      • Free Desktop2023 X.Org Board of Directors Elections timeline extended, request for nominations
        We are seeking nominations for candidates for election to the X.org
        Foundation Board of Directors. However, as we presently do not have
        enough nominations to start the election - the decision has been made to
        extend the timeline by 2 weeks. Note this is a fairly regular part of
        the elections process.
        
        

        The new deadline for nominations to the X.org Board of Directors is 23:59 UTC on April 2nd, 2023.

        The new deadline for membership application or renewals is April 9th, 2023. Membership is required to vote on the elections.

        The Board consists of directors elected from the membership. Each year, an election is held to bring the total number of directors to eight. The four members receiving the highest vote totals will serve as directors for two year terms.

        The directors who received two year terms starting in 2022 were Emma Anholt, Mark Filion, Alyssa Rosenzweig and Ricardo Garcia. They will continue to serve until their term ends in 2024. Current directors whose term expires in 2023 are Samuel Iglesias Gonsálvez, Manasi D Navare, Lyude Paul and Daniel Vetter.

        A director is expected to participate in the fortnightly IRC meeting to discuss current business and to attend the annual meeting of the X.Org Foundation, which will be held at a location determined in advance by the Board of Directors.

        A member may nominate themselves or any other member they feel is qualified. Nominations should be sent to the Election Committee at elections at x.org.

        Nominees shall be required to be current members of the X.Org Foundation, and submit a personal statement of up to 200 words that will be provided to prospective voters. The collected statements, along with the statement of contribution to the X.Org Foundation in the member's account page on http://members.x.org, will be made available to all voters to help them make their voting decisions.

        Nominations, membership applications or renewals and completed personal statements must be received no later than 23:59 UTC on April 2nd, 2023.

        The slate of candidates will be published April 10th 2023 and candidate Q&A will begin then. The deadline for Xorg membership applications and renewals is April 9th, 2023.

        Cheers, Ricardo Garcia, on behalf of the X.Org BoD

        In this blog post, we are going to see when and how to migrate a ROS application currently deployed with Docker to Snap.

        [...]

        • During the development and testing stage, the use of Docker containers is a good way to reproduce the application environment consistently, reducing the risk of unexpected behaviour. Just like Docker, you could do the same with other container technologies like LXD, reducing issues with missing dependencies or differences in system configurations.
        • When transitioning from development to deployment and maintenance, Docker’s limitations in the robotics field become apparent. Docker lacks dedicated high-level interfaces for accessing low-level hardware. It also lacks a robust update system and state transactionality. Docker containers are also not integrated in terms of network. All of these limitations require the user to implement workarounds that can be challenging, and expose our application to security issues.

         This is to announce grep-3.10, a stable release,
        fixing a bug with -P and \d. TL;DR, grep-3.9 would do this:
        $ LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 grep -P '\d' <<< ٠١٢٣٤٥٦٧٨٩
        ٠١٢٣٤٥٦٧٨٩
        It should print nothing, like it has always done.
        For more detail, see https://lists.gnu.org/r/bug-grep/2023-03/msg00005.html
        Thanks to Paul Eggert for catching the \D variant and to Bruno Haible
        for assiduously tending gnulib and for testing grep on so many
        different systems.
        There have been 12 commits by 2 people in the 17 days since 3.9.

        With -P, \d now matches only ASCII digits, regardless of PCRE
        options/modes. The changes in grep-3.9 to make \b and \w work
        properly had the undesirable side effect of making \d also match
        e.g., the Arabic digits: ٠١٢٣٤٥٦٧٨٩. With grep-3.9, -P '\d+'
        would match that ten-digit (20-byte) string. Now, to match such
        a digit, you would use \p{Nd}. Similarly, \D is now mapped to [^0-9].

      • KDABPimpl for Small Classes

        The familiar solution for thick value classes that want to preserve binary compatibility is to use the pimpl pattern (private implementation), also known as d-pointer (pointer to data). In future versions of our class, we can freely change the contents of the pimpl (i.e. adding, removing, and/or modifying data members) but the binary compatibility of the public class gets preserved.

        There's a minor variation of the pimpl pattern that can enable some performance improvements by not allocating the private data in all cases. The idea is pretty simple: move (some of) the data members in the public class, while still keeping a d-pointer data member.

        This optimization makes a lot of sense, if the class that we're pimpling does not hold a lot of state. In general, there are multiple reasons why one may want to conditionally allocate the private data: [...]

      • GNOMEChristian Hergert: libpeas-2

        Now that GNOME 44 is out the door, I took some time to do a bunch of the refactoring I’ve wanted in libpeas for quite some time. For those not in the know, libpeas is the plugin engine behind applications like Gedit and Builder.

        This does include an ABI break but libpeas-1.0 and libpeas-2 can be installed side-by-side.

        In particular, I wanted to remove a bunch of deprecated API that is well over a decade old. It wasn’t used for very long and causes libpeas to unnecessarily link against gobject-introspection-1.0.

        Additionally, there is no need for the libpeas-gtk library anymore. With GTK 4 came much more powerful list widgets. Combine that with radically different plugin UI designs, the “one stop plugin configuration widget” in libpeas-gtk just isn’t cutting it.

        Now that there is just the single library, using subdirectories in includes does not make sense. Just #include <libpeas.h> now.
