Apart from being plagued with an annoying cold for entireity of the conference I still had a whale of a time. Attending this conference really motivated me to increase my contributions to the GNOME project. I made my first contributions in 2001 by writing the documentation for Gnotravex. It’s an awesome game, but you will need to read the manual to figure out to play it :). Apart from some other GDP contributions and bugsquad duties my spare cycles have been donated towards Debian. Unfortunately i’ve become increasingly disillusioned with Debian and all its political arguments. GUADEC has shown me a project in which I truly want to participate and get involved in. As Luis said “GNOME is people”. I want to be one of those people.
Oh and Raphael, I prefer GUADEC.
