Hmm. I am still a bit confused as to what I should have put on my page to make other people's lives easier and certify me:

  • Do I certify myself to give people a better idea of how what level I am at?
  • Do I certify other people who are already certified in order get their attention and certify me?
I have read the through the Adavogato trust metric page and I do not understand why people repeatedly certify Alan as a Master. Don't misunderstand me - I know that Alan does great work and should be at the Master level, but he is one of the seed accounts so my rating him as a Master is not going to make any difference right?

I have been reading Telsa's diary and she seems to suggest that you should display links to all the projects you have worked on. Are there any newbie guides to Advogato? I did a quick google search but I didn't turn up anything.

I've just realised I can help people quantify how much work I did on mozilla. If you do a Bugzilla search for Sitsofe Wheeler then you will have a better idea. Please note: that link shows the number of bugs I added a comment to - not the number that I reported, or were duplicates etc.

Well, this is my first diary entry. I have contributed a small amount the free software (if you use Mandrake then you may notice my name in the RPM changelogs of two packages, if you look hard enough) and I was also a Mozilla tester a while back. Anyhow let's see how this goes and whether any one will certify me...

While I'm here, I guess I should mention that I'm the current president of SUCS - The Swansea University Computer Society. Just for the record, no I don't know anything about Linux's TCP/IP stack. That was all done by Alan. Sorry.

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.
