Project status

Looks like I'm going to get a little time to work on coldstore during the weekend. If nothing else, I'm going to have to review opiate's work, because his Python binding to the store is finally working for initial population of the store, but not for subsiquent loads of the store.

Work

Blah. Finishing up the last of some reports for site usage for out of our clients websites. I hate writing reports. It did get me to do some nice refactoring, though, to clean up our reporting class library. Changed the Report generation class to an interface, instead of being solely for PDF based reports. Modified some other stuff to make it not rely on absolute file paths, but rather the class path (with the absolute path as a fallback if the resource load fails).

It sounds like we're going to get some more time to pull a better class library out of the codebase after we do our last bits of wrap-up. Which is good. I hate having to re- invent the wheel. Maybe I can convince them to use tapestry for the next project, though it looks like we're going pretty purely over to XSLT and XML for our next projects.

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.
