Liferea localized feedlists

I’ve been working in bug #51604, which is about adding some Ubuntu feeds to Liferea‘s default feed list.

So I’ve added Planet Ubuntu and The Fridge to all of them, English and non-English, and some local planets to the ones that have (or that I’ve found) one.

So far Liferea actually has localized feedlists for English, Brazilian Portuguese, Bulgarian, Catalan, German, Spanish, Basque, French, Dutch, Polish, Russian, Slovakian, Slovenian and Turkish. So if your language is missing in the list, make one and submit it upstream! Or attach it to the bug report and I’ll forward it. You can base it in any of these. Hint: make them as distro neutral as possible, since they are targeted upstream! Also note that with the current implementation, there needs to be a Translation for your language in order for the localized feedlist to be used, since it’s set up in one string translation.

I’ve added localized Ubuntu planets/feeds to the Brazilian Portuguese, Catalan, Dutch, German, Spanish, French and Polish ones.

It’s time to make Liferea rock in Ubuntu a lot more, helping Liferea upstream providing localized feedlists too!

Reading stack traces from bug reports

Hello all!

Emmet Hikory has volunteered for running a session about how to read stack
traces (thanks Emmet!).

(Quoting from wikipedia):
“A stack trace (also called stack backtrace or stack traceback) is a report of
the active stack frames instantiated by the execution of a program. They are
mostly used to aid debugging by showing where exactly an error occurs. The last
few stack frames often indicate the origin of the bug.”

So knowing them well means you will be able to triage a lot of more bug reports,
and possibly fixing them. Also, since these reports are usually crashes they are
very important, so don’t doubt this is an incredible opportunity for learning a
very important stuff.

It will be run this Saturday at 11:00 UTC on #ubuntu-classroom on Freenode. So
if you are interested on it, just join us there! It will be a really interesting
session and we will learn a very useful thing, with our master persia.

So don’t forget to come, and also let your friends know about this, so they can
join too!

See you there!
