about the MilkyMist One, Richard Hughes about the ColorHug and normally Mickey Lauer was planned but he didnt make it, so Zoltan joined the round and talked about the Nanonote.

After the q/talk I played again the role of a tourist guide and we went to the MuseumsQuartier. That is one of the places I like most, there is a lot of art and its also a place for Geeks as there is the quartier 21 for digital art and life style. The Linuxwochen after party wasnt invaded from LGM people like Nicu wrote, it was actually planned this way. Normally the after party its just a bigger table with arround 20 people as the most speakers are on there way home after there talk. Thats a problem of a longer event, you will never get all together. I tried to show some free movies, but it was already to late for that. On the social event Elisa de Castro Guerra went to me and used one of the few chances to speak with me, it was actually funny, because she works also for Doudou Linux, where I did last year made a submission to the Logo Contest and we had time to talk a little bit about it. Later we went for a couple of hours to the Metalab, Viennas hackerspace, which isnt far from the MQ and then home.

day +1 LGM/LinuxWochen

Mai 8th, 2012 von buergermeister

May the 3rd was the second day of Libre Graphics Meeting and the first one of Linuxwochen Vienna. So in the foyer of the UAS Technikum opened the exhibition area and also DrupalDay.at and the first talks of Linuxwochen helped to fill the area with people. Of course there was a Fedora booth at the exhibition and it was the biggest one. I brought the table cloth and one of the rollups to Vienna, and also what was left from FOSDEM on stickers. Mizmo brought also some stickers and flyers and also some DesignSuite DVD. Zoltan brought cheatcubes, DVD and an OLPC. So the booth was well prepared. The Fedora booth was also photographed from the Der Standard and published on his online platform. As you can see not only the both was photographed, also Taticas keynote was topic. She had later an interview with Der Standard and got there own article. The topic on migration to Linux is really from interest for the people in Vienna, as the migration in that city failed and they have to spent now again every year a lot of mon€y for licenses. On the end the topic was from so much interest, that the organizers decided to give a second slot to Tatica speaking about the situation arround Open Source in Latinamerica. Together we managed the spontaneously additional talk.

On the Libre Graphics Meeting side Mizmo and Emichan had their talk: An awesome FLOSS design collaboration workflow presenting SparkleShare, Magic Mockup, GlitterGallery and DesignHub. I didnt see a lot of talks on LGM on this day, but this one I didnt miss. The day on the event ended with an traditional q/talk from q/uintessenz. The topic on that panel discussion was “Open Content, Free Culture” the guests was Pete Ippel, Ricardo Lafuente and Ana Carvalho who work together on Libre Graphics Magazin and the guy who does always Free & Open Movie Nights, I think he is called gnokii ;) So an second additional talk at this day. We didnt went out for dinner this evening and I prepared a dinner in our appartment, “Zwiebelkuchen” and 2 nice bottle of wine.

day 0 LGM/Linuxwochen

Mai 8th, 2012 von buergermeister

The 2nd of May was the first day of the 7th edition of Libre Graphics Meeting, I by myself call it the “Color Freaks Day” because most of the topics at this day scheduled talks was about color management. But the day started for Tatica and me with a little shopping trip. As I said in the last blogpost, our appartment was at a really cool place and we had not only cafes outside, we had directly opposite an supermarket and 20 meters away the next one. So we managed to get things like coffee, fruit juices, coffee cream and milk. And there was even a bakery so there was fresh Croissants at the breakfast. After a cup of coffee we all went to the venue, which was a 20 minutes walk.

