Bug#111612: ITP: davinci

Package: wnpp

Just inserted the README here:

/* DaVinci:  a journalling library, 
 *           a GNOME application, 
 *           and Evolution component.
 *           Copyright (c) 2001 John Tunison <john@tunison.net>

DaVinci is a journalling client.  It works as a stand-alone journal manager, or with online journalling systems such as Advogato and LiveJournal.

DaVinci began as a series of patches to LogJam.  Eventually, very little of the original code was left.  Many of the good ideas in LogJam have been gratefully stolen in DaVinci, especially the "look and feel".  Many thanks to the original authors of LogJam, especially Evan Martin <eeyem@u.washington.edu>.

If you are interested in writing journalling code of your own, you may want to look at libdavinci.  There is complete model/view separation, and the possibilities are endless.

For a complete list of features, see FEATURES.

If you need help or have comments, please use the mailing lists!  


GNOME 1.4:  http://www.gnome.org
	(in particular, gnome-libs and libxml)
libcurl:  http://curl.haxx.se/libcurl/

	for music autodetection:  XMMS 1.2 or later.  http://www.xmms.org

Getting Started
DaVinci has a pretty standard setup.
	$ ./configure 
	$ make
	$ su
	# make install
should be all you need to install it.

The installed executable is called "davinci".

Using DaVinci
If you have any questions or topics that should be covered in this section,
let me know.

Known Bugs
What!?  Where?  :)

- "history" in the Advogato model is loosely defined to be .. um.. the entries on the first page of your journal.  It doesn't really make sense to fix this until somebody gets Advo servers to spit out something other than HTML. 
- "friend groups" are not supported in LJ; neither are friend group security levels
- the evolution component is not yet finished
- the command line version is not yet finished

And the many others who worked to make LogJam, LiveJournal, Advogato, Evolution, and GNOME the successes they are today.
