dbagg3: Please excuse the mess
Wow. So it looks like there are some people starting to follow to what I'm doing with
dbagg3, and they're showing me how woefully prepared I am for the attention from tinkerers who are actually trying to, you know, run my code. Things have been crazy busy for me at work, so I haven't been getting done what I've planned. But, I do need to pull a few things together and clean a few things up. I'll soon be answering the smattering of email I've gotten so far, but until then, a few quick thoughts:
My source control is a bit of a mess at the moment. Not only have I switched from CVS to SVN-- but even if you followed me in that migration, I've not kept committed code in working order. I already know that this is a horrible habit, but since no one's really been looking, I haven't been called on it until now. (Heh, heh--d'oh.) Planning this weekend (but hopefully today) to resolve this, so that moving forward, svn trunk will be (as far as possible) in a working state at any given moment.
I've hacked one of my dependencies, SQLObject, by applying a patch to support SELECT DISTINCT queries. This has understandably caused problems for some people who have no idea what I did. This patch has turned out to be essential, though I don't know if/when it will or would be included in a release of SQLObject. So... I wonder if I should dump my working copy of SQLObject into source control? Otherwise, applying the DISTINCT patch to your SQLObject install should work.
At some point very soon, I want to change the name of this thing to feedReactor. Yes, I know there's already a feedparser, and a feeddemon, and a feedburner, and someone's probably got a feedkitchensink in the works, but I like this name and want to run with it.
So, in the meantime while I straighten some things out, please excuse the mess and thanks for bearing with me!
