hello - re the new grids / ellipses thing
i'm trying to package up a CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Locator::US to also do geocoding;
what about a CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Locator::Base that does all the 'fiddling with the db' stuff that the UK one does?
Also; i would vote for changing os_x and os_y to be UTM easting and northing (which they are, really) naively assuming that all the utm coords in a given city are within one zone. Then default templates for different countries (yawns, arghs, tumbleweeds) can display grid coordinates in different ways; and people could enter lat/long too, though visual feedback does help with not getting this wrong.
i would show you shiny map examples but i've managed to break SF openguides terribly by overwriting my hacked up index.html by mistake... doh

vienna.openguides.org is another non-english guide (in german, BTW). maks
translated some of the templates, but he just changed hardcoded english
words with german ones.

I emailed you a failing test that I reduced the Oxford site problem
to. Do you want me to re-send it?

Is this the first non-English guide? If so, is there a place where
we can post I18n bugs (hardcoded English)?
Looks like the site suffers from the same problem with
CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff 0.06 as the Oxford site. I need to track this down.
I just overheard this on IRC:
23:31 < osfameron> gah, I forget the @REDIRECT syntax...
23:32 < osfameron> Aha #REDIRECT (not to be confused with @INDEX_LINK)
23:33 <@Dom> yeah, that is confusing.
Maybe we should phase in #INDEX_LINK (or @REDIRECT) in parallel before
dropping one of the variant forms. What do people think?

Could you let me know which bugs you found?

The look is not the important thing about OpenGuides; the
functionality is important. Have you duplicated all our features in
PHP, or just some of them? Could I have a look at what you have so far?

It's not working quite right - for example I added a node on London to
the "Clubs and Societies" category and despite the prior existence of
"Category Clubs And Societies" it went ahead and auto-created
"Category Clubs and Societies". It needs to ucfirst the category name
before it checks for existence.
(Case-insensitivity works fine for all other aspects of categories and
locales as far as I know.)
For those that don't know: un, the machine that hosts OpenGuides CVS
and that Earle, Ivor and I (and possibly Dom) develop on, lives in my
We just had a powercut, and it looks like it killed un's power supply.
doop will be getting a new one ASAP (ie today, once it stops being the
middle of the night) but in the meantime I'm afraid you won't be able
to access the machine. I will keep you updated.
The 0.33 changes are going live this week. I originally said it would
be happening today (Thursday) but after we rolled it out on London,
Bob found a bug with the distance search results. I have fixed this
in 0.33_07 and so the date for it all going stable is now this Sunday.
THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE to tell me that something in the new code
doesn't gel with your install.
