Heard on irc:

person: ‘yum is saving my sanity though, I must say’

me: funny, b/c it seems to be losing me mine.


Cleaned up and renamed variables in yum config stuff. Fixed up the cli arg parsing for things people have wanted for a while. Really, feeling better about the config and arg parsing code. So much more pain ahead, though.

Made a list of things to do and started working on each as a discrete function. Doing my best to redesign this sanely. I realize that no matter what I’ll fail but it’s a nice dream nevertheless. 🙂 On the plus side I’m thinking about interface more discretely from the functional application. Really helping to think “now if I had to display this in gtk what would I need”.

Also realized how bad I’m getting about responding to email. I have a backlog of messages that I’ve tagged as ‘need responses’ that I’ve just let lapse. I’m a bad, bad, bad, bad person.


Tape runs went reasonably well, some funkiness with getting information mailed to the admin address. Seems like amanda might actually need mailx installed to work with emailing notices. Might need to make a point of checking that out for fc1 and 2.


Reading fedora-devel-list with regard to the rpm build tree organization was incredibly helpful. Need to implement some of those things for myself – especially the separation of srpms into name-ver subtrees for sources and specs – that makes a lot of sense to me.

Misc Thoughts:

I wish advogato would not strip img tags. That’d be cool.

The last track on all of the Lord of The Ring’s Soundtracks is fantastic.

  • FOTR = May it Be
  • TTT = Gollum’s Song
  • ROTK = Into The West
