26 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
27 Fix codeman's screwup of changing the service seperator to ',' in the parser
28 without changing it in the serialization code! Also document this in a
29 comment so you find it easier. Everybody needs to make sure they update
30 their install profiles!

74 function is called twice on the same file.
75
76 29 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

94 fe/gtk/RcDotConf and put them in Utility. fixed self bug.
95 added dialog.py to the fe/dialog directory so it actually gets used.
96
97 27 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

116 24 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
117 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
118 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
119
120 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

122 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
123
124 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
125 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
126 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
127 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
128
129 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
130 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

143 get subarch.
144
145 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
146 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
147 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
148 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
149 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
150 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
151
152 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

162 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
163 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
164 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
165 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
166
167 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
168 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe

170
171 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
172 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
173 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
174 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
175 as follows:
176 <etc-portage>
177 <file name="package.mask"/>
178 <file name="package.unmask">
179 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
180 </file>
181 <file name="package.use">
182 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
183 -java
184 </entry>
185 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
186 -ldap
187 </entry>
188 </file>
189 </etc-portage>
190

192 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
193 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
194 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
195 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
196 keys in the same order.
197
198 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
199 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
200 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
201 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
202
203 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
204 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
205 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
206 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
207 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
208 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
209
210 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
211 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
212 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
213 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
214
215 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
216 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
217 in add_network_interface.
218
219 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
220 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
221 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
222 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
223 prepare_chroot.
224
225 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

234 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
235
236 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
237 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
238 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
239 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
240
241 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
242 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
243 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
244 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
245 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
246 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
247 instead of the package atom.
248
249 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
250 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
251 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
252 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
253 __builtin__.file.

255 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
256 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
257 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
258 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
259 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in

263 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
264
265 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
266 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
267 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
268 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
269 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
270 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
271 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
272
273 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

280
281 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

283 be executable.
284
285 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
286 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
287 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
288
289 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
290 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
291 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
292

462 code.
463
464 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
465 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
466 adding the new value to the end of the file.
467
468 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
469 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.

471
472 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
473 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
474 pythondoc.
475
476 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
477 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
478 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
479 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
480 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
481
482 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
483 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
484 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
485 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
486
487 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
488 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
489
490 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
491 Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
492

494 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
495
496 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

498 sed to properly strip out junk.
499
500 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
501 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
502 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
503
504 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
505 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
506
507 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

509
510 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
511 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
512 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
513 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
514 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
515 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
516
517 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
518 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
519 when unpacking tarball.
520
521 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
522 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
523 filesystem_tools code.
524
525 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
526 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
527 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
528 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
529 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
530
531 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
532 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
533 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
534 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
535
536 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
537 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
538
539 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
540 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
541 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
542
543 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
544 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
545 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
546
547 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
548 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
549 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
550 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
551 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
552 the install profile if available.
553
554 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
555 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
556 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
557
558 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
559 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
560
561 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
562 took chroot out of grub_install command.
563
564 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
565 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
566 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
567 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
568 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
569 as it breaks the piping.
570
571 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
572 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
573
574 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
575 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
576 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
577 GLIInstallProfile.
578
579 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
580 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
581 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
582 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
583
584 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
585 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
586 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
587 to start/end sectors
588
589 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
590 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
591
592 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
593 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
594 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
595 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
596 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
597 for the generated script from spawn()
598
599 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
600 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
601 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
602 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
603 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
604
605 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
606 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
607
608 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
609 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
610
611 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
612 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
613 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
614
615 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
616 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
617
618 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
619 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
620
621 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
622 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
623 lang parameter to __init__()
624
625 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
626 updates to TODO list.
627
628 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
629 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
630 'emerge -p blah'
631
632 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
633 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
634 added quickpkg to TODO list
635
636 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
637 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
638 so that the installer can continue.
639
640 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
641 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
642 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
643 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
644
645 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
646 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
647 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
648
649 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
650 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
651 of adding them.
652
653 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
654 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
655
656 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
657 updated TODO list. (again)
658
659 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
660 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
661 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
662 fixed custom kernel config (again)
663
664 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
665 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
666 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
667
668 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
669 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
670 the partitions :P
671
672 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
673 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
674 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
675 blank.
676
677 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
678 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
679 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
680
681 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
682 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
683 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
684 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
685 mounting code.
686
687 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
688 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
689 sets it randomly.
690
691 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
692 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
693
694 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
695 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
696
697 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
698 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
699 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
700
701 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
702 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
703 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
704
705 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
706 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
707 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
708 be safe before third pass.
709
710 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
711 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
712 will test when i get back to school.
713 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
714 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
715
716 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
717 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
718 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
719 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
720 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
721
722 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
723 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
724
725 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
726 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
727
728 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
729 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
730 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
731
732 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
733 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
734 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
735 some may still have eluded me.
736
737 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
738 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
739 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
740
741 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
742 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
743
744 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
745 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
746 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
747 from GLIInstallProfile.
748
749 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
750 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
751
752 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
753 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
754 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
755
756 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
757 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
758 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
759
760 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
761 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
762 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
763
764 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
765 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
766 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
767
768 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
769 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
770 can be resized.
771
772 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
773 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
774 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
775
776 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
777 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
778 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
779
780 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
781 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
782 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
783 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
784 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
785
786 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
787
788 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
789 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
790 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
791
792 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
793
794 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
795 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
796 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
797 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
798 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
799 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
800 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
801
802 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
803
804 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
805 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
806 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
807 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
808 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
809 Added initial unit test code.
810
811 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
812
813 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
814 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
815 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
