I recently gave a talk and demonstration, Browser Automation with Geb, Spock, and Groovy, at the Capital Area Software Engineers group in Harrisburg, PA. While explaining the whole stack of software, I showed how to:
Start a project in Gradle
Get the Geb and Webdriver dependencies in place
Get started in Spock testing framework
Start up a browser for testing
Interact with the page content
Wait for asynchronous content
Abstract away page components into Geb Page classes
The slides and all the code are available in my geb-preso repo. It includes copies of the code I had prepared, the code we wrote live as a group, and my little toy Planning Poker JS app I was testing.

I was seeing the new GIMP 2.10.0 doing bad things with multiple gradients on a transparentl layer, so I logged Bug 795866. They quickly fixed the bug within 48 hours, but now I’m sitting here reloading the GIMP news page to see if they’ve cut the newest release.
Update: GIMP 2.10.2 just hit Debian Unstable!

The sanding stick needed a little adjustment to be assembled successfully.

I finally modeled a sanding stick for small sandpaper belts I bought a year ago to kickstart the project.
