This is awesome news, and I'm extremely glad to hear that:

1) money is going to fund an excellent project / cause (GTK+)
2) we have such a well-known and talented (AFAIK, since I'm not a GTK+
expert) person working on this!

Yay Emmanuele!!

As long as nobody minds, I think I'll mention what I'm sure everyone
already knows: funding free software hackers, is probably one of the
best ways to improve free software, so I'm happy that the foundation
is leading by example!

One question: is Emmanuele given any particular tasks or direction for
GTK+, eg: does the GNOME foundation have any specific priorities
they'd like to address, or is it more self-directed?

Thanks again, and keep it up! Can't wait till there is a second
developer on board.
