It's up and running!

My mod_virgule based site is officially launched. We had a launch celebration yesterday which went pretty well. Please feel free to take a look at the site - www.kaitiaki.org.nz but please remember that accounts on the site are intended for Kaitiaki Maori rather than free software authors.

The source for my version of mod_virgule is
Please check out the rtf-converter too.

Some of the modifications I made to mod_virgule are:

  • using rtf-converter and ApacheRequest to upload rtf documents as articles
  • Some e-mail integration to export user data as mailing lists for Majordomo).
  • Require opt-in (check-box on user options) for higher certification levels - so that we can use trust metrics to manage membership of an incorporated society.
  • A simple web links database.

I realise that my version of mod_virgule ended up with lots more embedded html - so probably it is at the end of an evolutionary code branch. I am still impressed with raph's code, and the power of the apache api for add-in modules. I'm also keeping my eye on the xvl project for future development.

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.
