Git migration

I have finally migrated all of my software to git. This was not a very fun process due to the nested nature of my “drobillad” repository, but now all projects live in their own git repositories with history and tags from SVN preserved.

It is still possible to build all my audio software in one step, the top-level repository is now a skeleton with git submodules for each project. Anyone using SVN should switch immediately, the SVN repositories will remain in their current state for the foreseeable future but all development activity will move to git.

All the repositories are available in cgit, but changes and tickets and so on are in Trac as always. Happy hacking.

Trac Captcha

Disregard my last post. After a fun (read: unbearably painful as always) day of messing with Trac, I finally managed to actually get Captcha to work. If you’re one of the many who have tried to create an account in the past only to be foiled by the impossible Captcha, try again, it should work fine now.

Anonymous users can file tickets again, there is a Captcha on the ticket page now as well. Hopefully this keeps the spam out…

Anonymous Trac Tickets

Unfortunately, due to spammers, I’ve had to remove the abililty to anonymously file tickets at my LAD Trac. I really dislike this, since it’s hard enough to get people to file tickets as it is, but… well… spammers ruin Internet, film at eleven.

If there’s problems with registration or anything else, please let me know. Perhaps I should try OpenID?

Flattr is an interesting idea, so I’ve decided to try it out. I’ve added SLV2, Patchage, and Ingen as “Things” (perhaps I should add a generic “ LAD stuff” Thing… or come up with a name for the meta-project that is my LAD work?). Adding an LV2 Thing would be good as well, but it would not be fair for that money to go to me alone, so I am not sure what to do in that situation.

Let’s get more LAD projects on Flattr so I have things in the community to donate my initial “means” to :)

In related news, svn and/or LV2 followers have probably noticed my progress in LADville has been uncharacteristically stagnant lately… my computing set up sort of fell apart (long story), and I have no working audio setup (*&%$ firewire…), so motivation has been running a bit low. However, this winter, I’m deliberately moving somewhere infinitely more boring than Toronto so I have nothing to do but work. Hopefully by next spring, there will be solid releases of all my software (particularly Ingen), and I can finish all those big fancy LV2 extensions people have been pining for. Then I can justifiably beg for people to click those donation buttons, right? ;)
