Live from UDS Sevilla: Jeglagged in Spain

So you have all probably noticed that I haven’t made any posts to my blog since I mentioned that I would. Well, boy are you in for a treat today! We’ve been discussing all of the lovely things that make up Ubuntu, and how we can make them better. I, obviously, have more of a focus on Kubuntu, and boy have we been working on Kubuntu.Madrid Airport
I arrived in Spain around 13:00 (UTC+2) on the 5th of May, and it’s kinda been insane since then. On the 5th me and three other folks walked all about Sevilla for about four hours.
CathedralI’ve seen some neat sites, such as this Cathedral (left) and the royal palace of the Spanish royal family. I’ve drank more beer in the last 48 hours than I normally drink in a month. Sevilla, Spain is full of some exceedingly neat people, and I highly recommend it as a tourist destination for those who dig neat history.
John and AnthonyI’ve also met some very neat people, such as John “Riddell” Riddell (left) and Anthony “Tonio_” Mercatante (right).  These are the folks that really helped and encouraged as I got involved in Kubuntu in the first place, what a trip to actually meet them.  Riddell is from Scotsman and Tonio_ is from France, so with me being from Chicago I wasn’t certain if our paths would ever be crossed.
So far we’ve got what looks to be a very busy road-map including improvements for adept as well as systemsettings.  We’ve also been talking quite a bit about KDE4.  Nothing has been 100% decided on what we’re doing for Gutsy just yet, but I think folks will be quite pleasantly surprised with what’s going to be there.
I’ll try to get some more up here about the summit, but it’s difficult since the connection that is supposed to be in my hotel room is dropping packets left and right, preventing a DHCP lease.
Okay, I’m going to get back to trying to build Adept 2.1 now.  Check you all later.
