Notes? I've worked as a commercial software packager (RPM)

I've freely packaged stuff (RPM and OS X Package)

So far I've contributed to one major project- I contributed to the init module of Webmin, I wrote the part (released in 0.89) that allows webmin to modify the /etc/hostconfig file on Darwin/OS X including editing of startup actions and creation of new startup actions.

I will be working on more webmin stuff for OS X, hopefully making webmin as well supported on Darwin/OS X as it is on Red Hat.

I also would like to work on porting ming to Darwin. I think the way I would do it is to port the project from current state of editing Makefile, to useing Autoconf and libtool. But we'll see. I sent the developer a few e-mails, he never replied- but I guess why should he.

At the moment I'm working on a packaging tool for OS X (all shell script) that will be somewhat similar to a rpm spec file, but not quite. It will be open source, as shell scripts generally are ;)

I would like to work on man2html to make it generate w3c html 4.0 strict web pages, utilizing a css style sheet. I like web pages that validate w3c.

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.
