Richard Jones' Log: Playing in Roundup - RoundupAsWiki

Tue, 27 Jul 2004

Roundup's finally getting its long-awaited configuration / tracker home reorganisation. Thanks to alexander smishlajev (who's also responsible for getting i18n going, finally) we've got a really nice new configuration management setup. I've been spurred into action, and have implemented the "" cleanup (dbinit is dead! woo!) and removal of the "" nastiness.

To test the latter, I've implemented a couple of examples for the Roundup Wiki. One of them is the download of all messages for an issue in the mbox format. The other is a Wiki in Roundup.

The upshot of all these changes to the tracker home is that we no longer (ab)use Python's import machinery to load trackers. That was a hack that lasted way too long.
