Re: [ #2907] GNOME Membership Application of Lukasz Zalewski


The GNOME foundation membership committee needs more information to
process the application of Lukasz Zalewski. Since he has listed
you as the primary contact, the committee would like you to list the
contributions that Lukasz Zalewski has made for the GNOME community in
recent times. Your input will be greatly appreciated to help us to make
a fair and informed decision in the granting or denying the applicant as
a foundation member.

Lucasz has been a great help in maintaining GDM over the past several
release cycles (since October 2006, release GDM 2.17.1).  He has been
a great help in enhancing and supporting GDM.  His two main areas of
work have been making gdmsetup work better.  His efforts to rewrite
gdmsetup to meet Calum Benson's UI suggestions were significant.  He
also implemented the "custom commands" feature which allows users to
specify additional commands which appear in the login menu.
Specific NEWS entires which bear his name include the following:


- Improve custom command logic so that you can specify a widget in the
   gdmgreeter theme with the following sort of tag:
   <show modes="console" type=custom_cmdX/>.  (Lukasz Zalewski)


- Now gdmgreeter will not display the Face Browser is the GDM
   configuration option Browser is false.  Now gdmsetup supports a
   "Themed with face browser" option to support selecting this.  (Brian
   Cameron and Lukasz Zalewski)


- Fix spacing in gdmsetup so it uses less vertical space.  (Lukasz


- More verbose error messages from GDM daemon and gdmsetup when
   custom.config file is missing.  Now GDM will not start gdmsetup if the
   custom.config file is missing, but instead display a pop-up dialog
   with an error message. (Lucasz Zalewski)


- Further improvements to gdmsetup to improve usability.
   (Lukasz Zalewski)


- Improvements to gdmsetup, which now supports many new
   features.  Fixes feature request #334186 and bugs
   #343206 and #347101.  (Lukasz Zalewski)


- Added warnings when no themes are selected in "Random Theme Mode".
   Disable the delete button on Random theme mode for the theme that
   is selected in "single theme mode". (Lukasz Zalewski)


- Now support customcommands in GDM configuration so that sysadmins
   can specify custom commands to appear in the GDM GUI (in addition
   to reboot/shutdown/etc.).  Refer to the comments in the GDM
   configuration file and documentation for details.  Also support
   gdmflexiserver commands.  (Lukasz Zalewski)

Based on my experience working with him, I think he would be a great
addition to the foundation.  I hope this helps.  If you have any
more questions or want more feedback, please let me know.


At your service,

The GNOME Foundation Membership Committee
