I haven’t had a chance to update things on Spectaclar or engage in a while, but I’ve at least updated the Spectaclar news feed with some interesting things I’ve culled from the past month of backed up blog entries. I won’t be very active on Spectaclar stuff for a little while longer, as I’m working on a voting plugin I plan to deploy on Electowiki
I’ve implemented a news feed for Spectaclar that’s a general purpose open source access control feed, that will probably also veer a lot into authentication, identity, and other single signon stuff. It includes updates on Spectaclar, but also incorporates outside blogs. It uses the reFeed component of reBlog. reBlog is very, very cool…it makes it really simple to syndicate lots of news feeds.
I’ve been working on a bunch of miscellaneous stuff this week which are loosely related to the “Spectaclar” project:
- A lot of wiki cleanup – I think I got most of the dead links, so that there’s at least stub articles everywhere there’s a link
- Patch to MediaWiki – not a huge contribution, but one that really helped me understand the access control model in MW
- Wrote a development planning doc for WordPress. There’s been a lot of acrimony this week about the WordPress development process, which the planning doc is a response to. I’m waiting for a review from Lorelle before floating it on the wp-hackers list. The acrimony has already died down, but I’m hoping this will provide some structure for requesting features.
- I’ve installed Bugzilla/CVS (2.19.3+) – thinking about taking a stab an OpenID plugin for BZ, since I’m somewhat familiar with the BZ auth plugin model.
