8 src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:
9 Refactor install_bootloader code and _install_{grub,lilo} so that 'none' for
10 bootloader works again. Also rename _install_{grub,lilo} to

63
64 27 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>

79
80 24 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
81 Add dhcp_options to the CC, CConfig, and GenDialog. More overall changes to
82 GenDialog as it gets closer to completion.
83
84 22 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>

86 instead of int() in add_partition_device_partition() for minor (closes 96804)
87
88 21 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
89 Changed setup_network_post to check for 'interfaces[interface][0] != "dhcp"'
90 instead of 'interfaces[interface][1]' since DHCP uses that field for its
91 options. setup_network_post() writes custom DHCP options to /etc/conf.d/net.
92
93 20 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
94 Apply spawn() patch from #96644 (with minor changes). Make sure the return

107 get subarch.
108
109 16 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
110 Backend partitioning will create disklabel is none exists. Installprofile
111 defaults to "" now instead of "msdos" for disklabel type. Fix for
112 mount_local_partitions() to remember device along with minor in the
113 parts_to_mount dict (closes #96319). mount_local_partitions() cleanups and
114 add else block to log unsupported netmount types to mount_network_shares()
115
116 15 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
117 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:

126 2.4 support (pull version data from /usr/src/linux/Makefile), incl.
127 'make dep' call for custom compile. build_mode support for prepare-only and
128 none types completed. custom compile function chains shell functions in
129 spawned script, to allow for catching all errors.
130
131 15 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
132 fixed up build_kernel in ArchTemplate for build_mode as well as in dialogfe
133 and GenDialog. other gendialog updates as well. kernel updates untested.
134
135 14 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
136 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
137 Change structure of etc-portage stuff. The serialization was broken before my
138 last commit, and I am the only person that's ever used it. The new schema is
139 as follows:
140 <etc-portage>
141 <file name="package.mask"/>
142 <file name="package.unmask">
143 <entry atom="sys-kernel/openmosix-sources"/>
144 </file>
145 <file name="package.use">
146 <entry atom="sys-libs/db">
147 -java
148 </entry>
149 <entry atom="dev-libs/cyrus-sasl">
150 -ldap
151 </entry>
152 </file>
153 </etc-portage>
154
155
156 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
157 src/GLIInstallProfile.py:
158 Add new entry for gli-profile/kernel-build-method item. Add missing
159 serialize_etc_portage (temporary). Make serialize_make_conf always print the
160 keys in the same order.
161
162 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
163 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
164 Clean up commenting used by _edit_config(), and fix bug where wrong comment
165 was repeatedly appended to make.conf.
166
167 13 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
168 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
169 Put some Linux-2.6 specific code under a if statement. Store list of
170 successfully mounted swap device for using swapoff. Add proper error checking
171 to install_packages and install_filesystem_tools. Fixed namespace conflicts on
172 'file'. Clean up some redundant code (thanks to pychecker).'
173
174 13 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
175 Fix typos: get_extended() instead of get_extended_partition(). Added
176 list_mirrors() and list_stage_tarballs_from_mirror() functions to GLIUtility.
177 Change _emerge("sync") call to direct call to spawn to avoid 'emerge -k sync'
178
179 12 Jun 2005; John N. Laliberte <allanonjl@gentoo.org>
180 GLIInstallProfile.py: add missing set for dhcp_options if a tuple is passed
181 in add_network_interface.
182
183 12 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
184 ensure PORTAGE_TMPDIR/PORT_LOGDIR/PORTDIR_OVERLAY/PKGDIR exist prior to any
185 usage - this caused a failure for stage1/stage2 previously. swapoff for swap
186 space at end of install. Mount /dev, /dev/shm, /dev/pts and /sys during
187 prepare_chroot.
188
189 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org> +src/cli/clife.py,

198 and should not be touched (netboot for example).
199
200 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
201 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
202 pcmcia is not a variable name for a call to _add_to_runlevel, it should be a
203 string!. Try to use binary packages if available by default.
204
205 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
206 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
207 More error checking for _add_to_runlevel, to ensure that the init script
208 actually exists before we try to add it. set_services phase must take place
209 after the package installation, otherwise the init scripts might not exist.
210 Find the correct init script for the cron and logging daemons, and add that
211 instead of the package atom.
212
213 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
214 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
215 Fix up _edit_config so that it works if the file doesn't already exist. Fix
216 usage of 'file' to 'contents' for the variable name, as it shadows
217 __builtin__.file.
218
219 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
220 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py:
221 Add MTA install code, and include MTA install phase. Ensure

227 Rename mta variables to match syslog/cron variables.
228
229 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
230 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py,
231 src/.cvsignore, src/fe/dialog/.cvsignore, src/fe/gtk/.cvsignore,
232 src/fe/net/client/.cvsignore, src/fe/net/server/.cvsignore,
233 src/templates/.cvsignore, src/tests/.cvsignore:
234 Refactor partition formatting again to include error checking. Allow 'none'
235 for kernel and bootloader specifications. Add .cvsignore files for .py[co].
236
237 11 Jun 2005; Robin H. Johnson <robbat2@gentoo.org>
238 src/GLIArchitectureTemplate.py, src/templates/x86ArchitectureTemplate.py:

