I'm a committer on the FreeBSD Project, where I work in the areas of the Handbook, manual pages and now kernel programming. I can be blamed for several manual pages in FreeBSD and many portions and modifications to the FreeBSD Handbook. I also seem to be doing paid work on the TrustedBSD Project lately.

Geez, I haven't posted a diary entry in ages.

I finally began my contract work for TrustedBSD back in December. About to post the new Web site. Expect another diary entry in 10 months.

Ho-hum... It's been a long summer.

Today I committed the big change: I moved mailing-lists.ent from out of the Handbook directories and into the per-language share/sgml directory, and created a PUBLIC identifier in each language-specific catalog file. Speaking of that, I think I need to move all the 'language-specific' sections of doc/share/sgml/catalog into each language's own catalog.

Also, if this goes well and without fallout, a move of the authors.ent and other such files into share/sgml directories and into PUBLIC identifiers (instead of SYSTEM) is not far behind.

A small detail: Seems like nobody really prepared to have much inside of doc/lang/share/sgml as the validate target, which is used to ensure that large documents such as the Handbook would build without actually building them, did not bother to check the language-specific catalogs whatsoever. So I fixed that, too.

So it's been about a year since I've made a diary entry. And nothing momentous has happened. I'm making a post to keep whoever might actually care updated, though: I'm working on the FAQ now. You know, that big messy thing that has a bunch of silly questions and silly answers. Well, my plan is more or less to separate it into a million tiny little files just like they did with the FreeBSD Handbook, but first I want to make it all look professional. So I've got my work cut out for me. Expect to see a roadmap document (written, of course, in the DocBook SGML DTD) in a few days.

Nothing particularly interesting other than the fact that I haven't made a journal entry here in about 3 weeks or so. Fixed a small bug in fdesc. Still don't like the sentence-break rules for mdoc manual pages. That's about it. Carry on.
