This is why Open Source rules...

I got a message on the roundup-users mailing list:

I've been studying the source code for the
file and was wondering....

why is there under the set() and create() methods, both,
a fireAuditors and a fireReactors invocation, but there
is no such invocation in the retire() function?

Seems inconsistent based on the rest of the code.

And indeed it's inconsistent - it's a bug. One that I probably wouldn't have noticed because I don't trigger that behaviour in any of my applications (and sadly I didn't have a unit test for it, but will now :) Yet one of the users of Roundup happened to look through the code and noticed the error. That rocks...

PEP code checked in...

Thanks to amk the PEP 301 code for Python 2.3 is checked in! (the test server has been running here for a while now)

Yay, and I've got the bits working - except for having the cgi-bin write back to the database. Needs sysadmin clues there. I got some valuable user feedback (read: bug report) too, which helps immensely.

I need to work on the look for it too...
