I'm actually working in (re)structuring my team. We've implemented some internal mailing lists (MailMan is cool and it runs ok with Postfix as SMTPd) and started defining a work flow. Things are moving better now.

CVS implementations are ok too. I've started developing some scripts to validate and convert SGML files to PostScript and HTML. These converted files are going to be made available at FTP and web, so that authors can view their changes when they commit files. I have to check how to deal with pictures... I have to convert them all each time a new picture is added (I don't keep a checked out copy of every project because it would require a lot of disk space).

I've been thinking about using sockets with Perl to send a notice to another machine to checkout these sources and convert them. Our CVS server is going to be on a dedicated machine soon and we'll need to keep this functionality. I can also work with ncftpput or curl...

Days are going ok... I've reinstalled this Toshiba laptop (2100 CDT) and I finally can work on the same programs here at Conectiva and at home again.

With chaos' help, I'm doing lots of things in perl. How could I live without it before? :-) Actually I'm migrating some shell scripts and Makefiles to it but now I have a much more versatile tool.

I've restarted to work on Conectiva's DocBook packages. After all, I need them to have a sane environment here. :-)

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.
