Arrived on Ottawa for the linux symposium without troubles, I'm a bit tired.

Hacking on adding a MySQL back end to rpm2html... this is growing a 1 million+ file list database, this is scary, but doesn't seem to impede indexing speed too much. I seriously need to improve the rpm2html/rpmfind combo, having an intelligent and flexible database for advanced queries is a step forward. This should also help on currently very annoying mainainance problems.

Linux Symposium is impressive, most of the Linux geeks are here, I had a lot of interesting talks, and assisted to Miguel keynote and the Docbook presentation. We badly need a generic (not too compex but helpful) XML authoring environement. If gtkhtml(2) evolves properly this may be a good fundation for such a tool.
