Been doing mostly Apache and APR work lately... not as much SVN as I'd like. Also a bunch of time with the DeltaV group and spec. It is finally getting wrapped up, but as with all things: when you give people a hard deadline, a bunch of suggestions come out of the woodwork.
[ of course, that is also to be expected. people will always want a stable spec before spending time with it. they are discouraged to spend time reviewing if they know their changes won't matter in the end. ]

Anyways... getting back to SVN now. Grabbed all the latest changes and updated mod_dav_svn to my latest changes over in Apache/mod_dav. It builds, so I'm starting to work on activities now. It doesn't seem like it will be difficult since it is essentially just recording a table which maps activity URIs to SVN_FS transaction ids.

Tonite, I also quickly hacked together an svnadmin proggie to create SVN_FS repositories. It spits out files, but there is still a ton missing from the FS. I hope that people can use the cmdline tool to create repositories to experiment with while they finish coding the FS. It seems rather log-jammed right now.

Spent some time up in Seattle last week. Visiting XMLFund, as usual. We covered a bunch of ground on the current technology in one of the portfolio companies, where things are going, what kinds of companies XMLFund will focus on, etc. While in Seattle, I stayed with my good friend Kanchan, and got to visit a number of other friends. It is quite nice to be able to go back periodically to visit.

End of last week, this weekend, I've also been moving the list.org and webdav.org websites to new hardware at John Viega's house. Our friend, Hellmonger, who is hosting the sites right now is leaving his job at the ISP, so we kinda need to move them :-). list.org will stay at John's (it's his site anyways), but webdav.org will move onto some dedicated hardware and then colocated for excellent connectivity and uptime. The hardware and colocation are being donated; I'll post to dav-announce when it happens.

Blah blah blah... I think that is all for now.
