Sorry, I've been meaning to write a roundup of the hackfest for quite
some time now, but have been inundated with other tasks.
Thanks to all who came to the hackfest; I felt that we made some
progress, especially on Sunday, although it's still a steady progress
towards a bug-free OpenGuides rather than any major new features.
By my count the stats were:
- 22 tickets closed
- 23 commits
- 6 tickets opened
I'm aware that I meant to do a release of Wiki::Toolkit and OpenGuides
soon after the release; the things stopping me from doing that at the
- I'd really like to get to the bottom of
before a release of Wiki::Toolkit, but so far I've been daunted by the
twisty nature of the code around that point to tackle it
- Kake asked whether we could use URI::Find instead of
Data::Validate::URI; it's a possibility, although it certainly
wouldn't be as strict and isn't really designed for the same purpose.
All input on those issues especially welcome!
All that aside, thanks again to everyone for coming, especially Oliver
and Janet for being offical OUCS People In Charge. Thanks also to
OUCS for letting us use the meeting rooms; I think they worked well
for the purpose and I hope we can do the same again.
To those on the openguides-hackfest list; after I've sent this message,
I'll unsubscribe you all, ready for the next occasion; please do join
the openguides-dev list if you're interested in more OpenGuides
