Well, it's official. I'm now "the Autoconf guy" (aka "the build bitch"). Had fun yesterday printing out the dvi's of the Autoconf toolchain. They serve double duty: first, they provide a reasonable source of knowledge about the tools; and second, the mass of the bound version makes an effective tool to bludgeon myself with if I ever get too sick of Autoconf.

I just glanced at my hours for this week, and it's turned out that I've spent the entire week doing nothing but Autoconf configuration for all of our products. (Where did I place those manuals? I feel the need for some bludgeoning.)

I have decided on a code name for the release of 0.3.0: "Resurrection". (Seems fitting for a project that hasn't had any public activity for about 18 months.) Haven't been able to get much else done, though. I'm looking at releasing 0.3.0 in about a week and a half (sans Murphy).
