An unexpected e-mail

Today, while at the ATK/AT-SPI hackfest, I received a mail in my INBOX from a well known guy from the GNOME community stating just the following:

Don't know if you read Hackers news, but this one is pretty nice:

So I followed the link and I found a nice thread titled “Love in GIT” where people were commenting about something which remind me of one of the last commits I did in frogr, which became my favourite one so far in the project, by the way.

But the big surprise for me came when I realized that the thread was actually about the commit I innocently made last week, when I realized that the so-much-important THANKS file was outdated since almost one year ago, right when I got married, so I decided to update it. Then I understood that there was actually a good reason for the thread to remind me of that change… Yes, I know, sometimes I’m “a little bit too slow” 🙂

So I’d just like to publicly say thanks to the misterious-but-well-known-hacker that sent me the e-mail for making me draw a big smile on my face, and to the people commenting in that thread for the so nice (and funny… “make babies”??) messages posted in there.

Thanks!

Update [2011/05/12]: Now it seems the whole thing hit LWN… hilarious!
