I have gotten so bad at updating this. I'll have to work on it a bit more.
Well, GNUpdate Hackfest was on the 27th-28th (my time, it
officially started at 0:00 UTC on the 28th). I got a bit of work done. We
now have support for the Debian package database, though a lot of the
searching isn't there, because the database has no form of indexing from
what I can tell for groups, dependencies, etc. I'd have to go through every
file, and that takes awhile.
I also fixed up the dependency checking quite a bit. I'm now able to actually
install packages successfully! The next step is support for upgrades and
Oh yeah, and scripting works too! Woohoo! I told gpkg to install cyrus,
cyrus-md5, openldap, pine, and screen, and it figured out the order, ran
the scripts, installed the files, added the DB entries, and everything
Just Worked (TM). Very happy.
I've been working quite a bit on a rather large patch for Gaim.
I'm completely ripping out the entire conversation backend and rewriting it
from scratch. The advantages are that it's now developed with a core/UI
split in mind, it has a fully documented API, and users will now be able to
have multiple windows each with multiple tabs, and can drag-and-drop tabs
between the windows. I'm not even near a working stage, but a lot of work has
been done, so it'll get there.
Unfortunately, it's requiring that I clean up messes in other parts of gaim...
So.. let's see. Well, I'm out of school for the semester, of course. I have
no idea how well I did on the finals. Probably decent, but not great. I'm
actually missing school now, though, because there are friends I wish I could
see every day that I simply can't now... Ah well, next semester.
Christmas was pretty good. I got some nice decorations from my room, some DVDs
I wanted, some games, and a room fridge :) Very cool. It's empty, but I'll
remedy that soon.
I feel dead tired at the moment. For some reason, I was unable to sleep last
night until about 06:30 in the morning. I woke up at almost 14:00. Hopefully
I won't have this problem tonight :/
