I (very occasionally) get asked what my dev setup is for Geary, so while `git bisect run` is running, here it is. In short:

* Emacs with vala-mode, dvc-mode and a minimal amount of customisation
* GNOME Terminal with custom per-project shell environments (".localrc")
* GDB for debugging
* Gitg for making git less terrible to use
* GNOME DevHelp/Web for docs
* The Open in Terminal extension for GNOME Files

Apologies for not using anything more fancy. :)

Deprecating IRC in favour of Matrix for Geary support and chat: mail.gnome.org/archives/geary-

I'd rather not have to do this, but we just get way too many people dropping in with support questions then leaving before anyone has has had a chance to answer.

Good to see Apple following GNOME's lead and using sane default application names: support.apple.com/en-us/HT2102

Geary has just adopted the Contributor Covenant Code of Conduct for the project's communication channels: mail.gnome.org/archives/geary-

If it hasn't already, maybe it's time your FOSS project did the same?

Another advantage of running Firefox on your phone (aside from working against the Google Chrome hegemony) is that you can enable sending updates to Mozilla Location Services, so GNOME apps that use your location tend towards being very accurate, even if you don't have GPS on your computer.

Geary has two projects approved for Outreachy, a paid-internship programme to support people from groups that are underrepresented in tech, to help make their first contributions to a FOSS project.

The first is is looking at improving Geary's user experience with junk email, the second is looking at creating automated mail server testing for Geary.
