AW: Digest #161 (2010-12-12)

Hi Mutlu,
I've finished checking over Issue 161, and it all looks good to me (and i've fixed the issue you mailed me about earlier!)

To help all the editors, i'm going to try and give some feedback whenever I see things that (I sometimes forget that some things aren't obvious, since i've been doing the Digest by myself for so long!)

* In the synopsis, I fixed the capitalisation of some words / projects (like git > Git, and so on) 
* I removed a few more of Nuno's icon commits (there were about 12 when 4 shows the progress there nicely)

For everyone
* Something I do is quickly scan read all the commits of a Digest (doing this using the preview link helps!), and format the commit messages to make them easier to read (without changing the text). This means putting new sentences onto new lines, fixing really obvious typos and just general cleanups.

Other than that, great work!

Mutlu, I've set you as editor for this Digest issue - feel free to change it to published if you are happy with it!
I have already sent off the Dot story, it should appear about a day after Issue 160 shows there.

Many thanks,

Dear team,

The digest #161 is ready to go. I had another email exchange with Jaroslaw and he approved the feature article with minor corrections. I injected it into the digest and added some markup language. I am not quite sure about my choice of markup for headings, though. I have distinguished them by adding <p> and <b>. which may or may not be ugly. Danny, could you have a look at it? In the future, a preview function for the digest would be awesome, also for verifying the correctness of the markup.

In other news, Ganesh has agreed to write the feature article on the change tracking branch in KOffice/Calligra. If someone wants to coordinate another feature article, I think it would be great, if it was something other then KOffice/Calligra, as it seems we will have two article on the suite back to back already. How about the plasma transport applet? Or recycling some of the blog posts on the move from HAL to UDEV?
