Spent the whole day working on porting the few bits of old-Cinemon that are actually used by ACI over to the new-Cinemon codebase so that we can use the old Cinemon box as a query server. Stephen over on the twisted discussion list sent me some sample code for the operation on Friday, but it was twisted.web, rather than Nevow code. I also mis-interpreted how one of the features worked, and entirely missed another key feature of the code (the fact that the resource that demands the authentication goes on the outside of the portal).
After I finally got the server running properly I started working on the first method I want to export. And discovered that XMLRPC is rather limited in the datatypes it can support (having spent much of last week working with Perspective Broker) and wound up having to hack around that.
Anyway, tomorrow going to finish up the porting and then get back to the query server code.
