Hey, no diary entry yesterday ? What a shame :-)
So, lemme tell you. I've spent most of the day yesterday hacking around RPM code to fix some bugs. The main bug what in the tarbuild code, but one thing leades to another, and I ended up the day with a full bag of TODO's for RPM :-)
Well, the bug got fixed. The patch for RPM3 is in Jeff's hand. For RPM4.1 I'm going to do a little improvement work too, so I'm holding it back. The point is that RPM3 is almost legacy by know, so bugfix is all it's worth doing for it. But there are a lot of things that can be improved on the tarbuild code of RPM4.1. Once tarbuild is not that much used, the patch can wait while I work on the improvements. Thats pretty much what is in my schedule for the rest of this week.
Well, actualy, that is not true. I'm still messing around with OpenOffice. Gosh, I hate that :-) But sometimes we have to do dirt work too, that this was my turn. If you want my oppinion, don't use it. Use vi. Thats a good text editor.
Will keep this diary updated on the development of my RPM todo list.

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.
