Fwd: Results of the freedesktop summit

Before I start calling this a conspiracy, let me ask here:

Has anyone from the (current) D-Bus community got any knowledge of what the 
(kernel) D-Bus guys are doing? Despite asking several times for it, they have 
not shared details with us, they have not posted their source code, they have 
not tried to interact with the current, existing and experienced developers.

As far as I know, their current code consists of (unpublished) ideas and the 
systemd-bus module to interface with the (unpublished) kernel side. Does 
anyone know anything new?

if so, please share with the rest. This is getting ridiculous.

Lennart, if you have slides or notes from Nuremberg, please share them with 
us. It's high time you guys came forward with your ideas.

(A really frustrated) Thiago

This past week, developers from the KDE, GNOME, Unity and Razor-qt
projects met at the SUSE offices in Nürnberg to improve on collaboration
between the projects by discussing specifications.

5) Sync up between kernel and desktop people about dbus

When I arrived, Lennart was showing details of his current implementation of 
DBus into the Linux Kernel.
This was mostly too low-level for me (and arriving in the middle of it didn't 
help), but what I learned was the big plan around this, the idea of contained 
applications for security, with the kernel as intermediary (with security 
policies) between the secure app and the rest of the world (see also next 
Thiago, if you're not yet following this topic, I have a strong feeling that 
you should :-)
