Another day, another PR. Another PR, another bug-fix.


Just spent my whole weekend reading (and writing) some Cocoon documentation, via the Cocoon Wiki. If nothing else, I'm a bit less confused than I was when I started. Maybe a few other people will find my changes useful.

I feel less and less ambition to post to my advogato diary. Oh, well. The more time I spend working on software, open source or otherwise, the less time I spend writing about the process.


  • My Project Links job is ending, due to lack of funding. It was a lot of fun, and gave me a chance to get paid for making some contributions to open source software, including some code contributed to the xsltml project, some tinkering with DSpace, and the creation of some FreeBSD ports (including several PRs). I'm going to miss this job, I think.
  • I've been playing with Cocoon. It fucking rules. It makes me feel that perhaps all the time I have spent learning XSLT wasn't wasted.
  • My new job will involve using microsoft development tools, and probably writing primarily for the windows platform. I'm either selling my soul, or I'm "rounding out my resume skill-set." Can't decide which.
  • I'm moving to New Hampshire. Probably going to be offline for a week or two, during the moving process.

Simultaneous publishing, from a source XML document full of semantic markup, to several different presentation formats. Only used free software, namely xsltproc and Xalan for XSLT, and FOP for XML:FO. I can't wait to see where we are in a few weeks.

I am now employed full-time for Project Links. The scary thing is, I ended up with my former-boss's job. I am now the Technical Manager. After spending over two years on the project, I feel that we're finally getting to the point where we are really making progress.

When I started working here, the site was over 30,000 files, and was completely unmanageable. These days, we're down to about 12,000, and everything is fairly manageable. We're publishing some really fancy XHTML+MathML documents. They're a work of art.

We're also playing with DSpace. The plan is to run a DSpace server as an "RPI Publication Database". I will end up in charge of running that server, too. Fun-fun!

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.
