Gnumeric Metadata Dialog

Yesterday i have commited some files in Gnumeric main CVS tree related to a project that i have been working in collaboration to the community, but in fact it is stopped due some priorities of our team here at INdT. The metadata dialog, that i hope will be incorporated soon by libgoffice is composed of four pages of information, as it can be seen in the next screenshots (click to enlarge the image), with a brief description of each page:

File Page

The first page contains the basic information about the file: name, location (uri), the date it was created, the date it was last modified and accessed, name and group of the owner and finally the permissions for the user, group and others.

Description Page

Second page contains information about the document, such as title, subject, name of the author, manager and company, keywords and comments about it.

Properties Page

The properties page is where you can change some metadata information. The box will show all metadata properties and the user will be able to add, modify or delete each one of them.

Statistics Page

Last page contains statistcs about the document. In the very specifc case of spreadsheets, the information shown is the number of sheets, cells and pages.

Ginástica Laboral

Desde a última segunda-feira começamos o programa de ginástica laboral aqui no INdT Recife. É interessante ver o quanto exercícios físicos básicos de alongamento podem ser penosos para nós que passamos a maior parte do dia sentados à frente do computador (na maioria das vezes com uma postura inadequada) e geralmente não fazemos nenhum tipo de atividade física.

Eu tenho um histórico de exercícios físicos razoável, com alguns anos de prática de musculação e artes marciais como Taekwondo e ainda assim sinto uma certa dificuldade para realizar alguns exercícios, mas dá pra ver que o resto do pessoal sente bem mais do que eu, e no final de apenas 10 minutos de exercícios é possível ver algumas pessoas bastante ofegantes. Mas a tendência é todos melhorarmos a cada dia.

Gnome Developer

Hi all, this is my first post as a Gnome Developer. Last week i had requested a CVS account to the gnome.org repository and it was approved yesterday. Thanks to Jody Goldberg that sponsored me, now i have commit rights to the repository. I will try to help the better way and i hope not create a mess over there. :)

For this moment, i am colaborating with three projects, two of them are directly related to the Maemo platform that are the ports 2 applications (Gnumeric and Evince) to the environment that will be used by Nokia 770. The other is a dialog that is part of Gnumeric, and soon will be incorporated by libgoffice that shows all the document information. I will post some screenshots of the result here as i commit the code.
