O_o  ....  I mean, it looks OK to me.... 







(quick, Kensai, fix it while he is not looking).

Hint: "pacman -Ss gajim" might explain the mistake.

I like the forum/irc humor. Didn't find the one by bangkok_manouel that funny, and I continued reading the thread. Now further down, I found another gem ;-)

I would like to suggest that in the future appliances of new TUs should only be mentioned if the vote is over.

Re: Arch Linux Newsletter for April, 2009 Discussion

Well, they announce the application in a public list, so anyone can see that. I don't know why we have to announce that they applied for a TU position after the vote is done.

Can someone give me a true reasoning?

Well, but anyways, it was still announced on a public mailing list. A lot of people knew about all the applications, ghost1227 was just wishing the best to all those publicly know applicants. I feel sorry about that, but if that were the case, then I recommend TU applications would be posted on a non-public list.
