On Nokia, Qt, and what not...
Not sure how to feel about the Nokia-Qt deal. If they can use it, congrats to my fellow hackers at Qt.Philip
:I've been working in my capacity as the Pango maintainer with the Qt guys for almost two years now. We are moving all our secret-recipe shaping code to a single module hosted on freedestkop.org and called HarfBuzz
. (more on that module later)
We arrange annual conferences called Text Layout Summit to meet and discuss. The first one happened at GNOME Boston Summit 2006, second one at aKademy 2007, and the next instance is scheduled to happen at the Libre Graphics Meeting 2008.
Really, we work together all the time. You just need to want to. And meeting face to face gives you that needed initial push. That's the main reason that I'm working hard on getting GNOME Foundation and KDE e.V. co-hosting aKademy and GUADEC in 2009.
