So this is advogato, eh? Well this seems to be as good place as any to keep a development journal.

Today was a slow day, making a few minor updates to E2, but mostly working on becoming a new Debian maintainer. It seems like a worthwile goal, and I want to get into package maintaining right now. I have a working deb for Everything working, but I need to fix it up more (better documentation etc). Reading more manuals, more manuals. Blah.

At the advice of chromatic, I've looked over the Test::Simple modules and his perl testing article on perl.com, and it seems simple enough to do. Everything needs more automated tests, so I'll look into checking those in.

Meanwhile, ebug and estore are languishing because of a few technical hurdles and lack of general time to sit down and tackle them. My [groupeditor] code from E2 needs to be fixed up for general metagroup UI (I HATE UIs), but beyond that, it's been a slow week starting off.

New Advogato Features

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.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
