Menus and various stuff

Havoc: ok, I failed too to get XDG menus in a good shape in time for MandrakeLinux 10.0. I had a working patch Friday afternoon but it failed support for the optional Layout/DefaultLayout from XDG menu spec and after a quick discussion with Mark, getting it working in a clean way can't be done quickly. And I'm not very confident in the quality
of my patch. So, MandrakeLinux 10.0 will still use our patched version of Debian menu system and I plan to push my patch and get everything in shape as soon as GNOME 2.7 will start.
Yesterday, a friend of mine came to give me back books and DVD I lent him and he showed me Beyond Good And Evil on PS2 : very nice game, done by a french team of UbiSoft, in Montpellier..
Today, I went to see Gothika with a friend. Not bad but not exceptional..
I was very sad when I read about Mark Finlay death. I didn't knew him but I read his blog on PlanetGNOME and I could see his contribution to GNOME. The last 3 months have really been bad for GNOME hackers :(
