Facebook-squishing Indian regulator's next move: Open source code

Fresh from squashing Facebook's effort to grab the enormous India market, the sub-continent's regulator has another goal in mind: open source software.

GNOME 3.19.90 beta tarballs due (and more)

Hello all, We would like to inform you about the following: * GNOME 3.19.90 beta tarballs due * API/ABI, UI and Feature Addition Freeze; String Change Announcement Period * New APIs must be fully documented * Writing of release notes begins Tarballs are due on 2016-02-15 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.19.90 beta release, which will be delivered on Wednesday. Modules which were proposed for inclusion should try to follow the unstable schedule so everyone can test them. Please make sure that your tarballs will be uploaded before Monday 23:59 UTC: tarballs uploaded later than that will probably be too late to get in 3.19.90. If you are not able to make a tarball before this deadline or if you think you'll be late, please send a mail to the release team and we'll find someone to roll the tarball for you! Read more
