Today I finally finished my patch to teach Eclipse about the common free software cvs repositories. I sent it in. I expect to have to rewrite it again. Right now it only knows about 7 repositories; I'm sure there are a bunch of important ones I'm missing. We've come a long way! Back in the day, says grandpa, there were no public repositories at all. It's hard to believe how primitive things were in 1990.

Not sure what I'll work on next. Probably humdrum bugs again.

Today wondered idly whether the Eclipse platform could be used as the base for a movie editor. I'm guessing there would probably be some significant problems doing it.
