I get Gnome from CVS. So where are those things happening? I don't see
much change in the CVS tree for, say, gnome-libs or gnome-core. Sure,
documentation is written, bugs are fixed. Minor prettifications
happen. I'm happy all this happens. But where are those big things?
Have I got the concept of CVS wrong? Isn't the HEAD branch supposed to
be the bleeding edge?

I test, I report bugs and I translate. I feel like that's enough
participation for me.

Actually, the fun thing about playing the piano is that you can walk
around in town with a Henle Urtext score, showing off, and feeling
like a *musician*.