As I mentioned before, the first day of Libre Graphics Meeting started with a lot of talks arround color management topics. The first talk was Richard Hughes: ColorHug – The Open Hardware Colorimeter, followed by Kai-Uwe Behrmann: Evolving Concepts for Colour Management, Color Management in SVG2 from Chris Lilley from W3C, and then again Kai-Uwe Behrmann with Colour Management a la Greek and Richard Hughes: colord – Linux Color Management Framework, One Year On. Last in this round was myself: Taxi DB – Call A Cab To Bring The Colors. What we learned at this day, is that there is not really a good documentation for users about starting with color management, so many beginners have problems. Hopefully Kai-Uwe Behrmanns and mine talk at LinuxTag will helpful for that. When I understood Chris Lilley right then naming of colors in SVG2 will be possible so then transferring spot color names will be possible. For me it was the chance to introduce Hughsie to TaxiDB. He showed interest in using it but not in the way we thaught, but we managed to find a way over the week, using it for his needs and also for what I thaught TaxiDB should be, so a win-win. On the end Richard and Kai-Uwe managed to talk with each other and there is a new begin on OpenICC. The day ended for us with an picnic, Mizmo, Emichan, Tatica and me cooked and we went to the Danube channel, which was also not far away from our appartment. The crowed became again bigger as Allan Day, Garret LeSage, Jakub Steiner, Jiri Eischmann and some others joined us. Was really a nice get together.

  • day -1 LGM/Linuxwochen

    Mai 8th, 2012 von buergermeister

    I should call this day the “cat herding day”, because it was the day of most of the arrivals. Was also a day where I had to learn some things, first of all check your phone that it is working and the second if you meet on a subway station, tell the people they should not get out and wait downstairs, otherwise its really hard to find the person you like to meet. But we managed the fetch all the people we expected. First arrivals was Nicu and Emily. Both arrived nearly at the same time but the problem they didnt know each other and in the case of Emily I didnt know the flight number she arrives with. But both managed to get to the appartment alone. The cool thing was, we had directly before our house a cafe with an “Schanigarten” so we could sitting outside drinking a “Melange” waiting for them. After they put there luggage into the appartment, we moved to the next meeting point. The next meeting point was also a cafe in the 7th district so nearly downtown, I had ordered a table there before for all of us and we had a nice brunch there.

    Zoltan and Geri arrived also to late at there appartment, so I was sitting on a hot chair not missing the next meeting. But that was one of the points for the brunch, I also had can the group left there fetching Mizmo and Hughsie and come later back. But they managed it in time and they went with me fetching the others. But it took us really a lot of time to find them, so no sightseeing on the rest of the day. So we went all back to our appartments and went later to an restaurant. We was really a big crowd there because Behdad, Miska, Pete Ippel and later Christian Jeitler from the Linuxwochen team joined us also. So the fedorians get mixed with other LGMers. So we had a lot of nice conversations there and Tatica realized first time how big a “Wiener Schnitzel” should be ;) But we stayed not to long because most was tired from the travel and next day LGM would start in the morning. The sad part on this evening was that Kai-Uwe didnt join us, because he liked to prepare his slides for the talks on the next day. Hughsie was not happy about that, but we managed that both had time together later in the week.

  • Blue Frogs calling

    Mai 8th, 2012 von buergermeister

    2 weeks ago the german event FrOSCon called for talks. FrOSCon is one of the bigger events in Germany, they have a main track with talks, an exhibition with a lot of booths, and track especially for kids called FrogLabs and another part they give away rooms for projects for ther own program also.

    Last year Fedora had such an room and we prepared an whole day talk program with topics arround Fedora. Christoph Wickert organized that. As the CfP was opened I had a short conversation with Cristoph if we should do that again and I wrote a mail to the ambassadors list. To have an Fedora related track makes only sense when we have enough interesting talks in it. So we need people who want to participate in this or some clear statements if we should do it again or not. But anyway the CfP ist still open until 23rd of May and you can submit your talks also there. FrOSCon hosts this year also a PHP sub-conference with an extra program, there is also still time left for submissions.

    day -2 LGM/Linuxwochen

    Mai 1st, 2012 von buergermeister

    So day -2 for LGM and Linuxwochen ended now, most of the day I spent in trains and subways. I started today at 8am at my home for going to Vienna, first way was to Dresden and from there with the train to Vienna. We arrived short after 8pm on Vienna Meidling and after that we went to ur appartment. Tobias arrived really late and so he had only time to bring hispbagage to the appartment and then we went to the airport fetching Tatica. She came really with the last flight from Madrid, so now we sitting all in the appartment drink a glass of wine, write mails and do some work. Tomorrow (in a few hours) Mizmo and Emichan will arrive and our appartment is complete. It was really hot today and we all are really tired from the travel.

