Calling hackers who care about Android+Banshee

If you care about the neat feature about synchronizing metadata to your device using Banshee, and you have an Android device, you may be interested to hear that I created a patch for it, and it was recently reviewed requesting some changes here.

Unfortunately my Android phone broke completely (don't ask me the details...) so I cannot work on the patch anymore. Anyone wants to continue the work?

If yes, go ahead and ask me anything you want, I'm usually in irc://irc.gnome.org/banshee with the "knocte" nickname, or you could also ask the question on the channel if I'm not there, there are usually awesome contributors there that will try to help. If you haven't ever coded for banshee, check the Contributing page first.

BTW, kudos to all the people involved in the Banshee v.2.0 release!

WTF reduction

My first patch to FluentNHibernate was just merged upstream!

What it basically does is a bit of what I call WTF reduction: you will no longer get a confusing message like "For property 'Foo' expected 'Bar' of type 'Bar' but got 'Bar' of type 'Bar'" when unit testing your entities' properties.

AFAIK the next release will include this, and will be the first one to link to the new version of NHibernate, 3.0, which I've found that works very well.
