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

83 function is called twice on the same file.
84
85 29 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

126 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
127 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
128
129 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

131 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
132
133 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
134 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
135 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
136 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
137
138 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
139 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

152 get subarch.
153
154 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
155 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
156 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
157 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
158 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
159 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
160
161 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

171 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
172 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
173 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
174 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
175
176 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
177 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe

179
180 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
181 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
182 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
183 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
184 as follows:
185 <etc-portage>
186 <file name="package.mask"/>
187 <file name="package.unmask">
188 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
189 </file>
190 <file name="package.use">
191 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
192 -java
193 </entry>
194 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
195 -ldap
196 </entry>
197 </file>
198 </etc-portage>
199
200
201 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
202 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
203 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
204 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
205 keys in the same order.
206
207 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
208 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
209 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
210 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
211
212 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
213 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
214 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
215 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
216 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
217 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
218
219 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
220 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
221 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
222 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
223
224 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
225 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
226 in add_network_interface.
227
228 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
229 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
230 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
231 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
232 prepare_chroot.
233
234 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

243 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
244
245 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
246 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
247 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
248 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
249
250 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
251 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
252 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
253 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
254 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
255 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
256 instead of the package atom.
257
258 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
259 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
260 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
261 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
262 __builtin__.file.
263
264 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
265 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
266 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure
267 PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY are created in _emerge if needed. Add support
268 for 'none' kernel config for build_kernel phase. Put kernel_script in

272 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
273
274 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
275 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
276 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,

278 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
279 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
280 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
281
282 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>

289
290 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
291 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
292 be executable.
293
294 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
295 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
296 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
297
298 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
299 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
300 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
301

448 GLIStorageDevice (pointed out by chotchki). Fixed missing int()s. Split
449 'custom' sync option into 'none' and 'snapshot'. Minor fixes to
450 GLIStorageDevice as suggested by pychecker. Fix minor bug in
451 _get_packages_to_emerge(). Fix _quickpkg_deps() to call
452 _get_packages_to_emerge()

471 code.
472
473 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
474 Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
475 adding the new value to the end of the file.
476
477 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
478 Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.

482 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
483 pythondoc.
484
485 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
486 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
487 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
488 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
489 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
490
491 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
492 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
493 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
494 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
495
496 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
497 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
498

500 Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
501
502 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
503 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
504
505 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

507 sed to properly strip out junk.
508
509 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
510 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel

519 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
520 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
521 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
522 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
523 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
524 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
525
526 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
527 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
528 when unpacking tarball.
529
530 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
531 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
532 filesystem_tools code.
533
534 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
535 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
536 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
537 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
538 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
539
540 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
541 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
542 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
543 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
544
545 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
546 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
547
548 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
549 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
550 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
551
552 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
553 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
554 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
555
556 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
557 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
558 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
559 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
560 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
561 the install profile if available.
562
563 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
564 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
565 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
566
567 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
568 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
569
570 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
571 took chroot out of grub_install command.
572
573 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
574 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
575 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
576 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
577 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
578 as it breaks the piping.
579
580 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
581 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
582
583 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
584 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
585 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
586 GLIInstallProfile.
587
588 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
589 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
590 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
591 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
592
593 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
594 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
595 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
596 to start/end sectors
597
598 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
599 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
600
601 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
602 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
603 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
604 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
605 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
606 for the generated script from spawn()
607
608 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
609 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
610 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
611 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
612 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
613
614 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
615 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
616
617 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
618 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
619
620 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
621 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
622 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
623
624 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
625 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
626
627 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
628 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
629
630 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
631 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
632 lang parameter to __init__()
633
634 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
635 updates to TODO list.
636
637 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
638 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
639 'emerge -p blah'
640
641 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
642 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
643 added quickpkg to TODO list
644
645 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
646 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
647 so that the installer can continue.
648
649 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
650 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
651 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
652 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
653
654 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
655 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
656 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
657
658 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
659 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
660 of adding them.
661
662 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
663 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
664
665 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
666 updated TODO list. (again)
667
668 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
669 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
670 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
671 fixed custom kernel config (again)
672
673 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
674 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
675 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
676
677 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
678 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
679 the partitions :P
680
681 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
682 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
683 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
684 blank.
685
686 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
687 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
688 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
689
690 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
691 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
692 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
693 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
694 mounting code.
695
696 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
697 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
698 sets it randomly.
699
700 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
701 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
702
703 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
704 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
705
706 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
707 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
708 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
709
710 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
711 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
712 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
713
714 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
715 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
716 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
717 be safe before third pass.
718
719 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
720 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
721 will test when i get back to school.
722 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
723 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
724
725 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
726 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
727 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
728 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
729 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
730
731 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
732 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
733
734 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
735 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
736
737 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
738 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
739 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
740
741 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
742 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
743 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
744 some may still have eluded me.
745
746 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
747 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
748 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
749
750 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
751 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
752
753 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
754 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
755 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
756 from GLIInstallProfile.
757
758 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
759 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
760
761 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
762 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
763 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
764
765 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
766 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
767 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
768
769 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
770 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
771 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
772
773 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
774 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
775 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
776
777 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
778 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
779 can be resized.
780
781 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
782 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
783 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
784
785 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
786 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
787 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
788
789 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
790 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
791 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
792 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
793 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
794
795 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
796
797 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
798 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
799 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
800
801 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
802
803 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
804 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
805 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
806 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
807 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
808 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
809 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
810
811 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
812
813 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
814 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
815 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
816 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
817 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
818 Added initial unit test code.
819
820 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
821
822 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
823 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
824 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
