Older blog entries for rodarvus (starting at number 1)

It's been a long time since I've added any news at this page for the last time. Too many things happened in the mean time. It's not even fair to try to explain everything :)

In august I left my job at Conectiva, to work in the USA, I even found a job there. But for many reasons (mostly bureaucracy) I won't be able to work in the USA :(

As a side note, I have started a little project, in Python - I am designing/developing a RPM specfile editor, having in mind problems like compatibility with manually written specfiles. Feel free to take a look at it, here.

Also, I certified a few friends that joined Advogato since the last time I was here.


I finally sould out, and created my account on advogato. So, to paraphrase The Cranberries "Everybody else is doing it, so why can't we?"


CL is being frozen today. I am cleaning up the MI tree for this beta. (side note: RPM sucks)


I have an opinion that I shall only certificate people that I know personally. So you probably won't see me certificating Alan Cox. (Hey, I am not saying he is not a master! :)

Well, here goes the certifications for today:
I certificated claudio, ruda, gwm, kojima, riel, marcelo, acme and bruder. All of them are some of my fellow co-employees at Conectiva. Riel got a master for his work with Linux MM. Kojima, for his *amazing* work with WindowMaker, and acme, for creating Conectiva Linux. (But don't get cooky guys! :)

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.
