So new updates latly, I've been trying to refactor some code for zengarden, and implement the fake chroot functionality. It's really trippy compared to real chroot, because if you try to modify a file in /, it'll copy it into the chroot. Hopefully it'll turn up good. I'm trying to make to code tinier too, but it's really hard to do that because pretty damn small right now. That's all, use CVS.

Lots of changes in zengarden, split it into 3 diffrent files to make it easier to work on it. Minor fixes here and there. Got build jail working, day and a half, not too bad. Lots and lots of good stuff in CVS. Next on the list is chroot installs.

On a similar note, I think I'm the autotools master now.

Today I started and finished the shell wrapper. Just wow, how good it is compared to the old one, and diving into shell programming wasn't as bad as I thought, althought there are a couple anoyances as usual. I really feel like this project is comming together real strong, and I'm really proud how everything is being done right and well and not half assed. Now to dive into the codebase and to get build jail working.

Woohoo, today I finally figured out all the quirks I needed to autoolize zengarden, and I officially pushed out 0.6.92. No shell wrapper script yet tho but that will come in the next release. I'm also going to clean up the whole autotools mess. As far as I know all the installwatch forks lie to themselves about being portable to non GNU/glibc/gcc systems, and they kind of make provisions to run on those. Zen garden on the other hand does not do half-assed portability (in fact non at all), thus I need make sure the checks for headers/functions fail gracefully with a nice message. However, if some send me patches that support other platforms, I'll gladly accept them.

I'm also aiming to have a working build watch implementation in 0.6.93, exciting stuff.

Unfortunately, the server is down. I dunno sofar "b0rked it". Hopefully i'll be back "REAL SOON NOW" TM. However, he did setup CVS and viewCVS before he b0rked it, so once it's backup, I'll have to clean up the page and i'll actually be useful.

I've fixed a couple smaller bugs in 0.6.91 this past day, and the fixes are in CVS, which non of you have access to till sofar setups up somethign for me... While I'm working on chroot, I've also decided to add some other functionality. I'm goning to add a feature that will prevent the makefiles (whatever) from modifing anything outside the BUILD dir. This is going to prevent some of those pesky makefiles, from "fux0ring" (yes that is the technical term) with the live file system, which I suspect that there will be quite a few. Anyone can help me with the autolizing mess?

Also for other distros using installwatch, source based distro, I would apreciate some colaberation of feedback.