244
245 11 Jun 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
246 Move /tmp/spawn.sh and /tmp/post-install to /var/tmp since that should always
247 be executable.
248
249 10 Jun 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
250 Fixed one of the FIXME's in the ClientConfiguration. There is now some
251 error checking when you call set_architecture_template.
252
253 10 Jun 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
254 moved the mkfsopts input to the partition options menu instead of the during
255 the creation process. updated GenDialog to say it supports reiserfs v3.
256

437 Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
438 pythondoc.
439
440 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
441 Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
442 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
443 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
444 point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
445
446 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
447 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
448 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
449 key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
450
451 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
452 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
453
454 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
455 Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.
456
457 8 Apr 2005; Scott Myron <samyron@gentoo.org>
458 Added support for DHCP options and MAC addresses in the InstallProfile.
459
460 3 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
461 Changed mountopts check to work for blank and whitespace. Pipe emerge through
462 sed to properly strip out junk.
463
464 2 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
465 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
466 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
467
468 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
469 Fixed indent problem in GLICController
470
471 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
472 Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
473
474 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
475 Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
476 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
477 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
478 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
479 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
480
481 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
482 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
483 when unpacking tarball.
484
485 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
486 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
487 filesystem_tools code.
488
489 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
490 Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
491 the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
492 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
493 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
494
495 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
496 changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
497 URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
498 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
499
500 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
501 set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
502
503 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
504 GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
505 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
506
507 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
508 small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
509 after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
510
511 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
512 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
513 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
514 spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
515 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
516 the install profile if available.
517
518 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
519 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
520 to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
521
522 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
523 should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
524
525 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
526 took chroot out of grub_install command.
527
528 21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
529 Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
530 instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
531 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
532 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
533 as it breaks the piping.
534
535 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
536 Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
537
538 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
539 Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
540 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
541 GLIInstallProfile.
542
543 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
544 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
545 to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
546 into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
547
548 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
549 Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
550 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
551 to start/end sectors
552
553 17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
554 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
555
556 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
557 Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
558 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
559 creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
560 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
561 for the generated script from spawn()
562
563 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
564 Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
565 InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
566 ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
567 Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
568
569 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
570 Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
571
572 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
573 Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
574
575 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
576 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
577 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
578
579 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
580 Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
581
582 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
583 added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
584
585 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
586 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
587 lang parameter to __init__()
588
589 10 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
590 updates to TODO list.
591
592 6 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
593 Initial code for quickpkg GRP support. Fix loop to grab packages from
594 'emerge -p blah'
595
596 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
597 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
598 added quickpkg to TODO list
599
600 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
601 Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
602 so that the installer can continue.
603
604 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
605 Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
606 Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
607 Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
608
609 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
610 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
611 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
612
613 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
614 more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
615 of adding them.
616
617 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
618 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
619
620 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
621 updated TODO list. (again)
622
623 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
624 changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
625 fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
626 fixed custom kernel config (again)
627
628 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
629 changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
630 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
631
632 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
633 partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
634 the partitions :P
635
636 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
637 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
638 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
639 blank.
640
641 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
642 Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
643 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
644
645 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
646 Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
647 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
648 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
649 mounting code.
650
651 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
652 Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
653 sets it randomly.
654
655 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
656 Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
657
658 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
659 Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
660
661 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
662 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
663 partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
664
665 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
666 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
667 resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
668
669 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
670 Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
671 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
672 be safe before third pass.
673
674 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
675 Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
676 will test when i get back to school.
677 also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
678 agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
679
680 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
681 Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
682 parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
683 test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
684 with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
685
686 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
687 Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
688
689 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
690 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
691
692 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
693 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
694 Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
695
696 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
697 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
698 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
699 some may still have eluded me.
700
701 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
702 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
703 Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
704
705 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
706 Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
707
708 04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
709 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
710 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
711 from GLIInstallProfile.
712
713 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
714 GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
715
716 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
717 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
718 actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
719
720 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
721 Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
722 GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
723
724 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
725 Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
726 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
727
728 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
729 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
730 network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
731
732 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
733 Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
734 can be resized.
735
736 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
737 Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
738 Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
739
740 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
741 Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
742 partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
743
744 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
745 Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
746 for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
747 GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
748 to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
749
750 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
751
752 Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
753 files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
754 changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
755
756 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
757
758 Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
759 have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
760 will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
761 partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
762 same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
763 environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
764 isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
765
766 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
767
768 Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
769 obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
770 to allow for easier modification (mutable, rather than immutable objects). Updated
771 existing pydoc and added more. Implemented body of GLI.InstallProfile.parse().
772 Cleaned file format of GLI.py a bit. Fixed all accessors to use self references.
773 Added initial unit test code.
774
775 9 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
776
777 Added initial changelog. Setting up the basic structure of the CVS repository
778 for the project. Added the UML class diagram in docs. Added a skeletal GLI
779 python module. Added misc files such news, authors, etc.
