Time creeps up on me now. It used to be that each passing month seemed to go on and on, but now it seems that the months are shorter. Perhaps, I am just less organized than I used to be, or perhaps I just have more to do that I used to have. Perhaps, I am just getting old.

Either way, time is creeping up on me with Xaraya. It is progressing well, and I think that the core is about 80% there. What is lacking is the functionality in the modules in my opinion and some of the necessities of infrastructure that are needed to launch. I am somewhat happy of the progress, although I probably will never be 100% happy with the end result. If we had the luxery of time and a budget, perhaps we could take a little more time to sit back and smooth some of the rough edges that we have right now, although I do keep banging away at them.

I have been thinking more and more about writing a paper on management of Open Source projects once I feel that I can move on and out of the light a bit. It would be interesting to go back over my notes from the beginning of PostNuke and just wax a bit about where I went wrong (which is probably lengthy), what I would change had I a chance to do it over again, and what I did right, so I can reinforce some best habits.

I think at times in reflection I spend too much time on the negative and not the positive. I don't think we would have made it this far without just a little bit of the positive to move us along.
