As usual, I spent most of the day on Nautilus today. I'm working to make the metadata reading asynchronous, which is funny, since others have proposed moving the metadata code entirely out of Nautilus into GNOME VFS.

This morning, I did a lot of tweaking of our Bugzilla and of other Eazel web pages.

For me, one fun part of Advogato is the business of certifying yourself. I don't care if it has any effect at all. I certified myself as a Master because I am definitely responsible for Nautilus, which we expect to be a major free software program. But it's still in the future, so I feel a tiny bit of "impostor syndrome".

No one I know has noticed me here except Maciej, so I don't have any other certifications.

So far, the people that know me have certified me Master. The people who don't know me -- well I guess they're just judging from my web pages.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