  • Just give us a name

    April 24th, 2012 von buergermeister

    It might be a “waste of time and money” for Richard Hughes but is isnt for others. The argument nobody would run “Fedora Verne” is a really funny one to me. Nobody runs “openSUSE Teal” or “openSUSE Asparagus” in fact not many people inside openSUSE knows the codename for the version. But because 11.4 was named Asparagus its got a design in that color. So as you can see what for others is just a wasting of time ist for other people a help for doing there work. The design and the marketing team can better work with an name as with a simple number.

    So if you go to the poll and vote, please do it not with the actual situation with that ugly submissions for the name in mind, please consider more what does it mean for the work of others to have release names. Its just a wasting of time to write such nonsense blogposts and when release names are wasting of time for Richard, so consider not to vote. For others its that participation in an open process, or can I choose the name in openSUSE or ubuntu?

    Linuxwochen Vienna

    April 23rd, 2012 von buergermeister

    The Linuxwochen are an special kind of event, its not one event its an kind of road show turing trough Austria. The tour stops in Krems, Eisenstadt, Graz, Wien, Linz and all events are in the period of April and May. Next week the tour will take place in the capital of Austria – Vienna and Fedora will participate in this event. The Linuxwochen are not the only event which takes place at this time and in the Building of UAS Technikum Vienna. The community arround floss graphics and graphic tools will also come together, as I wrote before.

    Now the schedule (first day, second day, third day) of the talks for Linuxwochen is also published and we can talk a little bit about it. The Linuxwochen will opened with an talk some of us might know. Tatica will have the openining talkVenezuela – An Entire Country Migrates To Linux. There is a little story behind, why the organizers decided to make it as an keynote. The city of Vienna started 2005 to migrate to Linux, they also developed like Munich there own Linux distribution called Wienux. The migration failed and the development of Wienux stopped 2009. So its a little bit a show that it can be done.

    But this will not our only part in the schedule of talks. I by myself will deliver 2 workshops working with Inkscape. But there is more, Zoltan Hoppar will introduce Nanonote and Milkymist as open hardware and will also have an workshop about Password Hygiene – Things that you must know about your password. Gergely Rákosi will show the audience, that Gaming on Fedora – How to enjoy gaming on Fedora linux,natively and with Wine is possible. Jiří Eischmann will show students that they can have a carrier in the FLOSS world and together with Jaroslav Řezník he will show the audience How to Contribute to Fedora Project. Jaroslav will also deliver an workshop Qt 5 Hereafter. Jiří Vanek will show the Path To OpenJDK 8 and Michal Privoznik will show Virtualization on Desktops. Together with the talks from LibreGraphicsMeeting, I count a sum of 18 talks, would say we topped the good participation in CLT definitly.  Of course we will have also a booth for fedora in the small exhibition area, next to the Red Hat booth. Fedora blue will definitive a recognizable color on that event.

    Bring Color To The Game

    April 13th, 2012 von buergermeister

    I was informed yesterday, that my talk for LinuxTag is accepted. The talk will be delivered together with Kai-Uwe Behrmann from Oyranos project. So some might think because of the Game in the name compared to KDEs slogan “Join the Game” and that Oyranos is more a solution on the KDE desktop, the talk will be about color management on KDE desktop. But it isnt.

    We will talk about color management on the Linux desktop in generell. There are lot of people outside they still think it has something to do with CMYK and printing, what isnt true. So the talk will explain what it is, and was has to be done to use it on the desktop. What for solutions and that includes colord, are out there. Which applications are useful and a lot of things more.

  • Tupi – Ready for packaging

    April 12th, 2012 von buergermeister

    Arround 3 weeks ago I wrote a german post about Tupi, a really cool 2D animation program and made a little screencast how easy it is to doing animations with it. The screencast is in german, but you should see that I need only 4 steps to create the animation.

