It seems like things are running in pairs today.
It kind of makes me wonder what's in store for me at tonight's seattle.rb meeting. Maybe we'll get twice as much hacking done.
OB Perl note: I'm going to end up rewriting some existing scripts at work. Looking over the code really makes me grateful for mjd's fine work on the program repair shop articles. Thanks!
Oh, yeah, there are a couple more Koha bits that I should probably mention.
So many threads to follow and so little time,
Okay, koha is getting close to a 2.0 release (maybe in February according to the 2.0 release manager), and we need to start looking to the future. One of the things we really want to focus on for the next release is a major rewrite/refactor.
To really make this work, we're going to need to get a lot better at testing. I think there are two keys to this. First, I'd like to recruit someone to work as the testing manager. (I need to come up with a better title than 'manager' -- I'm afraid it scares people off.) Second, I'd love to find a couple more developers with some solid testing background, who are willing to volunteer their time on a cool FOSS project.
If you match the above descriptions, and are interested in volunteering, please feel free to drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wow, the Koha project (a free software project developing an Integrated Library System -- see www.koha.org) has really been hitting its stride of late.
Last night was a good example. Several things popped up:
I'm looking forward to the next several days!
