This is actually from 23 Oct 2001, I just forgot to post
I read through that Linux Certification article I mentioned yesterday. Pretty interesting to me, since I'm looking into getting some certs. The CompTIA Linux+ looks to be about on the same level as the last CompTIA exam I took. I'm A+ certified, and that exam was trivially easy. I might just go down and take the Linux+ exam next week, since I won't have to study for it (other than to edit a file with vi again, I haven't done that for a couple of months). I haven't finished reviewing the LPI and SAIR ones, but I think that the LPI one will certainly be on my list of things to get. I didn't realize that the RHCE was such a broad exam, or I'd have looked at it a lot sooner. That one is definately on my list, but I think I'll have to make sure I'm prepared first.
Tomas Ogren is helping me to get "push-sync" set up for ftp.gnome.org. This will mean that it gets updated immediately whenever somebody puts a new release on master.gnome.org, and we won't have so much trouble with things being out of date. The old setup is much too slow.
We got the "install-module" mess cleaned up there, but no further. install-module is the script that manages the ftp site, making symlinks, diffs, and that sort of thing. It's very slick, but we had a few dozen copies of it running around. Now, just 1 real copy is left, making things much simpler. Now we only have to keep track of a single copy, and can set up that single copy to "trigger" the sync. Hopefully we'll get this going to several machines soon, so that ftp.gnome.org is a RR DNS.
We've got to get new DocBook tools on the gnome.org webserver, but I haven't got time to do all of the research required for this. Darn. I sent out mail asking for volunteers to work on this, hopefully I'll get some replies.
I spent some time with drake this evening, trying to customize Norm's stylesheets a little bit. I think we figured out how things were getting called, but we don't have any clue how to customize it. Drake is going to email docbook-apps, and I'm going to read the replies. :-) I just found out that there's some XSL information in TDG, so I'm going to try to read that tonight.
