GNUpdate

I fixed several bugs in libcomprex today, as well as worked on the new iterator interface for files and directories. It's not complete, but I think I'll have it working tonight. I'm anxious to get libcomprex and libpackman linked up together.

Gaim

While talking to JSeymour (Gaim's Jabber developer), we ran across a little bug that, from what I can tell, has gone unreported. When putting a period right after an e-mail address, part of the e-mail address would be truncated. For example, foo@bar.com would become foo@bar.c., and testing@123456789.com would become testing@1234567. Basically, the length of the username minus 1 is how many characters would be stripped off the end. It didn't take too long to come up with a fix that mostly worked. I got it completely fixed (I hope!) awhile later.

Now that you seem to be back and active, I'm going to restate my request from a week or so ago.

Please remove my certification of Apprentice. I'm not asking to raise the certification, just remove it. I do not believe certifications should be given out based on your personal feelings on a person, but instead by their contribution to the open source community, and their skill level in the field. Thank you.

As for your question about pluggable interfaces to games, I do not believe there is any existing framework for doing so, as that would be extremely complex (read: just short of impossible). Games are all different, but if a group of game developers built games using a standard framework that supported some form of pluggable architecture, it would be doable.

I may have misunderstood your question, however. I wasn't completely clear if that was what you were asking.

Update: I would like to talk to you, but I do not wish to take up the time of the readers of Advogato. Please meet me in channel #GNUpdate on the OpenProjects IRC network. I want to get all of this straightened out once and for all.

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.
