I think I'm to the point of wanting the overlay security mechanism and journal I've been describing on my own machine. That is, if we can implement everything it would allow me to work on my own machine (and I have rather demanding requirements from a computer) while still providing extensive protections and a number of very cool features that would make it more usable than the mere file-and-directory approach to organising projects.
On the less upbeat side, complete failure getting sugar-jhbuild to work this evening. Argh. Wanted to play with some ideas and wound up killing 5 hours screwing around with idiotic autoconf junk that can't recognise that a library with .12 is a higher number than a library with a .5 (at least, that seems to be the problem).
Why are we building 71 packages including Python 2.4 and GTK/Gnome fragments? Python 2.5 and Gnome are already installed on the platform. I'll have to find more time to mess around with getting the Fedora 7 image to recognise the network so I can trying building in there instead of the Gentoo image, but that will have to wait until another OLPC day can be found, tomorrow I need to concentrate on billable work.