    It might be easy using it, but it is hard to become running it on a fedora system. There are only rpm available for older versions and not for 64-bit.  Compile it from the sources is also not really a funny thing. The main problem getting it into Fedora was the using of ffmpeg as a dependency. Jaroslav Reznik spent some time explaining it to Gustav Gonzalez Giron, how it should be done to become packaged for Fedora.

    So now, Gustav learned the lessons and divided the code of Tupi, removed all dependencies of ffmpeg from the GUI and tools and made ffmpeg and the video export as an plugin. So there are now 2 different parts Tupi and Tupi-ffmpeg. He would need some helping hands try to package that and look, it works everything well.

    Without Tupi-ffmpeg Tupi will only export PNG or JPG, what is not really helpful on animations. So Gustav also begun to work implementing video formats that are free, like ogv.

  • LibreGraphicsMeeting – Schedule

    April 10th, 2012 von buergermeister

    The program schedule for LibreGraphicsMeeting in Vienna is now published. If you are intereste, you can find the comlete schedule here. On 2nd May the first day of LibreGraphicsMeeting the main topics are Color Management and reverse engineering of some file formats. On that day, I will give my first talk “Taxi DB – Call A Cab To Bring The Colors” about the internet color profile database – Taxi. It’s mostly the same talk as I gave on FOSDEM in february. This day will be really interesting.
    On the second day Mizmo and Emichan will have there first talk – “An awesome FLOSS design collaboration workflow” I am very sure the talk who follows that talk – “The importance of new tools to enable collective design process” fits exactly to it.
    On friday, I am really interested in the talk of Johan Engelen about -”Powerstroke: variable stroke width in Inkscape” hopefully I can visit it, but I fear not because I submitted also 2 workshops to Linuxwochen and after my experience they will scheduled on friday and saturday. And on friday it has to be scheduled in the morning because on 3pm I have together with Mizmo and Allan Day another talk – “Doing Design In The World Of FLOSS”. Nicu Buculei will also have at that day an talk – “Free Culture meets Free Software: Wiki Loves Monuments”
    Saturday if mostly animation programs like SynfigStudio and Tupi topic. But talks like “Remake – build system for animation projects” are also interesting. But I will have no time visiting them, first as I said I will have an workshop on Linuxwochen and at 1pm I will have an workshop – “Open Source, Just Works – The LGM Book Workshop” where I try with visitors of LGM and Linuxwochen to produce a book with the papers of the talks from LibreGraphicsMeeting. The idea behind that workshop is simple, Linuxwochen always asked me for an workshop about Scribus. The problem with this is for me simple, you can sit down with the participants and doing something with Scribus and hopefully they see how it works. I have another opinion on that, I always doing my workshops in the way to give the participants a target, which is useful. So later the participants can be proud of what they have done and see that they can doing things with free tools, its the most what you can reach in a 3-4 hours workshop. If I reach the target the book will be published and available at amazon and all participants will named in it. The profit flows back to LibreGraphicsMeeting and will be used for covering the travel costs for the 2013 edition of LGM.
    Some might have the question where on LGM comes Tatica in, because there was a donation campaign for her travelling to LGM Vienna. First of all we reached mostly the goal of 2.500US$ and a few weeks ago we booked the flights to Vienna. We got a cheaper flight as we calculated and 3 weeks ago I booked an appartment which brings the costs for accomodation also down to arround 200€ instead of the calculated 300€. So Tatica will participate on LibreGraphicsMeeting and Linuxwochen, where she submitted 2 talks “One Of The World’s Largest FLOSS Events – FLiSoL” and “Venezuela – An Entire Country Migrates To Linux” especially in the 2nd one are the organizers interested, because Vienna had like Munich his own Linux distribution once but the migration failed. So she will have definitly an talk at Linuxwochen. We will know it, when the program of Linuxwochen comes out. So Fedora will have an good and very visible participation on LibreGraphicsMeeting. Fedora of course will also participate on Linuxwochen, which is on same time and building, about that later more.

