Re: Giving up maintainership of Dictionary and 2048


I'm sorry to hear that Pranav can't take the maintainership of
gnome-dictionary. So I'm stepping in.

As Pranav, I have no previously experience patching Dictionary, but
I've been involved in some other GNOME projects and I think this is a
great opportunity to learn and give back to the community.

If you agree, I'd like to maintain gnome-dictionary from now on.

I am sorry for first jumping in, and then not following this up.

I got a job soon after sending this email, and hence never got enough time
to look into it as planned.

Hell Juan;

first of all, I'd like to thank you for the terrific job you did as
the Dictionary maintainer. You're a hero, and your work has been very
much appreciated.

Regarding Dictionary, we recently started updating its UI to adapt it
to the
upstream Gnome look and feel. I wish I had finished it for the 3.18
but unfortunately I have not :( Of course, please feel free to ask me
any recent changes on it.

I'm sure the current UI, while not perfect, is already a vast
improvement over the old, 2.x style UI that I wrote all those years
ago. :-)

I just want to say it has been a really great experience, I'm very
to all of you; without the help of the Gnome community I would have not
made the first release. So thank you.

Again, thanks to you for your hard work.

If somebody wants to pick up the Dictionary, I'd also be happy to
mentor new developers.


I would like to take this opportunity. I would love to maintain and
work on this module.

Though, I do not have any experience/patches in gnome-dictionary as of
now, but looking at the codebase,
I think it should not be too hard for me to adapt, and work on this.

Besides that, I am also excited to work under your mentorship.
