GNOME contributions:


Detailed description:
I contributed the split-view mode for Nautilus, which was a rather
large change.

I've also contributed some smaller patches and addons to Nautilus and
other GNOME- or GNOME-related projects, e.g.

Nautilus keyboard accelerator handling

Tomboy - gitg integration:
which resulted in gitg patches: http://github.com/hb/gitg/tree/dnd-commit-list
Jesse van den Kieboom (gitg maintainer) reimplemented them in part. The
functionality is now upstream, and made it possible to write a Tomboy
Git addin:

gvfs: gvfs-trash rm-compatible option handling

Alex Larsson <alexl AT redhat.com> (Nautilus maintainer)


Other comments:
There are a few areas where I particupate in disussion and code
contributions which haven't made it upstream yet:

An ongoing project of mine is trying to get generic undo handling into a
low layer of the platform (glib/gtk+). I made an API proposal
and a reference implementation
So far, it didn't get past proposal phase, but gtk+ developers have
signalled interest to have something like this in the platform (e.g.
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=322194#c17 ), so I am still hoping to be able to proceed along 
these lines.

I am also experimenting with tools to overcome shortcommings of the
current GNOME desktop, e.g. with respect to trash display
(something like this could become a Nautilus view for the desktop, or
be included in the trash applet.)

I'm also interested in desktop interoperability in order to nicely
integrate non-GNOME applications into the GNOME platform, with some
modest results:

Claws Mail addin for Tomboy

GNOME-plugin for Claws Mail

An old attempt of mine to modularize PIM components:

Unfortunately, that project fell asleep, but I'd really like to revive
that idea.