    Beiträge CLT 2012 – Material

    März 19th, 2012 von buergermeister

    So die Ausgabe von 2012 der Chemnitzer Linux-Tage ist nunmehr Geschichte. Neben dem Stand von Fedora, wo man mich eher selten gesehen hat, hatte ich am Samstag Nachmittag einen Workshop zu Inkscape und am Sonntag noch einen Vortrag, wie man mit Inkscape und SVG Vortragsfolien erstellt. Meine Vortragsfolien zu diesem Thema kann man hier finden, da diese die Demo natürlich nicht enthalten und sicher doch alle wissen wollen, wie es geht, gibt es dazu auch Screencasts. Der Screencast zum Erstellen von seitenbasierten Präsentationen, ist hier zu finden, wer mehr über das Thema Zoomeffekte bzw. ansichtsbasierte Präsentationen mit JessyInk den findet man hier und wer wissen möchte, wie die alternative Erweiterung für Inkscape Sozi funktioniert, findet hier einen entsprechenden Screencast.

    Für den Workshop gibt es natürlich keine Vortragsfolien, in einem Workshop wird ja aus meiner Sicht nicht viel um den heißen Brei herum geredet sondern gearbeitet. Wer wissen will, wie das was wir gemeinsam im Workshop getan haben, findet eine Anleitung zum Lesen und auch die Links zu den entsprechenden Screencasts hier im Blog in diesem Artikel.

  • status update on Tatica travels to LGM

    Februar 27th, 2012 von buergermeister

    A month ago I asked for help with collecting some money for support Tatica that she can go to LibreGraphicsMeeting in Vienna. Time for make an little status report. We have 38 donations until yet and raised 1,257.00$. Also time to say thx to many people like Bert Desmet, Christoph Wickert, Ankur Sinha, Jaroslav Reznik, Emily Dirsh and many many more. Even from the openSUSEcommunity and Libre Graphics Meeting folks came some money.

    So whats the status now? As I said we raised 1257$ on Pledgie, but that means not we have so much, because Pledgie gets 3% and Paypal gets also 2,9% and 0.30$ for each donation. That means we raised 1171,44$ right now. Thats not enough for the flight tickets, I searched with Tatica for tickets and the cheapest we found was a flight from Iberia for 1072€ what means 1436,48 US$. But we already missed the point for booking this flight, now tickets are arround 1120€ what means arround 1500US$. At least we have to pay maybe some money to Paypal for exchange from $ to €. So we still need some money only for booking the flights. So plz help us to raise this money. The Pledgie campaign can be found here.

    movie session @ DevConf.cz

    Februar 8th, 2012 von buergermeister

    DevConf.CZ comes up and as Radek Vokál wrote, there will be a movie session on the end of the second day. I will doing that session, its not my first time I do that. I started with that kind of event as a social event on Chemnitzer Linux-Tage and did it there 2 years. But I did that also on LinuxTag in a session and on openSUSE Conference. So what is it? It’s a mix between a talk and a movie show, of course I show a lot of movies in there. But I explain also what is an Open Source Movie and that has nothing to do with what tools they are made, as Radek wrote. So its an session where you can just enjoy some funny movies, and the best thing if you like them I can give you the movies ;)

    Back from FOSDEM

    Februar 7th, 2012 von buergermeister

    It was definitly damn cold in Brussel, but warmer then at home. The FOSDEM begun with a damn hard ride to Brussel, we needed 12 hours to go there. But we had some time to meet some friends at the beer event. As Jörg said the booth wasnt really good prepared. On saturday I spent the whole day on the booth ( I dont know why because I didnt add me to the personal list in the wiki). But I had still some time to say personally THX to some people who donated to the “Tatica Travel Campaign” on pledgie, like the guys from Libre Graphics Magazin. On the evening I went together with Nicu to the Libre Graphics Dinner and we had some chats about graphic stuff and the upcoming LGM in Vienna. Btw, there is also a campaign for donations on pledgie, so if you use GIMP, Inkscape, Krita, Blender and all the other cool graphic software you can say THX with a small donation.

    On sunday I spent most of the time in the OpenICC dev room, listen to the talks about color managment, I also had a talk about Taxi DB there. The cool thing was some asked in the talk about the OpenICC organization exactly for an application like this, so I had a good idea :D After the track the FOSDEM ended and we left for riding home another 14 hours horror trip.
