Long Day's Conference (Presentations and consultations...)

Spent the day at the International Forum on e-Learning and Standardization at which Walter suggested I present. 10 minute general introduction on the project. I'm told all the presentations were being recorded and should show up online at some point.

Rest of the day spent mostly in answering questions for people. I'm getting toward exhausted ...

I realise that the 1CC folks are all busy with ...

Documentation and Auto-documentation (My day in tracking things down...)

Spent the first 8 or so hours of the day tracking down documentation, creating auto-generated documentation and the like. Results are on the Tutorials and API Reference pages on the wiki.

Then sat down to work on making a simple API documentation system that's template based. Working off epydoc's introspection mechanism for that. So far ...
