Writing day

Today was my work from home day and it turned into proposal writing day. I had three major writeups that had been hanging over my head, and I managed to finish them all (although it took me until after 7pm after starting at 10:30 this morning, so nothing else got done).

Only the first is public. I finally wrote up the details of how we use revision control systems (ETA: link is now dead), for both CVS and Subversion. Most of the CVS details are copied from an old guide I wrote a while back, but now everything is in one place. There are even more details I could put together, but this is a good starting point.

Still on my plate is converting the Debian package build documentation to a web page and writing up how we handle our locally developed packages (the prerequisite for which is putting my release tool up on my pages), but that's somewhat of a lower priority.

The other two were internal proposals, one around how we handle functional accounts, and a second about how we should use LDAP to do fine-grained account management on our client Unix systems.

So, no reviews written today (although I will mention in passing that Parable of the Sower is a damn good book), and no more Debian or Kerberos work. I'm not sure yet what I'm going to tackle tomorrow. It's probably time for me to do more serious coding, but on the other hand fixing the WebAuth web pages finally is rather attractive.
