Not much to report on the development front -- the new version of gzochi is coming along nicely, if slowly. I'm spending more time doing personal-life kind of things, for better or for worse (for better). Noticed that upgrading to GUILE 1.8 to use its multithreading features in gzochi broke a fair amount of shit in libRUIN -- one interesting thing I noticed is that it seems like it's no longer possible to protect a SMOB containing the SCM_EOL constant using scm_gc_protect. You have to create a new list using something like scm_list_n(SCM_UNDEFINED) and then protect that. Interesting.
I really like the deprecated-features-warning messages at runtime. Very handy.
Bug Squashing 2006
I'm going to be in Gutersloh next week participating in a bug-squashing party for Debian Etch. I'm gonna be working on fixing bugs in debian-installer, I'm told. This is my first time working on a major piece of Free Software (well, GUILE counts, too, I guess), as well as my first time off-continent.
Wish me luck!
