my pim 1.4 package now on sourceforge: help me test it again please!
4 days ago, I asked you all to help me test my PIM package and
Bruno Barrera C." told me 6 things I needed to do:
I've done all of them, written a manpage and some documentation, spiffed
it up and put it on sourceforge. It builds clean in pbuilder/sid.
It purports to be a little list manager but in reality it's an little
XML-based database with referential integrity. The design goals are:
start quick, don't require a server, and work the way Tom Ballard thinks
it should. I'm Left Handed to the max.
I tried all the 4000 evolutions, kontacts, list managers, and
postgres/mysql front ends -- but this one stays crunchy in milk!
Give it a whirl. Let me know if it barfs. I had to keep the design
goals very "down to earth" to finish it -- I kept trying to make it
real fancy and started over 20 times. Then last fall I spent a month
just grinding forward till I got something...
I use it a lot. With simple lists and some XSL to do things with the
data, plus the speed of launch, it actually is worthwhile.
